Miguel de Cervantes is our most important writer and Madrid pays tribute to him with Corral Cervantes Festival. From August 24th till September 24th, the street Cuesta del Moyano, near to El Retiro Park, receives the first edition of this event about “el Siglo de Oro” with theatre, music, gastronomy, wine, workshops and handmade products.
Theatre is the star: like if it was the XVII century, the audience can eat and drink during the play. Some titles that will be represented are Mujeres y criados (Mon till Sat. at 19h); Los espejos de Don Quijote (Mon- till Sat. at 21h); or La Calderona (Wed and Thus at 23h) mixed with hip hop music. Also there will be improvisation at A nadie se le dio veneno en risa (Fri and Sat at 23h).
About gastronomy, this part will put together the best food, wine, ice creams, juices and cocktails. Also a carrousel!
For the performances you must buy a ticket (from 16€) but the food area is open.
