Abstract

MENTIDERO The twenty-second Golden Age Drama Festival was sponsored by the Chamizal National Memorial in El Paso, Texas, from February 28 through March 8,1997, and was applauded by multi-national audiences which usually filled the theatre to capacity for nine evenings. The performances demonstrated a uniform range of professionalism which was competent enough that all except the most demanding members of the audience were pleased with what they had seen. A very good innovation in the overall programming of the festival this year were the brief introductions to the playwrights for the sake of the majority of spectators who were unfamiliar with the tradition of the Golden Age theater. The introductions invariably involved the general audience in the work they were about to see and consequently held the newer spectators' attention to the very last scene. The group Crisol-Bufons from Chimayo, New Mexico, began the festival with two consecutive performances of a very free adaption of Tirso de Molina's La prudencia en la mujer which they entitled Rey y trovador. The strange irony of an artless queen impoverished by the greed of her courtiers who succeeds through awkward musical entertainments to win their respect -or perhaps it was their
