Subject:        MERIDA FESTIVAL

Dear listmembers,

In case some of you have decided to spend your holidays in sunny Spain, this is
a suggestion for you to enjoy our cultural heritage. The Merida Annual Theatre
Festival is under way. The venue is impressive. A realRoman theatre which is
part of Merida Roman past (formerly known as Emerita Au- gusta). Needless to
say, this is an ideal place to offer Shakespeare's Roman Plays. Two of them are
included in the program which I list below:
