“Montenegro (Barbaric Comedies)”, in the TNC

The production condenses the three works that make up the well-known “Barbaric Comedies” by Ramón María de Valle-Inclán and can be seen up until the 26th of October

Up until the 26th of October the Sala Gran of the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya is hosting Montenegro (Barbaric Comedies), a version by the Artistic Director of the Centro Dramático Nacional, Ernesto Caballero, of the dramatic trilogy Barbaric Comedies by playwright and author Ramón María del Valle-Inclán, which fuses the three original works into one production.

The Barbaric Comedies tell of the splendour and decadence of a line of despotic and haughty Galician feudal lords embodied in the figure of Don Juan Manuel Montenegro, who embarks on an expiatory voyage of remorse and capitulation. The play, which stars Ramón Marea, last year’s winner of the National Theatre Award, is a full-frontal portrayal of misery in the darkest hours and deals with subjects such as greed and the class struggle.

As a complementary element to the play, on the 22nd of October at 6.30 pm, the TNC restaurant will host a conference headed by Ignacio García May dealing with the supernatural as an element in the works of Valle-Inclán. The conference is free of charge and prior reservations may be made here.

Montenegro (Barbaric Comedies) will continue up until the 26th of October in the Sala Gran of the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya from Wednesday to Saturday at 8 pm and at 6 pm on Sunday. Tickets are priced at 28 euros, though some discounts are available, and may be purchased here.
