    Calíope Celebrates 50 Years with Theatrical Adaptation of “Hay un País en el Mundo”
    Santo Domingo, July 10th 2017

    For its 50th anniversary, the Calíope Theatre Group will host an event titled: “Bodas de Oro con el Teatro Dominicano” (Golden Weddings in the Dominican Theater). “Poetas Dominicanos en Pedro Mir” (Dominican Poets Within Pedro Mir), which includes the theatrical adaptation of “Hay Un País en el Mundo” (There is a country in the world) is the name of the performance which Calíope Theatre Group will hold during the event to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

    The performance will be held from Thursday, July 27th to Sunday, July 30th in the Palace of Fine Arts’ Máximo Avilés Blonda Hall. All showings will begin promptly at 8:00 p.m., save Sunday’s showing, which will begin at 7:00 p.m.

    With the inclusion of other national poets in this production, Calíope has made sure that they are not separated from the social messages of their narration and songs. In this way, spectators are able to observe the fidelity of Pedro Mir’s message from 1952 and, hopefully, find for themselves the unpleasant, repressed memories from a disastrous time period in Dominican history, all to say in the immediate future, as Mir states in the epilogue of his famed poem.

    Calíope Theatre Group has developed an ample history as an institution dedicated to the training of a new generation in disciplines such as physical theatre, singing, dance, and music. Founded in 1967, it has long been a cultural beacon looking to project the values of poetry, literature, and greater expressions of universal art.

    The Group has placed such interest and attention into its 50th anniversary production that it has strove to include top actors in the Dominican Republic, such as Jhonnie Mercedes, Gilberto Hernández, Omar Ramírez, and Laura Guzmán, elite Dominican opera singers Alicia Baroni, Fausto Cepeda, and Pedro Pablo Reyes, and a troupe of actors in training at the National School of Performing Arts. Accompanied by the musical stylings of José Peguero, a total of more than 30 actors and artists will be used in the night’s performance.

    This production has been conceived by teacher and director Servio Uribe, who from his beginnings has incorporated ample socio-historical content into his pieces. His work strives to show what the Dominican Republic is as a free and sovereign country since 1844, and provides a window into the investigative process of those who make up his remarkable group, Calíope.

    Tickets are available on Uepa Tickets and at the Palace of Fine Arts’ box office for RD$500 per person.
