Performing arts

Words, voice and movement. Stage performance has been and still is a fundamental part of the expression of the country and its people. Oral expression was extremely important during the Middle Ages for the transmission of narrative, stories and even the liturgy itself. This tradition began with the religious plays of the Middle Ages and culminated in its period of maximum splendour in the Spanish Golden Age, when popular theatre houses staged works by playwrights such as Lope de Vega and Calderón de la Barca, among numerous others. In contrast, the tradition of dance and classical ballet arose from the Court, and these artistic expressions have over time become one of the cornerstones of Spanish modernity.
