2018/19 SEASON

In the 2018-2019 season, Ópera de Tenerife is bringing a programme that includes essential Italian classic composers like Rossini, Donizetti or Puccini, in addition to a wide range of activities related to different fields of artistic production and learning.

The Italian in Algiers by Rossini is the first production which, as usual, will be performed by the students at Opera (e)Studio, the academy directed by Giulio Zappa. It will be followed by Lucia di Lammermoor by Donizetti; Rossini’s The Journey to ReimsTurandot by Puccini and as part of the continued support to zarzuela, Penella’s classic The Wildcat is also in the programme.  It will be closed by the sixth Tenerife International Opera Singing Competition, where, once again, we will have the chance to enjoy great international voices. In 2019 the seventh Masterclass in vocal and performing improvement for young talents will be held.

There is also the itinerant Opera Pocket -with a revival of the Auditorio de Tenerife production, The traviata- to be put on at different venues on the island; and the learning activity Ópera en Ruta, that brings to new audiences the secrets of the world of opera and of the titles performed.

For the under 27 we offer a special rate of just 20€ (Young Club Ópera Package). To adapt to your needs and circumstances, we also offer different options to become a member of Club Ópera:  Ambassador Package, First-timer Package, Group/Association Package and Large Families Package.

We have just presented the shows and new features for 2017/2018, a thrilling season that includes great titles like I Capuleti e i Montecchi by Bellini, which is also part of the project Opera (e)Studio, a programme to bridge the academic and the professional worlds and discover great talents. Faust by Gounod, Don Carlo by Verdi or Mozart’s The Magic Flute round off our offer. To further our support to zarzuela, we are also putting on Torroba’s Luisa Fernanda. Our offer includes Verdi’s Requiem with Tenerife Symphony Orchestra and Tenerife International Opera Singing Competition, which is on to its fifth year and is led by Giovanna Lomazzi, President of ASLICO.

Learning and Training

We believe opera to be the best example of western culture as it is the art form where different cultural manifestations and processes converge, which must be conveyed to society coherently. That is why, together with the Learning and Community Area of Auditorio de Tenerife, we carry out ongoing multidisciplinary outreach work.

Manos a la Ópera [Hands-on Opera] and Ópera en Familia [Family Opera] are two in-house schemes related to our commitment to bring opera and culture to Tenerife people. Our aim is to create an unforgettable experience open to people of all ages, in which literature, music, painting, performing arts or human values go beyond the stage of Auditorio de Tenerife.  

Ópera (e)Studio is the prestigious comprehensive training school for young opera singers directed by maestro Giulio Zappa. After five years, many of its former members have established an outstanding career performing in the best opera stages worldwide: Na'ama Goldman, Giovanni Romeo, Giuliana Gianfaldoni, Leonor Bonilla, Pablo Ruiz, David Astorga, Lamia Beuque, Riccardo Fassi, Pablo Gálvez, Arianna Venditelli, Danielle Terenzi, Eugenio di Lieto, Antoinette Dennefeld, etc.

El filósofo Fernando Broncano ofrecerá este lunes [día 28] a las 19:00 horas en el Salón de Grados de Filosofía una nueva visita a la historia entre los dos amantes de la novela de Alejandro Dumas La dama de las camelias. Con la intención de desgranar las claves culturales del amor romántico, el experto abordará la última conferencia de Primavera Violeta, el programa del Cabildo y la Universidad de La Laguna que fomenta los valores de igualdad a través de la cultura y que se ha articulado alrededor de La traviata.

Broncano disertará con la propuesta titulada Lo que ignoran los hombres. La dama de las camelias y la opacidad en los espacios afectivo, desvelando así los límites de nuestras ideas sobre el amor o las relaciones afectivas. Las obras de Dumas y Verdi son unos valiosos documentos que muestran la distorsión del orden de los afectos, conformando ambas una ventana a las cegueras de las sociedades y sobre cómo los sentimientos se articulan con otras formas de existencia social. La entrada será libre hasta completar aforo.

