La Celestina by Compañía Nacional de Teatro (México)

One further stage adaptaion of Celestina is to be found on-line: Rosenda Montero’s and Ruby Tagle’s version for the Compañía Nacional de Teatro (México).

I really appreciate that theatre companies have started recording and uploading their performances of Celestina to Youtube or a similar platform. Not only does it give people the chance to watch adaptations that are not staged in their area, but it gives a good idea of how alive Celestina is.
