CARLOS ALVAREZ: "I FIRST CAME TO BARCELONA HANDCUFFED AND ESCORTED BY A POLICEMAN"
by Felicia Esquinas

People stop him in the streets now. They come up to him to say hello "as if I were one of the family. They credit me with all the fine qualities displayed by the lovable, sweet character of Solas". Carlos Alvarez played the role of the amiable next door's old pensioner in Benito Zambrano's magnificent movie and that's precisely in Barcelona where he collected his "Goya" award as a "revelation actor". After four long decades of dedicated work on the stage, a year of "fortunate coincidences", along with Calixto Bieito's initiative, has now led Carlos Alvarez to perform for the first time on Barcelona's theatre scene, namely in "La vida es sueño".
