After a wait of almost three years, La Tristura makes its triumphant return to the stage with the premier of its latest production ‘Cine’. The air of excitement outside the Sala Verde at Teatros del Canal last night was certainly to be expected given La Tristura’s reputation as one of Spain’s most exciting and innovative theatre companies of the last decade.

He didn’t want him to get his hopes up, and he reminded himself, in passing, that many had previously attempted similar ventures, without much success. They had to be realistic.
