COMEDIA The Spanish comedias written by dramatists of the Golden Age, or Edad de Oro, were five-act plays performed in open-air theatres. They involved stock characters similar to those of the Italian Commedia dell'Arte: a beautiful lady, her suitor, servants and go-betweens. In these comedias, which were not always comical in nature, action and a moral theme took precedence over character. Cloak and dagger episodes were built around plots involving disguises and mistaken identity. They dealt primarily with affairs of the nobility, while peasants were there to provide comic relief or to enhance particular pastoral themes. One of the most prolific comedia writers was Lope de Vega, who wrote on religious, historical and social themes. Other major comedia writers were Pedro Calderón de la Barca and Tirso de Molina, from whose pen came the figure of the archetypal seducer, Don Juan, in El Burlador de Sevilla y Convidado de Piedra (1630).
