Theater Great Hall
Divinas palabras Valle Inclán/Centro Dramático Nacional
Between 8 and 35 euros
Divinas palabras, subtitled Tragicomedia de aldea, or “Village tragicomedy”, is Spanish theatre at its finest, its most modern exponent, its driving force and zenith, and a work that has yet to be surpassed. Tragedy, drama, comedy and the downright ridiculous all play their part to form this tragicomedy, where Goya’s influence is obvious with his black paintings, and Los Disparates in particular, with their portrayal of the horrors of war.
This unmatched work of Spanish literature is haunted by ancient imagery of death, bigotry, ingenuity, barbarity, greed and luxury. However, most of all, this epic vital source—always suppressed, always hidden, always condemned and quite often forbidden— is about sexual freedom. Divinas palabras truly is one of the two or three greatest and most widespread examples of our country’s literary history. It is a work that has not lost even a single drop of its corrosive power, even now in the 21st century.
