Regarding Hamlet,
I have a recording of the radio program "This American Life" in which they talk about a representation of Hamlet done by prisoners of a jail in the USA.

It is a very touching program, with a great story. They talk also about the meaning of the play, with some curious interpretations.

It is 1 hour long, and sometimes not very easy to understand, but I believe it is worth the effort.

If you want to download it, go to www.badongo.com, and enter with user thewomaninwhite and password white1

This is the account we share for the class in 5-B. You may upload more files if you want.

Regarding the previous comment.
I forgot to say that the filename is TAL218_ActV.mp3.

The title of the program is Act V.

Sorry for the confusion it may have produced.

Elena Gil - 5B dijo...

It sounds really interesting! I will download it, thanks JM!

maría 5ºB dijo...

maría 5ºB dijo...

I prefer to go to see the play on tuesday, 9th December. But I want to go with you!

Natalia dijo...

Me, I'll try to go also the 9th December!

marta dijo...

IMPORTANT: There are no tickets for the 9th or the 19th, only for the 23rd, sorry but the play is very popular and as the theatre didn´t send us the information we didn´t do it on time.
We are going to get the tickets on Monday,Tuesday, so decide quickly if you want to go.

marta dijo...

We are sold out NO TICKETS, we hope you´ll enjoy it and post many comments

maría 5ºB dijo...

Hi mates! I´m going the 19th. Who is going the same day??

Alessandro 5º b dijo...

Dear Maria 5ºb, unfortunately I am not going to Hamlet the 19 but the 23, so I will not be able to comment the "Two beers or not two beers" with you. So who is going on 23?

maría 5ºB dijo...

ahahaah, I´ll miss our usual Ham-out-let

silvia ruiz 5ºb dijo...

I would like to go on the 23rd,but till I go to class next wednesday I won´t know if there are any tickets left.I´m afraid Marta said they´re all sold out.

s dijo...

Dont worry Maria, there will be plenty occasions in the future,you are not still safe :-)
Silvia: it seems that there are still enough tickets for the 23rd.

Alessandro 5º b dijo...

The previous post was mine.

Natalia dijo...

Just a piece of advice!
Yesterday Elena and me went to see a theatre play called "Hoy se ensaya Hamlet" performed by a young company:"La joven compañia de la Fundación Shakespeare"...I wont say anything about it cause I don't want to reveal the plot...but sincerely is amazing!!
Go to see it!

maría 5ºB dijo...

thanks for your advise nataly! I´ll go. Does anyone want to go with me??

Elena Gil - 5B dijo...

Hi! Yes Natalia, it was very interesting a play! Different from every other play I've seen indeed. I also wrote something about it in the Reading club (in the Hamlet monologue thread).

Rebeca 4ºB dijo...

Natalia, could you ggive me more information abut this play? I think know, it is performed at Retiro´s park, and I´d like going to see it.
Thank you.

Rebeca 4ºB dijo...

Natalia, could you ggive me more information abut this play? I think know, it is performed at Retiro´s park, and I´d like going to see it.
Thank you.

Natalia dijo...

Hi Rebeca,
I'm not sure what do you want to know exactly about the play...
You'll enjoy differents scenes from Hamlet, to summarize you'll see a rehearsal directed and explained by the stage manager.
Enjoy it!

maría 5ºB dijo...

I´m going to see the play on Saturday, the 20th. It costs 4 euros. There are tickets at Atrapalo.

Rebeca 4º B dijo...

Thanks both Natalia and Maria for replaying me. I´ll look for the ticktes at this webpage, and after seeing it, I´ll tell you what it has showed me.

marta dijo...

