Saramago en compañía

Poetry recital

The stage of the Claustro del Pozo at the San Isidro Secondary School, the oldest educational institution in Spain, will be the venue for a reading of texts by Nobel Prize winner José Saramago. Four other winners of the famous award studied at this same school: Jacinto Benavente, Vicente Aleixandre, José Echegaray and Camilo José Cela.

To mark the centenary of his birth, we present Saramago and company, a poetry recital given by José Luis Gómez, actor, stage director and numbered member of the Royal Spanish Academy, in honour and remembrance of the unforgettable Portuguese writer. On this occasion, his poems will be accompanied by those of other 20th century Nobel Prize winners, with whom he shared a civic commitment, the ability to give expression to the problems of his time, solidarity with the weak and the drive to capture the continuous beat of life.

In collaboration with the José Saramago Foundation
