Olite Festival of Classical Theatre
The walls of the Castle-Palace of Olite serve as a fabulous backdrop for plays by the best dramatists of all time. In July and August, lovers of classical theatre have a date with the stage in the city of Olite.

Since it began, the Olite Festival of Classical Theatre has opted for a programme of a general nature, accessible to a wide audience that looks for quality and faithful representation but, at the same time, appreciates the singularity of the castle setting.
The Festival stages two open air productions. One venue is La Cava (The Cellar), reserved for major productions, with a capacity for some 700 spectators and the magically quiet Claustro de San Pedro (St Peter's Cloister), intended for smaller scale works or those that, by their very nature, need the audience to be close to the stage.
The Olite Festival of Classical Theatre is a programme that is managed directly by the Department of Culture and Tourism - the Institución Príncipe de Viana within the Government of Navarre - and sponsored by Olite Town Council, the Caja Navarra foundation, Portland Valderrivas cement and Autopistas de Navarra (Motorway of Navarre). Paradores (the state-run hotel chain) also collaborate, as does the Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen Vino de Navarra (the governing board for quality control of the wines of Navarre).