Yesterday we went to see Hamlet and my God what disappointment. I thought that Botto was going to make a better Hamlet than Coronado, who was finally the King, but what a mistake!!! You could hear his Argentinian accent sometimes, he made a violent Hamlet. Hamlet is called the unhappy Prince it is true he killed people but he was not bloody or violent as this one. He makes it up with Laertes and there was no such thing here, he dies in peace to a certain extent, but not this one. He did say the main speeches but in a way that devalued all of them.
The rest of the actors were equally bad, Ophelia was terrible and the Queen no better, the scene with the Queen lying back in her couch with Hamlet in the position of a lover distinctly lying between her legs ready to rape her was horrible!
Coronado not worth mentioning, Laertes, Polonius, all all terrible.
The only thing that was a little better was the staging but not fantastic either.
I´m sorry but it´s the worst Hamlet I´ve seen so be prepared for something BAD, however some of the students that went liked it.
I´m dying to know why. So let´s see if they post comments.

jaime dijo...

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the play Hamlet. Although I already knew the plot, this has been my first Hamlet. I knew of the interest and emotion of the story but watching at the theatre one can enjoy it more. The acting in general was pretty good, particularly I liked playing Claudio Jose Coronado very much. As for Hamlet, I didn’t like him very much. His intonation and gestures, made him look completely mad. Besides, I was disappointed by the to be or not to be speech, I expected it better. Even so, the overall performance was great.

maría 5ºB dijo...

After reading your post, Marta, I don´t want to go!! Though, actually, I expected nothing good, above all, because of Coronado. It´s like when we saw the play where Constantino Romero was acting (I don´t remember the play, a classic one, with Emma Suárez, it was three years ago that we saw it!, do you remember?). Well, I couldn´t help thinking of "Colchones Lo Mónaco". And the 19th I will be thinking of "Activus Bífidus".
Two years ago I saw Hamlet, which was performed by Teleco´s students. I liked it very very much indeed. In Spain, plays are better performed by unknown actors than well-known ones. I don´t know where our famous actors have obtained their supposed reputation (Nuria Espert, Marisa Paredes and and on and on and on).
At least, it is a handsome Hamlet, isn´t it?

marta dijo...

Jaime a very well-written comment though I disagree with your criticism of the play, Claudius might have been better than Hamlet, that is so, but I didn´t like it, it was bad and I agree with you Botto was horrible he was the director too so that is why.
María it is a hansome Hamlet that he is, the only thing, I´m sorry to say, though some students seem to like it.
I agree with you where are the good Spanish actors, the amateurs are better! That is the sad thing they don´t act at all well, maybe I´m a very strict critic, I´ve read that some critic finds Ophelia good, well I found her the contrary specially the movement of her hands who moves their hands like that?? I´ve never anybody doing it. So maybe it is just me but you´ll judge for yourself. The play is always worth it, though I agree with Jaime that he destroyed the "to be or not to be" as well as the others

maría 5ºB dijo...

I´ve read that "Hoy se ensaya Hamlet", which was recommended by Natalia and Elena, is very good. It may be a good practice to see both plays in order to compare them. I´m going to see it the following day we go to Hamlet by Botto. Would some of you want to do the same?

silvia ruiz 5ºb dijo...

I,m sorry to read those bad predictions about the play.We´ll see!!
It might be a good trainning to see what Maria said,"Hoy se ensaya Hamlet".
Where is it?

marta dijo...

I´m looking forward to reading your comments and see how you like the play!

maría 5B dijo...

It is at La Casa de las Vacas (Retiro). Silvia, if you want, we can go together. Tell me something soon and I´ll do the reservation.

Anónimo dijo...

Hi all,

I have a Ticket for Hamlet left. It is for the 20 th of December at 8.30 p.m.I bought it myself and the price was 17 €, so now I sell it for 12 €.

Contact me 625677821, thanks!

Natalia(5ºB)

Carmen dijo...

Well, I´m already disappointed in spite of Jaime´s very positive review. By the way, Jaime, I´m glad that at last you have found something to elicit an opinion about,and in a very decisive manner... you haven´t done such a thing in Jane Eyre so far!!! keep going

SILVIA RUIZ 5ºB dijo...

