The main aim of this company is to recover, preserve, revise and spread pre-20th century Spanish theatre heritage, focusing especially on the Golden Age.

Founded in 1986 by Adolfo Marsillach, this theatre institution depends on the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music. It aims to be a reference for classical theatre in Spain, with its regular programme and with its tours, counting on important professionals. Sometimes it also turns to the repertoire of universal classics. Among some of their works, the theatre has put on plays by well-known authors such as Lope de Vega, Calderón de la Barca, Miguel de Cervantes and Tirso de Molina. It also aims to train young actors and to offer educational activities.

Since its creation, the National Classical Theatre Company has operated under various directors, such as Rafael Pérez Sierra, Andrés Amorós, José Luis Alonso de Santos or Eduardo Vasco. Its permanent headquarters is the Theatre of Comedy (closed for renovations), although it also has other headquarters in the Pavón Theatre (current temporary headquarters) and in the San Juan Hospital while the Almagro International Classical Theatre Festival is on.
