Summary

Esta novela es un homenaje a todas las actrices. A través de la apasionante historia real de María Inés Calderón, La Calderona, la gran estrella teatral del Madrid del Siglo de Oro, Vida de una actriz refleja las dificultades que todas ellas han tenido que afrontar, tanto entonces como ahora, por vivir el amor a su profesión en un mundo que teme a las mujeres poderosas.

Durante la época de esplendor de los corrales de comedias, las cómicas de teatro eran muy influyentes: escribían, dirigían sus propias obras, gozaban de fama# Pero el precio a pagar era muy alto. Ese fue el caso de La Calderona: el éxito de su carrera la llevo a codearse con todos los nobles de la época y a convertirse en la amante del rey Felipe IV, un romance que torció su destino cuando dio a luz al hijo ilegítimo del monarca y fue recluida en un monasterio para evitar el escándalo.

Vida de una actriz es la historia real de una mujer singular y su imparable lucha por la libertad. Una gran epopeya vital que nos traslada a una época fascinante y reivindica la figura clave de la icónica actriz en el Siglo de Oro.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"This novel pays homage to all actresses. Through the passionate true story of Maria Inés Calderón, 'La Calderona,' the great theater star of Madrid during the Golden Age, Life of an Actress reflects the difficulties that all of them have had to face, as much then as now, for living the love of their profession in a world that fears powerful women.
 
During the era of splendor of comedy pens, theater comics were very influential: they wrote and directed their own work, and enjoyed fame. But, the price they paid was very high. That was the case with La Calderona: her career's success had her rubbing elbows with the nobles of the era and becoming King Felipe IV's lover, a romance that changed her destiny when she gave birth to the monarch's illegitimate son and was hidden away in a monastery to avoid a scandal.
 
Life of an Actress is the true story of a remarkable woman and her unstoppable fight for freedom. A great, important epic that takes us to a fascinating era and vindicates the key figure of an iconic actress from the Golden Age.
