As a novelty in this 2015 edition of the festival Veranos de la Villa, the chosen stage is Puente de Rey, which substitutes the Sabatini Gardens for security reasons. Located in the area of Madrid Río, next to the entrance of Casa de Campo, it is a more green and fresh location without so much asphalt, ideal to enjoy different concerts and performances. One of them is the lyrical comedy Luisa Fernanda, a classic 20th-century operetta that you can enjoy from the 5th of August until the 16th of the same month at 10.00pm.
From the 19th until the 30th of August you can see the play A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, a classic comedy and one of the most successful on Broadway, without a single serious moment throughout. It is a crazy vaudeville with plenty of action which received the Tony Award for Best Musical. Prices start at 25 euros.