Hi Maria, of course I´ll go with you!and also a friend of me would like to. Would you get the tickets for us so that the three of us are seated together?
For the 20th is OK?
See you on Monday,the 15th and I´ll give you the money.

maría 5ºB dijo...

Ok, Silvia, you have not to give me the money, because I am only doing the reservations, without paying. see you tomorrow

Rebeca 4ºB dijo...

Hello.
I´m not sure if this comment could be written here, but I haven´t found a better place in the blog to post it, so forgive me if I´m wrong.

Have you ever seen a school play in English?I haven´t seen one jet, but I hope to be able to do it next Friday. It is about a re-mix Shakespeare´s plays, and its characters are Secondary School´s pupils. It will be done in English language and in Spanish ones too.

I will tell you how it was next week.

We can never forgetthat theatre is sometimes nearer to us than we thought at first.

maría 5ºB dijo...

Silvia, I´ve already got the tickets.
Rebeca, it sounds really well. Tell us afterwards how you liked it!

marta dijo...

Rebeca that is really good you must film it and bring it to class so that we can have a look!

María 5ºB dijo...

Despite Marta comments and our placing at the top gallery in extremely hot, I had some hope. However, Hamlet didn´t live up to our expectations. Therefore I corroborate all that Marta said: Argentinian accent, Botto´s high-handedness, haughtiness, whereas Hamlet is the embodiment of doubt; awful Ophelia, Laertes, King... It was the Queen that I liked the most, though her performance was also vague, but how could it be in another way having such actors around?. Even I´d add the bad adaptation, cutting important extracts and ruining it (like Polonius´ advises). A total disappointment. Spanish actors are becoming experts to ruin masterpieces... The exception: male characters of King Lear we saw last year.
Let´s see Hoy se ensaya Hamlet...

marta dijo...

I´m sad and glad that you agree with me María. Sad because the play was bad and glad because we are of an opinion and that shows we have understanding. You have said it very well Spanish actors are becoming experts in the art of ruining good plays! In a fortnight they haven´t improved and that is also a pity. They could have changed a bit but no. The problem is that the reviews they get are probably good and then there is no room for improvement as they think they do it well. Yes, they are stupid, how can they think so? For start one wonders if they have read the play. They could have also read some criticism on it that helps. But no, they are too big-headed for that. Let´s see what the others say I suppose something similar

SILVIA RUIZ 5ºB dijo...

Rebbeca I´ve also seen an english school theatre play," Cinderella", actors and actresses were students and teachers. It turned up to be very interesting.
Concerning yesterdays´ play I was really unconfortable on the upper floor I thought I would faint for it was extremely hot.
I didn´t like Hamlet´s( Botto) intonation.But what I liked least is the scene when Polonio was killed by Hamlet,he and his mother continued talking about themselves as if nothing could disturb their speech.
And what about their kiss? Did we see it? Because it went nearly unnoticed.No explanations around it!

SILVIA RUIZ 5ºB dijo...

This evening I went to see another Hamlet play,"Hoy se ensaya Hamlet".It, receiving less aid and relevance becomes a very different version from the one we saw yesterday.Much more active and explanatory in my opinion.
The director acquires a special significance because as he tells during his introduction to the play,he explains scene by scene.That means he makes the plot clear to the audience.He also offers several possibilities of Hamlet´s character and traits.Sometimes Hamlet appears as a resentful young,others as a madman,distraught about the lost of his father and her mother´s betrayal;or full of rage against all around him.Ophelia vexes him,because of her giving in to Polonio´s(her father)threats.
Her mother makes him confused with her lecherous attitude to the new king,and ungrateful to his father.
To summarize,I think nowadays we would say that all these circumstances drove him to suffer a mental disorder,with extreme changes in his personality.

marta dijo...

Silvia a very good comment with good vocabulary use, of course anything is better than what we saw! It is a pity

maría 5ºB dijo...

