“The Golden Age”

Museo Nacional del Teatro
Ranked #4 of 24 things to do in Almagro
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 August 2015

This is the only surviving example of a Spanish open air theatre from the “Golden Age.” The tour costs a mere €3 which is a bargain. You get an audio wand and are free to wander what in England we would call the stalls and the circle and upper circle. In this theatre they all had different names and different purposes. This fascinating introduction to the world of medieval touring players lasts I guess about 35 minutes or so. The commentary is clear, the English impeccable, the information absorbing. If I have one regret it was being unable to buy a book, in English, on the subject. While we tourists were wondering about taking our photos, a small band of actors were in the early stages of, in seemed to me, blocking a play. Blocking is the process of working out where characters enter and leave and where they go and what they do in between.

Highly recommended if you any interest in the subject.

The information cards in each room were brief but gives you enough information to understand the history of theatre.
These cards are available in Spanish or English, so it is great.

Quite interesting displays. A couple of euros entry charge. Not very big so doesn't take long to get around. There didn't seem to be many visitors, although they seem to get some parties of students going around.
