It is a cultural foundation that covers both theatrical creation and staging. Its aim is to form part of social and cultural life through the poetry of the stage.

It is dedicated to both the study of theatre and to its staging and bases its work on passion for the word and psycho-physical balance.

It has two venues: the old Sagrada Familia church and its annexe, known as the Sala Juan de la Cruz and Sala José Luis Alonso. And since 2005, the Teatro de la Abadía Foundation has also taken care of the management and programming of the Corral de Comedias theatre in Alcalá de Henares from September to June. The programme includes classical and contemporary theatre, ancient, ethnic and jazz music, dance and flamenco, song and poetry.
