HISPANIC GOLDEN AGE CLASSICS
SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER 2021
Presented in collaboration with Repertorio Español and Diversifying the Classics | UCLA, this four-part series of events will focus on a play by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, the famous playwright, poet, and nun writing in Mexico in the latter half of the 17th-century.
is a multi-part initiative of Red Bull Theater to provide an engaging and educational experience for all who are interested in Shakespeare’s Othello and the world in which we live. Benefit Series events run October 5-22, 2020.
The Hispanic Golden Age offers one of the most vibrant theatrical repertoires ever produced. At the same time that England saw the flourishing of Shakespeare on the Elizabethan and Jacobean stage and in the decades that followed, Spanish-speaking playwrights including Lope de Vega, Tirso de Molina, Ana Caro, and Calderón de la Barca flourished on the continent and in the New World. Many of the works created during this time have still not been translated into English.
Red Bull Theater is committed to expanding our repertoire by seeking out and sharing lesser-known texts that stand the test of time. Love is the Greater Labyrinth (Amor es más laberinto) by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz–one of the Hispanic Golden Age’s most accomplished female playwrights–is just such a play.
Fortuitously, during National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15), you'll have the opportunity to experience Sor Juana's play in its original Spanish, produced by Repertorio Español, and in a brand new English-language translation created by Diversifying the Classics | UCLA. Both online readings will be presented with subtitles. We'll also be hosting two interactive panel discussions, complementing the viewing experience.
Únete al espectáculos! Join the show!! All the events are free, but donations are suggested.
This series is supported by the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain.
