Austin Shakespeare will debut a new adaptation of Corneille’s romantic tour de force El Cid by Michael Meigs at the Long Center Nov. 10 – 26. Tickets, which start at $20, are available here.  

Corneille’s El Cid is a romantic tour de force. It is a story of a young hero who must fight for his father’s honor by dueling with the father of the woman he loves. Imaginative costumes for El Cid will blend the modern and historical for a reimagining of the classic play. “I am so enthusiastic about our re-visioning of El Cid,” said Austin Shakespeare Artistic Director Ann Ciccolella. “We’ll have new music composed by Jeff Britting and approximately 10% Spanish language from internationally known translator, Michael Meigs.”