"Hoy se ensaya Hamlet" is the play we all should have seen instead of Botto´s shit (excuse the word, but I think is the more descriptive).
We are victims of commercial theater, which is normally seen by undemanding people. Not only do they accept any shit, but also value it and call it "work of art" or "masterly performance". Even they dare to transmit their nonsense to the actors themselves who tend to believe them and make their job worse time and time again, if possible.
Yesterday we saw a very good and credible performance of great future young actors (specially two or three), directed by a man who understands Hamlet in a peculiar, interesting, convincing way. A didactic play which made the spectator be moved.

marta dijo...

María that´s a very good review, pity it´s not on a paper. I agree with you the actors believe that they are doing a great work of art!!
Can´t we go next term to the one you saw? Is it on in January or February?

maría 5ºB dijo...

Thanks Marta, you are always so nice! In theory saturday´s it was the last performance. But it may be remade next months. I´ll look for the information.
I am nervous! Soria is having a lot of winners at Lotery!! Will I have luck?????

maría 5ºB dijo...

No, I won´t :(

marta dijo...

Have you won???? I hope so, it must be the greatest feeling. No we are in Santander and won´t be back until the 7th

maría 5ºB dijo...

No, I haven´t!! But some friends of mine now they are millonaires!! I´ll have to continue working... ;)

SILVIA RUIZ 5ºB dijo...

Thanks Marta for your comment,it provides an incentive.
This young theatre company is called "La joven compañía de la fundación Shakespeare",directed by Manuel Ángel Conejero, I think we should follow their trail.In fact they will continue in january with this play(rehearsal)fridays and saturdays at 07:00pm ,Teatro del Parque Casa de vacas(parque del retiro).Their e-mail;f.shakespeare.e@gmail.com

Enjoy your holidays!!!

Carmen dijo...

Well done, María and Silvia with your comments, very good mature ones from a linguistical point of view; no wonder the rest of your mates daren´t write in the blog, I would also feel put out.
I did not like botto, he may be attractive, for some women, and Bardem-like acting (both on and off stage), but quite honestly, he should leave Shaespeare alone. Shakespeare is NOT for pseudo-actors!!!! it just did not come off: the translation poor, no majesty, the acting unreal, they didi not transmit, they did not make I thrill, for instance was Hamlet in love with Ophelia or did he hate her? I´m not sure!!!! Silvia, you mention the pathetic kiss of the Queen to Hamlet? In Spanish theatre we seem to have the idea that provocation is wonderful and what best than to have a mother kiss her son? incest? Well they were not successful, if that is what they intended, on the contrary it looked as some patched up scene to shock the audience and look modern. Hamlet has a strange relationship with his mother and sometimes it has been said by critics that he could have been in love with her but if you read the text, you see that his is a feeling of hatred, he is angry because he considers her a whore a lascivious woman only capable of lust with her new husband and this annoys him for two reasons: one, because he dislikes this sexual turn in her mother, and two because he thinks her treacherous to memory of his late father and her late husband. I don´t think shortening the play helps either and the fact that our seats were in the upper-circle did not contribute either, thank God I had brought my fan along!!!
the best came after the play...
Read it in Spanish during the hols!!
P.S. María I´ve been thinking about you yesterday and wondering whthter you were a millionaire...never mind, you know "When the gods want to punish Men they grant them their wishes.." Can´t remember who said it!!
I was very disappointed

Paloma dijo...

