The official programme of the XXI Festival Celestina, to take place in La Puebla de Montalbán from the 17th to the 25th of August of 2019, is out. It can be consulted at the festival’s brand new official website, in which tickets can also be bought in advance.
Besides the usual activities (concerts, theatre, performances…), the event of greatest celestinesque interest is the lecture Joseph T. Snow will be giving on Friday the 23rd of August, at 20:30 at the Public Library of La Puebla de Montalbán. There are no details on what he will be talking about, but for sure it will be interesting.

The City Council of La Puebla de Montalbán has been an early bird this year, and the official programme for the XX Festival Celestina is already available on-line. This being the 20th anniversary of the festival, the City Council has scheduled a major event for the opening of the festival, with a show starring, among others, the actress Charo López, who toured with the show Ojos de agua, based on Celestina, some years ago.
This year’s conference has been trusted to Pedro Velasco Ramos once more, who held the talk “Fernando de Rojas, autor de La Celestina” in 2017 and, in 2018, will be talking about “La mujer en la Celestina” (23rd August, 21:00, Museo La Celestina). There will be the customary theatre plays, concerts and shows as well.
As usual, I will not be attending the festival, so that I invite anyone attending it to tell us about it via e-mail or via Twitter.
