In the photograph, there’s a curtain painted by Le贸nidas Galicia in 1903, displayed at the Teatro Calder贸n -Calder贸n Theather- in Valladolid. It depicts a scene from 芦El Alcalde de Zalamea禄 in commemoration of the theater’s inaugural performance.

The Teatro Calder贸n is one of the most significant historical buildings in Valladolid, with a rich history. It was inaugurated on September 29, 1864, with a performance of 芦El Alcalde de Zalamea.禄

During that time, Valladolid was experiencing economic prosperity, with the emergence of new businesses and a growing affluent bourgeoisie eager to enrich their social lives. The theater and attending theatrical performances perfectly fulfilled this role. Hence, there was a determination to establish a society that would promote its construction and address the many challenges encountered along the way. Currently, the theater serves as the main venue for the renowned Valladolid International Film Week, SEMINCI.