I’ve had my computer broken and as a result I’ve not been able to write my review till now, but I’m very interested in doing it since my opinion is different from yours.
First of all I think the crucial factor was the place I was seated in: In the first row and in the right side, where most of the play is taken place. I could see the actor’s expression and, I think this was an important factor because several of them are actors formed mainly in the film world. When an actor belongs to the theatre, he uses his utterance to communicate with the members of the audience. But actors coming from the cinema use their expression in addition to their voice. This was what happened with Diego Boto. I could see his face and I was able to appreciate a wider range of feelings, which his voice didn’t express.
Another point is that the previous day I saw Kenneth Branagh’s version, in English and with subtitles. I hadn’t understood well some extracts and the Spanish version was a perfect complement to apprehend them .
I didn’t like Jose Coronado and not because his performance was worse than the rest but because of my age. I make myself clear: when I was young, he was our “George Clooney”. He was considered as a very handsome man and was more famous for being attractive than for being good actor. What I saw was a huge head with a little body attached to it. So big was my disappointment that it was impossible for me to appreciate his work as an actor. Goodness me, what an ugly man!
I didn’t like Laertes either, I found him too much sniveling. And for he and Hamlet fighting, they could have studied a bit the positions of the body, they were ridiculous, (before the play I’d been in a fencing meeting, the comparison was terrible)
My son Miguel came with me to see the play, he thinks Hamlet was overacted and too much cynic for his taste.
Sorry Maria, I thought you’d win the lottery!
Carmen is right, after reading your analyses I hardly dare to write! I have no words to congratulate you!!.

maría 5ºB dijo...

Carmen, I like the sentence very much! Though I would have liked to be a little bit punished by gods... ;)
It was curious that the kiss between Hamlet and his mother was performed at the same way in "Hoy se ensaya...", but it was much more understandable, don´t you think Silvia?
Hamlet, as a masterpiece that it is, can be understood in many ways, you can see many peculiarities, even many personalities if you want. It depends on whether the director is a clever studious person able to put it into practice. The good thing in "Hoy se ensaya..." is that you can share director´s interpretation or not, but what it is shown is justified. The acting is what makes this interpretation be credible.
Paloma, I see your point, but in this case, I don´t think it depends on the place we were seated.

Paloma dijo...

Maria probably you are right, I’ve already said Miguel was seated by me and he didn’t like the play, but, for me, my seat was an advantage, I didn’t see the public, only the actors, and concentrate was very easy. I also could see lit their eyes up and so I managed to get involved in the plot and was a bit less conscious of the acting. In this case the mastery of Shakespeare, even maltreated by the text, was, for me, more powerful than the acting, and, in spite of everything, I enjoyed the play.

marta dijo...

Paloma, you´ve written a very good comment and you prove your point which is good, but I´m afraid I still don´t and can´t agree with you. One thing is the cinema and another the theatre. If Boto is on the stage he has to act as if he were there and not in a film, his performance was horrible, he is the worst Hamlet I´ve seen and there is no excuse for that. Bot if you can´t do it don´t, we are not stupid so don´t treat us as if we were.
María I´m sure a kiss is ok, but how about the quasi intercourse that Hamlet has with his mother when he is presented lying between her legs on her bed?? I think that was too much, don´t you?
MERRY XMAS EVERYBODY!

Roberto dijo...

After watching the play I could not help feeling disappointed and asked myself whether it was because either of the text or the performance and answer came in a sudden: yes it was the latter indeed.

You must be quite good so as to dare play such a text and Juan Diego Boto fails in trying it, “to be or not to be” speech being the best instance. Too sarcastic and too brave was his performance.

Juan Diego, go back to films!


NOTE: I beg your pardon, for I have not read your commments yet.

maría 5ºB dijo...

Yes, I agree. For sure Botto thinks Hamlet was in love with his mother, as Carmen says, and that scene was too much!! It was out of question!! The queen seemed to be crazy and sexually deviant. On the contrary, in "Hoy se ensaya...", there being kiss, the scene was totally different. It seemed like if the queen begged Hamlet´s pardon, close to the regret, Hamlet being so much angry and mistreating her in a violent way.
Is there kiss in films? I can´t remember it.

Paloma dijo...

As Marta says:
MERRY XMAS EVERYBODY!
Enjoy today, tomorrow we will speak about Hamlet or anybody else.

marta dijo...

I´ve been told that those who went to the performance on the 23rd saw Penélope and Bardem at the theatre, she pretty but small he...

