Coronada y el toro (Coronada and the Bull, 1974), is the masterpiece of Francisco Nieva (1924-2016), a prominent figure in the history of Spanish theater. The play dramatizes the story of the confrontation between Coronada and her brother Zebedeo, the lifetime mayor of a provincial Spanish town. One day, during the celebrations in honor of San Blas, the town’s patron saint, Coronada interrupts the acclaimed bullfighting feast that has just been opened by her brother. The bull never arrives: ¿Dónde estará esa bestia fiera? A sophisticated play, rich in intertextuality, humor, and suspense, Coronada premiered in 1982 at Madrid’s María Guerrero Theatre, and it was recently staged in Dallas in April 2022. Amidst folkloric music and dance, the play subverts the image of the bull as the ultimate Spanish symbol, and it presents Coronada’s struggle as a woman and as a popular voice of justice.
