The Peñíscola Classical Theater Festival will be held this year adapting to the “new reality of the coronavirus”. Despite the fact that it was initially planned to be held in early July, the management and the Castellón Provincial Council have decided to postpone it for two weeks, and have finally established the dates of the representations from July 17 to 31.


As usual, the castle of Papa Luna will be the epicenter of this festival, which this year reaches its 23rd edition. Through a statement, the deputy for Culture, Ruth Sanz, explained that all safety regulations will be followed and complied with, “both the official ones set by the health authorities and those we consider appropriate.”

The main measure is that attendance in attendance at the actions to be held in the parade ground will be reduced in order to respect social distancing measures.

This will not prevent any person who wishes to enjoy the performances “of the highest level companies in the State, since a web space will be enabled where they can follow all the interpretations online from anywhere in the world to supply the reduction of the capacity “.

Programming is currently being redefined due to the inability of some theater companies to attend on the new dates set by the organization and it is also evaluating how to adapt the works to new possibilities. “The forecast is that the billboard with all the performances will be announced in a matter of weeks,” reported Sanz.

“With the celebration of the festival, once the de-escalation process is finished, we want to give a great boost to culture in one of its purest forms. We are sure that, despite everything, the festival will help to move the local and provincial economy despite the difficult circumstances we are going through. “