Lidia 5º C dijo...

Yesterday I went to see Hamlet. The Botto's acting was terrible, and his voice, my God!, who can imagine Hamlet with this tone of voice?

marta dijo...

You are right the surprise is that some critics say it is good none of us liked it I wonder at those critics

Carmen dijo...

I bet you Penelope and Barden liked it!!!

Alessandro 5º B dijo...

To write or no to write, to post or not to post, this was my question after my almost lonely sacrifice of attending Hamlet performance the 23. I was not lucky enough neither to see Pe&Javi, nor to meet some classmates to “beers or not two beers”. After reading all the previous posts on the blog, I have very little to add. From my point of view, Juan Diego Botto “botó”, I mean threw away, the occasion every actor in the world waits to recite Hamlet’s monologue. I managed to be awake most of the play to be able to listen at it, but at that point I was already frightened and prepared to listen, “to be or not to beee, che, that is the queeestion”. If he has been living in Spain from the age of four, why he insists in showing here and there an Argentinean accent? Hamlet “kiss between the legs” of her mother: I am trying to imagine what would do J.D.Botto if he ever manages to perform Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex. Explicit sex on stage? I would have been more satisfied if he presented this performance as “a freely inspired play along a the plot of a tragedy of a seventeen century gentleman named W. Shakespeare, with no attempt to be a reliable rendition of his original intentions”. I had welcomed it as a more earnest proposition than selling it as a true rendition of Hamlet.
Paloma: Any performer (should it be an actor, a musician, an orator) should think in all her/his audience. This topic was widely discussed by the late Glenn Gould, a Canadian pianist that was concerned in the difference of perception of each of the listeners in a particular concert-room. He thought that his rendition of a Sonata would be perceived in a different way by the clergyman sitting at the left in the third row, and by the hippy at the right of the last row. Was it a different sonata? His conclusion was that if his performance was excellent, it would be the same sonata perceived in a different way but excellent for both, if it was poor it would be different but poor for both.

Carmen dijo...

A very sensible and well thought out post. Well done Alessandro, you´ve expressed it very clearly and I´m glad that you agree with me where accent is concerned!!!! The bit about Mr. Gould is so true, Mr. Botto´s performance is...bad, let´s face it he is not a good actor.

maría 5ºB dijo...

Alessandro, very good! I totaly agree with you!!

Soria in La 2!!! Watch it now!!

Alessandro 5º B dijo...

Carmen, I am glad I was able to express myself on this topic. I think we agree in more things that my language limitations may show. I would like to discuss a little on this topic: why somebody that is not a good actor is in great demand and become a so well known? I think we cannot limit the answer to his/her appearance, he /she is handsome so everybody fall in love. I think that they usually are found to act in one or more characters in which they fit perfectly, for instance J.D.Botto did a good job in Historias del Kronen or Martin H. He was almost himself! Then they ask him to character somebody different and he fails. For me an actor deserves to be called an actor when he can be credible in different papers, and you do not remember continuously her/his others characterizations. For instance, Marlon Brando can be The Wild One, Kowalski, Marc Anthony, the God Father, Kal El, Don Juan De Marco therapist, Zapata, Paul in the last tango, Torquemada. He is never Brando, is the character. On the other side, I think in John Wayne. From his beginnings, young and handsome, to the last movies, sober and dry, he is always John Wayne cow boy, John Wayne soldier, John Wayne father, John Wayne son, John Wayne brother, John Wayne lover, John Wayne policeman, John Wayne politician, John Wayne John Wayne. In comedians this can be more acceptable, but not in drama. Woody Allen uses to be always Woody Allen, but he also did Zelig, in which he makes so different people in a kaleidoscopic way.

Hermy y Jaime dijo...

