One of the main leisure and cultural arteries of the capital, Madrid's Gran Vía, has among its historic buildings the veteran Gran Vía Theater that shines and stands out thanks to its new lighting, supplied by Philips Lighting. As a result of an agreement between the Dutch company and Grupo Smedia, this mythical theater has been renamed Teatro de la Luz Philips Gran Vía, thus beginning a new stage.

The opening event was attended by Eduardo Mataix, General Director of Philips Alumbrado, who pointed out that one of the objectives is "to teach the world the latest technological innovations from Philips Alumbrado, in everything related to indoor lighting in theaters". He also stressed the importance "of private companies in doing patronage activities to strengthen cultural activities."

Built in 1944 under the name Teatro Gran Vía, this historic building with a capacity of 1,080 seats was equipped with imperial lamps from 1940 made of Bohemian glass. The low-consumption light from the lamps did not illuminate with the naturalness and majesty consistent with the structure of the theater. With the incorporation of Philips Lighting's LED technology, "we have once again recovered the essence and grandeur of those imperial lamps but, above all, we have once again recovered the cathedral space that the architect originally created for the public to enjoy. place where the oratory was celebrated through the stage ceremony", declared Enrique Salaberría, President of Grupo Smedia.

What has been achieved is to integrate the use of light in the show, in the emotional sphere of the spectator. "Light recreates emotions. And that world is the one that we want to convey so that the viewer experiences an emotional encounter before the curtain rises and finds himself immersed in that world through light", stated Salaberría. Other objectives achieved with the integration of Philips Lighting's LED technology are savings in energy consumption as well as technical safety for spectators, artists and employees, since with LED lighting the overload of the electrical network is avoided, thus preventing fires, blackouts or other hazards.

The Philips Lighting team has carried out the development of a unique project for a building with these characteristics, both in the field of energy efficiency and technology. The renovation of the theater offers cutting-edge and innovative solutions that the company has developed.

Lighting at the service of the performing arts

First of all, the façade has been equipped with architectural lighting through control systems. The horizontal part of the marquee, in which the name of the theater is read, has the iColor Accent solution, which allows the color change to adapt to different events in the theater itself or to special days, although it will normally maintain white light. It is controlled by KiNET, an Ethernet-based lighting control protocol. The control system is Pharos.

When entering the lobby, you can see two chandeliers whose luminaires are controlled by Philips HUE, a system based on the ZigBee protocol that allows you to control the light and create different specific environments for each room through an application for Smartphone or Tablet. On the mezzanine level that gives access to the amphitheater, the PETALO and HOPE lamps (luminaires from LUCEPLAN) have been placed.

In the auditorium, the lighting has been conceived to give more life and highlight the value of the performing arts, be it opera, theater, monologues or musicals. Luminous Textile stands out when entering with LightVibes, two large 5 by 2 meter textile panels placed on the walls of the stalls, next to the stage, and which are capable of performing light and color effects, according to the preselected scenes of the function. of the day or according to music and video projections at concerts and shows. For this, these textiles are connected to a software system that allows programming the desired lighting at all times.

In the central aisle, the Luminous Carpet solution has been installed, a carpet illuminated with LEDs, the first installed in the whole of Europe, which leads to the stage and indicates the rows of seats and displays messages in real time according to the show.

The Philips Gran Vía Light Theater will also have a Philips Lighting product showroom for the home, with access from the Gran Vía itself, where all passersby will be able to discover the possibilities of the different ranges offered by the company.

Opening to the rhythm of an opera

To celebrate the beginning of this new journey, the Lírico Festival Company, together with the Mediterranean Philharmonic Orchestra, performed on March 1 some fragments of Rigoletto at the entrance of the theater, allowing all passers-by to enjoy the opera in the middle of Gran Vía Precisely, this opera in three acts by Giusepe Verdi has been the work with which this new stage of the theater with Philips lighting has been inaugurated.

During this opening ceremony, the building's façade was illuminated for the first time with a completely renewed image thanks to Philips Lighting solutions that, in addition to being energy efficient, have given this classic theater a unique character, turning it into a new icon of Madrid's Gran Vía as a representative of the union of lighting with the performing arts.


Almagro Comedy Corral

Wednesday, March 2, 2016

The Corral de Comedias is located in the Plaza Mayor, declared a National Monument on March 4, 1995.

