Here is my best explanation:

'feel discontented' is the definition.

I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'theatre in spain' is the subsidiary indication.

'theatre' becomes 'rep' (I've seen this in other clues).

'spain' becomes 'e' (abbreviation for Espana).

'rep'+'in'+'e'='repine'

'to' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for repine that I've seen before include "Plain", "Fret, be discontented", "Be in a state of anxiety", "Fret, about a tree perhaps?", "Be discontented; fret" and "Express discontent".)
