I can only imagine the thrill of attending a play that has been performed since the 1400's. That is possible during the month of January in Rabinal, Baja Verapza, Gautemala. The drama is called Rabinal Achi aka Dance of the Trumpets. It is the only pre-contact Mayan theater extant. The definitive modern edition of this masterpiece was published by Oxford University Press in 2003.
