El caballero de Olmedo/The Knight from Olmedo By Lope de Vega
At: GALA Hispanic Theatre, Washington DC
Directed by José Luis Arellano García
Sep 16 - Oct 17, 2010
Thur-Sat 8 pm - Sun 3 pm
Ticket: Thur and Sun $32 Regular, $20 Students, Senior Citizens & Military- Frid and Sat $36 Regular, $26 Students, Senior citizens & Military.
Based on a popular folk tale about a young knight who is slain as he travels from Medina to Olmedo after a bullfight. In what has become a classic love story in Hispanic dramaturgy and a celebrated piece of the Spanish Golden Age, Lope explores themes of love, violence, honor and jealousy. Lope deviated from traditional tragicomedy where tragedy is averted to result in a happy ending, and created a masterpiece that evolves in a comedic manner, with dark undertones, and then moves to a tragic end. Driven by passion, the characters also discover the potential for violence that lurks within that intense emotion, and that ultimately destroys them.

Backlit digital painting
Roberto began his artistic endeavors in Patterson, California where at the early age of 5 he began painting and drawing. He drew inspiration from the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci rather than Disney cartoons. His fascination with art was as undeniable then as it is now. Roberto graduated from CSU Stanislaus in 1990 with a BA in Fine Arts. In 1994 he received his Master of Arts degree from CSU Sacramento. His widely exhibited work aims to question time and reality and explores the differences between understanding and belief.

Carolina Montejo (Bucaramanga, Colombia 1981) currently lives and works in Bogotá. Montejo was Born and raised in Colombia and has been exposed to a colorful equatorial landscape, her perspective on life has been reflective of such through symbolic images of dreamlike circumstances where color is both inspirational and necessary. Carolina intends to fabricate a compound metaphor, an image that rises from words and allows itself to be affected by color, object, meaning and emotion. With a background in communications,creative thinking, and photography she has been dedicated to visual arts for the past 3 years and has had exhibitions of her work in Austria, Indonesia, the United States, and Colombia.
