William Shakespeare’s work is basis of Spanish production

Terruño Espressivo will present its first play of 2013, a take on 10 of William Shakespeare’s sonnets.

Shakespeare has a total collection of 154 sonnets that were published in the 17th century. Through these short poems, the poet expresses his views on love, beauty, time and mortality.

The show, entitled “Pasiones,” will premiere Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. It uses sonnets 27, 143, 61, 23, 90, 14, 29, 147, 42 and 33, which have been translated into Spanish by José Basileo Acuña.

Although the play is in Spanish, the English version of the sonnets will be projected above the stage, said a spokesperson.

At 6 p.m., before the play begins, the company will present a complete 2013 calendar of theater productions, concerts and festivals. The reception will include drinks and snacks, said a release.

Everything will be held in the Teatro Espressivo Pinares located on the second floor of the Centro Comercial Momentum Pinares off of Ruta 251, the old road to Tres Ríos in Curridabat.
