The 53rd Nerja Caves Festival was brought to a close last night with the perfomance by the Comediants of ‘Persephone in the Cave’, which was premiered last summer in Moscow.

According to Greek mythology Persephone is the Queen of the underworld, making the Nerja Caves the ideal setting for this performance. The result was a grand theatrical spectacle where the public were invited to reflect on the fragility of humans, mere instruments of their own weakness, with their lack of acceptance of death, greed, desires and lies.

The Comediants, formed in 1971 in Barcelona, is one of the world’s most prestigious companies in terms of its spectacular productions, they have played in every continent, from Buenos Aires to Tokyo, via New York, Madrid and Paris, including the production of large events, from the closing ceremony of the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the 1992 Seville Expo, the Expo Lisboa’98, Hanover’00 Expo, and Barcelona’04 Forum. Their shows are known for their great festive spirit and inspired by myths, symbols, rituals and ceremonies that celebrate the cycle of humans on Earth. The stage manager is, since its inception, Joan Font.
