Resumen

During its two-year tour of Latin America from 1949 to 1951, the Spanish Lope de Vega Theatre Company employed Golden-Age theatre as a tool for cultural diplomacy. At the time, Francoist Spain's foreign policy towards Latin America focused on the discourse of hispanidad, and the Compañía Lope de Vega's tour played up the shared language and Catholic values that the idea implied. My analysis of the Golden-Age plays performed in the Americas by the Compañía Lope de Vega argues that this tour was as much about projecting Spanish culture abroad as it was about publicizing the Company's activities back in Spain. In his effort to ingratiate himself with the regime, José Tamayo invented a new role for himself—unofficial cultural ambassador. He personally assumed the mission of promoting Spanish culture in the Americas and created abroad an operation parallel to that of the Teatro Nacional de la Falange in order to secure his future within Spain. Ultimately, Tamayo's mission was wholly successful and in 1953 he was appointed director of one of Madrid's two National Theatres.
