CASTELVINES Y MONTESES is a celebration of theatre. It is putting the verse of Lope, the story of Bandello, the play of Rojas Zorrilla's version, the flight of Shakespeare and the acidity of Quevedo at the service of a show full of humour, play, music, magic, clown and dance.
Lope de Vega and William Shakespeare started from the same sources and wrote Castelvines y Monteses and Romeo and Juliet at the same time, at the end of the 16th century. Unlike Shakespeare, Lope writes a comedy with the story of the lovers of Verona.
13 actors and actresses who embrace the verses of Lope de Vega, and fall in love and enamour the audience with their acting talent, their mastery of the body, the quantum and the instruments with which they set in real time the events of Julia and Roselo, Celia and Marín, Dorotea and Anselmo. The scenography is at first sight simple but chameleon-like and, above all, full of magic that works like a box of constant surprises.
An almost circus-like show, for the whole family, that reconciles us with the theatre of the Golden Century.
