CHAPTER III

The corrales of Seville. Las Atarazanas. La Alcoba. San Pedro. The Huerta de Doña Elvira. The Coliseo. La Monteria.

TURNING now to another city, to Seville, we find more detailed information concerning the public theaters or corrales than was available in the case of Madrid. In Seville, as already noted, corrales seem to have been established at about the same time that we first find them in Madrid. The Corral de Don Juan was in existence as early as 1575; here the Italian Ganassa performed in that year, "and those who went to see the comedias of Ganassa in the Corral de Don Juan paid an entrance fee of half a real; a real for each chair (silla) and a cuartillo (=1/4 real) for each seat on the bancos."1In 1578 the Corral de las Atarazanas was built, followed by that of the Huerta de la Alcoba and the San Pedro (the latter apparently ceased to exist after 1610), besides one mentioned by Rodrigo Caro, which was in the Collacion de San Vicente, and lastly, and perhaps the most famous of all, that of Doña Elvira.2 During the seventeenth century two others

There were other corrales in Seville besides those here mentioned, according to Sanchez-Arjona. "Mateo de Salcedo y Juan Cano arrendaron en 1600 unas casas que hubieron de servir de posada para los comediantes, y en cuyo patio hicieron un teatro con algunos aposentos de tablas, 'sin otra mezcla que la trabazon,' y los autores que venian á Sevilla 'negociaban representar sus comedias en el dicho teatro y casa de Salcedo, sin haber habido otra licencia de la Ciudad.'" Besides this corral there were "las casas del coliseo del Duque de Medina Sidonia (situadas en la plaza del Duque)" and "el corral de San Pablo, próximo sin duda al convento de este nombre, de cuyos corrales no tenemos más noticias que esta ligera referencia." (Ibid., pp. 502, 503.)