It maintains the original structure of the Corrales de Comedias from the seventeenth century, today, the only example of theater fully preserved in the world of those corresponding to this type of theater; that occurred so much in seventeenth century Spain. Due to its popularity since 1977, the Almagro International Classical Theater Festival is held

Since 1955, Theater in the Corral de Comedias

Since 1955, Theater in the Corral de Comedias

On May 27, 1955, at the initiative of Jacinto Higueras Cátedra, director of the Spanish University Theater, the theatrical activity returned to this Corral de Comedias with the representation of two hors d'oeuvres by Miguel de Cervantes, "The careful guard" and "The altarpiece of las maravillas ", by the Spanish University Theater company that he directs. In view of the great success they obtain with Cervantes's hors d'oeuvres, a continuous theatrical activity will begin from then on in this Corral de Comedias de Almagro.

Structure of the Corral de Comedias.

It is a patio surrounded by 54 straight feet of reddish-colored wood (reddish clay that gives the town of Almagro its name). These rest on stone bases to protect them from moisture.

It has two floors with rooms and hooks to place the awning that protected the spectators in the hours of sun; as well as those of candles or oil lamps. In the courtyard there is a well located at the entrance where the lodge should have been to provide refreshments to the spectators.

Structure of the Corral de Comedias

Between the door to the street and the patio there is a paved hallway, as is the entire floor, with small pebbles, the one of the hallway shining the Cruz de Calatrava. In it he had installed an inn that worked regularly, whether or not there was a representation. In its left part there was a fire from La Mancha and in one of its pajeras appeared the deck dated 1725. From it a wooden gate was opened that communicated directly with the patio.

On the two sides they were occupied by merchants, soldiers, officials, people of a higher social level than in the rest of the patio that could only be occupied by common people and which would be called Patio de los Musketeros. "... they come together with their cape, sword and dagger and all are called knights, even the shoemakers, and these are the ones who decide whether the comedy is good or bad; and because they whistle or applaud it, they are called Musketeers , so that the fame and opinion of these poets depends on them ... "

The private rooms were located on the sides of the stage and were rented only to noble families, for a specified period of time. The dense lattices allowed to see without being seen. They had independent accesses from the rest of the building to maintain the anonymity of its occupants.

The stage, the place where it was performed, is located in the opposite part of the entrance and behind are the dressing rooms. The back wall has in its upper part a corridor with three balconies with railing that look out onto the scene, and on the right side the access door to the comedians. Under the floor is the moat, where the company was staying with all their belongings.

The casserole was the place from which the women watched the performance. This was required by the strict morality of that time. It was located opposite the stage, on the first floor of the building. The entrances were independent of the patio and corridors, and communicated with the entrance by means of one or more stairs. The corridor above the casserole was usually occupied by institutions, both civil and ecclesiastical.

The side corridors were between the casserole and the private chambers. They were divided into rooms that were rented to families. They are the antecedents of the box.

Lower part of the stage. Former Dressing Rooms of Knights

FETEN 2016

Thursday, February 18, 2016


From February 21 to 26, the 25th anniversary of the European Fair of Performing Arts for Boys and Girls, FETEN, is celebrated.

During the last days of the month, actors and artists from around the world occupy the city of Gijón to show their ideas, their projects and their shows filling the streets and theaters of cultural creation and scenic animation.

Companies from Finland, Argentina, Ireland, France, Holland, Chile, etc. They have presented their proposals in Gijón based on the theatrical language of gestures, mimes, music, movement and choreography, through resources that go beyond different languages.

But what is FETEN?


The European Fair of Performing Arts for Boys and Girls, FETEN, is a space that promotes exchanges and cooperation between the different sectors of creation and distribution of the performing arts.

The importance and the enhancement acquired by the Theater for children in Spain and in practically all of Europe, raises the need for a place or space where to combine, exchange, share and enable interests, experiences, knowledge and direct links between programmers , companies and professionals in the environment; trying together to elevate and dignify an ever greater quality of the performing arts made for and by minors.

In all FETEN editions a fundamental structure is maintained. That is to say, a Fair nature, which brings together programmers, distributors ... from our country and Europe, with what this means to strengthen the market; but also, the exhibition of shows, discussion forums, book presentations, exhibitions, etc., which contribute to enhance and enrich everything that has to do with this aspect of culture.

Since the first edition, in 1991, and within its programming, a series of debates and meetings have been held with the firm intention of combining the educational fact with the theatrical, since the theater is a fundamental channel of expression and communication between the individual, society and culture. Proposals from leading specialists in the field of children's and youth theater from different points of view, contribute to making these debates a dynamic forum for approaching the problem of the theatrical event aimed at children and adolescents.

All this leads to FETEN having, not only the market aspect (exhibition of theatrical proposals and their hiring by promoters and programmers), but also a permanent and continuous debate framework.
