The Festival Internacional Cervantino 2015 has just begun on Oct 7 with Chile, Colombia and Peru as guest honor countries and the Mexican State of Morelos as “Guest of honor state”.
The Festival Internacional Cervantino is in the city of Guanajuato, Mexico, a small colonial-historical city with a large cultural scene. The origins of the festival are from the mid 20th century, when short plays by Miguel de Cervantes called entremeses (singular entremés) were performed in the city’s plazas. Since then, FIC has grown to become the most important international artistic and cultural event in Mexico and Latin America, and one of four major events of its type in the world. The best of all arts, music, opera, ballet and visual arts are shown in this now famous festival in which in this year we will have the visit of the extraordinary Russian Bass Ildar Abdrazakov who will perform in the historical Teatro Juarez.
Attending to many of the marvelous, cultural events in the Cervantino is a huge delight not only for the Mexicans but also for the international turists that visit Guanajuato city in Mexico. And the city itself, is a cultural adventure with its beautiful and historical buildings and wonderful museums, one of them, the Iconographic Musem of “Don Quijote” (El Museo Iconográfico del Quijote)
The Festival Internacional Cervantino will end on Oct 25.
