Off World Productions bring their exciting new production of a choice selection of ’Interludes’ by Miguel Cervantes including ‘The Magic Cave of Salamanca.

Best known and loved for Don Quixote, the ground-breaking comic precursor of the modern novel, Cervantes led an extraordinary life every bit as colourful as his works. Born the son of a poor medical practitioner, maimed by gunshot as a soldier, held to ransom by Algerian corsairs, and eventually drifting into a literary career, Cervantes could draw upon a range of experience with which to spice up his writings.

Written as diversionary pieces to be performed between the main acts of a play, Cervantes’s interludes are comic gems in their own right. As a genre, ‘interludes’ were generally disliked by the authorities because of their subversive potential, and those by Cervantes are no exception.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was a Spanish novelist, poet, and playwright. His magnum opus Don Quixote is often considered the first modern novel.
