Inside Maria Guerrero Theatre


Remember I was going to see La Fura dels Baus in Maria Guerrero Theatre!?... Well here is an inside photo of this wonderful theater 1st home of the CDN (National center of Drama)... Opened in 1885 with the name of "the princess theatre" and changed to is actual name in 1931.
The piece was wonderful I loved it, shame it was not possible to take photos during the act, but I guess it's fare... If your in Madrid till the 19th of october I strogely recomend you to go and see it...

La Fura dels Baus on a conventional theater? I've never seen them performing on a standard stage...

The church on the previous post is awesome! Also like the red corner building on the right.

Beautiful theater - "Louis" should like to see this!

Regarding your comment about Jack London's cabin - that is one of the older surviving buildings on the west coast, but older still are the missions built by the Spanish priests. There is a chain of missions, each 1 day travel by horse apart, stretching from the border with Mexico to Sonoma north east of San Francisco.

OH yes, I think you made a lovely capture here. Diederick is right, the people add such interest. The red is a showstopper as well. (unintended pun!)
Thanks for showing us the inside. I appreciate you stopping by my blog so often. Thanks!

I adore going to the theater and I've had the pleasure of seeing performances in many grand old places. This is now on my list of places I must go in my lifetime. Such grandeur.
