The well-known story of "Los tres cerditos" with a new ending. A good performance for children. They can interact by singing the songs and speaking to the actors. We went with two and half years-old children and they liked it a lot.

Having visited several other theatres, in Madrid, we booked for the tribute to Michael Jackson, "Forever", at this one. The theatre itself is a huge disappointment, being quite run-down and in desperate need of renovation, in places. Front of House was absolutely chaotic and even...More

Seeing VOCES, Sara Baras' show, a two-hour tribute to flamenco greats and the styles they contributed to the dance, was the highlight of my trip. The theater is small and intimate...steps away from Tirso de Molina metro stop. I was in the peanut gallery but...More

Have always had an interest in Flamenco, having seen a great documentary (Flamenco @ 5:15) and loving the dancing, the rhythms and music. Looked at the various tablaos in tripadvisor, and thought they seemed a bit touristy. Saw the huge posters advertising Sara Baras, in...More

Amazing perfomance! Dancers were very passionate, extremely lyrical and so perfectly graceful. Only downside was that we paid €60,00 each for very average seats. Theater was more like a cinema as they were selling snacks and beverages for us to consume during(!) the performance. On...More

one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
