29 April The El Batel Auditorium once again welcomes the innovative company Yllana on its stage, which, on this occasion, will delight the spectators with ‘Maestrissimo (Pagagnini 2)’. This show, which combines chamber music and humour, will take place at 9pm. ‘Maestrissimo’ will delight viewers with a carefully crafted aesthetic and hilarious characters, addressing issues such as ethics, creation, originality and the value of art in society, while at the same time reviews key moments of classical music. All the actors/musicians behave with a wonderful stage attitude and fulfill what is required of this type of proposal: to entertain the public. As the music is a fundamental piece, with violins and a cello in front, this show reviews a whole series of recognizable melodies in sound, merging themes from the 17th and 18th centuries with melodies from the last few centuries, with versions of songs from Metallica, The Police, John Williams and The Beatles. Tickets from the auditorium box office and on the web: auditorioelbatel.es.

A new temporary exhibition on the figure of Indiana Jones is announced. The exhibition entitled ‘In search of lost treasures’ will feature a hundred original objects, as well as exact replicas of the elements that appear in the films of the saga of the famous archaeologist, which can be seen from the beginning of April, until the end of September. Among them, you can see the idol of fertility and the sandbag from the beginning of ‘In Search of the Lost Ark’, one of the most iconic works of the entire saga. In addition, the exhibition will feature an original script signed by the actor Harrison Ford, as well as the mythical grails of Indiana Jones, the ark of the covenant and the Sankara stones, among other characteristic elements.
Until 30 May the painting exhibition ‘From Cartagena to Caravaca de la Cruz. A pilgrimage told in watercolour’, shows the viewer a selection of the most significant illustrations from the book ‘Andar pintando’, where the author chronicles his pilgrimage following in the footsteps of the apostle Santiago from the port of Santa Lucía in Cartagena, where tradition says that the apostle set foot for the first time in Hispania, to Caravaca de la Cruz. See it at Museo Teatro Romano.
