Festival de Almagro: fundación - objetivos
  • Preserve, praise, promote and disseminate the theatrical heritage of the 16th and 17th centuries, from east to west, with special attention to the Spanish Golden Age.
  • Prepare, program, organize, manage and disseminate the Almagro International Festival of Classical Theatre.
  • Promote the Almagro International Festival of Classical Theatre throughout the year, at the national and international level.
  • Build new audiences interested in the performing arts through the dissemination of the Baroque heritage and its impact on contemporary culture: by being present and up-to-date on communication platforms related to new technologies, which undoubtedly set the course of relations between the audiences and culture, and more specifically between the Festival and its audience.
  • Create and organize cultural projects throughout the year always related to the transmission of the Baroque heritage.
  • Support, from a perspective of "soft power aesthetics", the removal of most of the barriers that restrict the access to culture by implementing actions aiming at making more accessible the venues as well as the theatre performances.
  • Encourage the interrelationship between different artistic disciplines and professionals from different fields, offering different performance formats and creating new forms of expression for the Baroque.
  • Strive for the excellence in all artistic proposals, supporting the professionalization of the theatre industry, by promoting emerging young professionals and by paying tribute to the most consecrated artists.
  • Strengthen cooperation and collaboration with other institutions and entities, enhancing private sponsorship as a support for the development of the performing arts.
