About the Authors
  • Leading theater historians and practitioners map a theatrical history that moves from the religious tropes of Medieval Iberia to the postmodern practices of twenty-first-century Spain. Considering work across the different languages of Spain, from vernacular Latin to Catalan, Galician and Basque, this history engages with the work of actors and directors, designers and publishers, agents and impresarios, and architects and ensembles, in indicating the ways in which theater has both commented on and intervened in the major debates and issues of the day. Chapters consider paratheatrical activities and popular performance, such as the comedia de magia and flamenco, alongside the works of Spain's major dramatists, from Lope de Vega to Federico García Lorca. Featuring revealing interviews with actress Nuria Espert, director Lluís Pasqual and playwright Juan Mayorga, it positions Spanish theater within a paradigm that recognizes its links and intersections with wider European and Latin American practices.

    • Presents a detailed historical overview alongside chapters that treat specific phenomena and theatrical forms, including the evolution of the director and flamenco and zarzuela
    • Features interviews with three leading Spanish practitioners: actress Nuria Espert, director Lluìs Pasqual and playwright Juan Mayorga
    • Considers important interactions with Latin America throughout the volume

    Reviews & endorsements

    "If the curtain that CUP has raised embraces on the stage of this volume the examination of the Hispanic dramatic tradition as much as the continuation of international hispanism, the project should be received with applause from those of us who become members of the audience as much as participants in the cast of characters."
    --Boletín de la Real Academia Española (trans. from the original Spanish by Maria Delgado)

    "Copious notes throughout and an excellent bibliography attest to the exemplary scholarship in this book."