Hamlet es, sin duda, una de las mejores piezas teatrales salidas del cerebro privilegiado de Shakespeare. Escrita y representada por vez primera entre 1599 y 1601, iniciando así el llamado período trágico del autor, junto a Julio César, Otelo, El Rey Lear y Macbeth.
La dramaturgia de Borja Ortiz de Gongra y Juan Diego Botto, está realizada sobre la traducción que en 1798 hiciera Leandro Fernández de Moratín que nos dejó un texto ágil, entendible en cualquier época. Yo disfruté durante toda la representación escuchando atento lo que los personajes del drama nos iban desvelando por boca de los actores.
El montaje y dirección de Juan Diego Botto me pareció estupendo: un escenario vacío donde lo único que importa son los actores y el texto. Las incursiones al patio de butacas y a algún palco; bien, vistoso, si no fuera porque desde arriba no se veía nada de la acción, pero eso sí, se oía perfectamente el diálogo.
La interpretación, en general, me gustó, todos interpretaron su papel con soltura y bien hacer. Una sola pega a los dos actores principales: Tanto Juan Diego Botto como José Coronado cuando chillaban se les descolocaba algo la voz lo que, a mi parecer, perdía naturalidad. ¡Ah!, otra cosa, el famoso monólogo “Ser o no ser” pasó un poco desapercibido. Quizá debiera haber matizado más. Marta Etura, en el personaje de Ofelia, estupenda. Supo imprimir a su voz la ternura, el amor, la rabia, la locura, que en cada momento requería el personaje.
En resumen, dos horas con Shakespeare que me supieron a poco.

Pilar 4A dijo...

I´ve reading your comments on the blog and I feel that your English is very good. I´ll try to do my best. Furthermore, I didn´t have the chance of going to the Theater often so my critical sense in this issue needs a lot of develop. This is my first year living in Madrid, where you have the opportunity to choose what kind of Theater you want to see, not like in the provinces where you only can see what cultural authorities choose for you.
I´ll tell you my opinion about HAMLET directed by Juan Diego Botto. I think he is a good cinema actor and we had huge expectatives about him like director and principal character at the same time. I can imagine the hardness of this challenge for him. Maybe the result is not what we had expected because I felt during the play how he directed the actors while he was acting himself. To make a good production I would advice to separate the direction from the representation.
On the other side I would like to say that the stage was very well done. Technical experts on illumination and sound had made a very good job. With a simple cloth they changed the wall through the illumination from the inside to the outside part of the castle. And furthermore, the sounds of wind when actors where outside and the smoke in the sense of cold made me feel like taking part in the play.
Maria, it is a pity you are not millionaire. I came also from Soria (San Esteban de Gormaz) and I have some friends whose parents have won the third price. We have had lots of celebrations during these days with them, but in my family we continue as poor as before. Good luck for the Child Lottery on next January the 5th.

I wish you the best for the New Year!!!!!

María dijo...

Another Sorian person! We are everywhere! You are right Pilar, provintial culture is very limited (at least in Soria). However, though there are few things to see, people don´t go!!! The most of people is not interested in culture activities, they prefer having drinks or practicing sports. But then, it is they that complain about short culture possibilities. How annoying people!
I have not bought any lottery ticket and I am not willing to do it, so I´m afraid I´ll continue being a poor and honourable girl. ;) I wish you good luck!

marta dijo...

Pilar, good for you, you are very right that Madrid is a good opportunity for culture and that they often don´t realise how lucky they are.
development, not develop. on the other hand, not side. while he himself was acting, is better. had done a very good job. when actors were outside.
Pilar I´m sorry that neither María nor you a millionaires!!! What a pity it would be great somenoe who has had that luck, but we never win nor know anyone who has, I wonder where the millionaires are!
Pilar except for the mistakes your comment is quite good. And you saw something good in the play which in my opinion was quite difficult!!

María dijo...

January the 11th is the last session of Auto de los Reyes Magos. Everybody I´ve asked has liked it. I´d like to go to see it. Does some of you want to go with me?? It costs 20 euros.
Finally, I´ve bought lottery... ;)
