Argentina and Spain celebrate Miguel de Unamuno’s literary works

The Embassy of Argentina, the Embassy of Spain and GALATheatre present a special evening to celebrate the Spanish writer and philosopher Miguel de Unamuno, a member of the Generation of '98, a literary group of Spanish intellectuals, many of whom were exiles in Buenos Aires. Miguel de Unamuno had great interest in the issues of Hispanic America, and his work influenced the contemporary Latin American literature, especially within the Argentine writers.

Acclaimed Argentine actor Horacio Peña, who plays the lead role of Unamuno in Irma Correa’s play “El viejo, el joven y el mar” (The Old Man, the Youth, and the Sea) at GALA Theatre, will give this presentation of excerpts of Unamuno’s most important poems and texts, along with cast members Delbis Cardona from Venezuela, Víctor de la Fuente and Luz Nicolás, both from Spain. This is the first time that Peña, awarded the María Guerrero, Trinidad Guevara and ACE prizes as Best Actor, will perform in the United States.

After this presentation, please join us for a conversation with the actors, followed by a toast.

This event is in Spanish only

Guests will receive a special code to get half off regular price tickets for any of the performances of “El viejo, el joven y el mar” at GALA, until March 3, 2019.
