"The Mayor of Zalamea, Life's a Dream, The Great Theatre of the World In The Mayor of Zalamea, commissioned by the Royal National Theatre, peasants' honour clashes with military discipline. Life's a Dream is Calderon's most famous philosophical play. The Great Theatre of the World is an allegorical work that would originally have been performed in the street to the accompaniment of music and dancing."

"On The Mayor of Zalamea: 'Adrian Mitchell's translation into various verse forms is spectacular' - Spectator 'A blazing masterpiece' - The Times 'Adrian Mitchell's version of the multi-toned tragi-comedy is something of a revelation. For it show that Calderon can be done into English with the kind of fluency (and fun) which we might expect from our own Jacobean playwrights - and with a flavour all his own' - Daily Telegraph "