Fernando Broncano (Salamanca, 1954) es catedrático de Lógica y Filosofía de la Ciencia en la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid y su trabajo se centra en la noción de racionalidad tanto en aspectos teóricos, epistémicos como prácticos. Ofreciendo diagnósticos conceptuales y críticos sobre la cultura, ciencia y sociedad contemporánea.

Esta conferencia es la última del ciclo cultural Primavera Violeta, una iniciativa conjunta entre Ópera de Tenerife, el Instituto Universitario de Estudios de las Mujeres (IUEM) y la Cátedra Cultural Pedro García Cabrera, que desde mes de abril ha ofrecido un programa de conferencias multidisciplinar que aborda las coordenadas de igualdad tomando como referencia la ópera La traviata, una producción de Auditorio de Tenerife que se representará del 31 de mayo al 3 de junio en el Paraninfo de la Universidad de La Laguna y los días 9 y 10 de junio en Garachico.

La directora del IUEM, Inmaculada Perdomo; el intendente de Ópera de Tenerife, Alejandro Abrante; la directora de escena Stefania Bonfadelli; el director de Opera (e)Studio, Giulio Zappa, y la escritora Laura Freixas han sido los ponentes que han conformado este  programa.

Actualidad

La explícita exclusión de la palabra en la esfera pública a las mujeres, como mecanismo fundamental de la sociedad patriarcal, supone el punto de partida de la quinta conferencia del programa del Cabildo y la Universidad de La Laguna, Primavera Violeta, que la escritora Laura Freixas ofrecerá mañana [jueves 17], a las 19:00 horas en TEA Tenerife Espacio de las Artes.

A lo largo de una hora, Freixas disertará con su propuesta titulada Mujeres que sufren, cantan, mueren callan. Una constante cultural: la exaltación del sufrimiento, recorriendo el amplio abanico temporal que abarca los textos y manifestaciones culturales clásicas desde Homero hasta las actuales letras de reguetón; pasando por San Pablo, Quevedo, Shakespeare, Tiziano o Moliere. Desgranando a través de estos ejemplos que la mujer puede tomar la palabra con la única condición de que la expresión de su sufrimiento no se traduzca en cuestionar la jerarquía entre los sexos o que no ataque ni destruya a nadie ni a nada. La entrada será libre hasta completar aforo.

Laura Freixas (Barcelona, 1958) es autora, investigadora y promotora de literatura escrita por mujeres que ha escrito, entre otros: Todos llevan máscara. Diario 1995-1996 (2018); El silencio de las madres (2014) o La novela femenil y sus lectrices (2008), con el que recibe el galardón Leonor de Guzmán.

Esta conferencia se incluye dentro de del ciclo cultural Primavera Violeta, una iniciativa conjunta entre Ópera de Tenerife, el Instituto Universitario de Estudios de las Mujeres y la Cátedra Cultural Pedro García Cabrera, a través de un amplio programa interdisciplinar de actividades que pivota en torno a la próxima producción de Auditorio de Tenerife La traviata que se representará en el Paraninfo de la Universidad de La Laguna del 31 de mayo al 3 de junio y en la Glorieta de San Francisco (Garachico) el 9 y 10 de junio.

El Teatro Comunale de Bolonia acogió ayer [domingo 6] el estreno de la producción Capuletos y Montescos, el clásico de Bellini, en una coproducción de Auditorio de Tenerife con el recinto cultural italiano. Esa primera función fue retransmitida en directo por la RAI, la radio pública italiana. La producción se mantendrá en cartel hasta el próximo domingo y ofrecerá un total de seis funciones.

Capuletos y Montescos se pudo ver el pasado mes de octubre en el Auditorio de Tenerife en la representación que se incluye dentro de la academia de aprendizaje Opera (e)Studio que abrió la temporada 2017-18 de Ópera de Tenerife.

El estreno de la producción de Auditorio de Tenerife en Bolonia contó con la presencia del director insular de Cultura y Educación, José Luis Rivero; el gerente de Auditorio de Tenerife, Daniel Cerezo; el intendente de Ópera de Tenerife, Alejandro Abrante, y el director de Opera (e)Studio, Giulio Zappa. 

Esta coproducción entre Auditorio de Tenerife y Teatro Comunale di Bologna cuenta con la dirección musical de Federico Santi y la de escena de Silvia Paoli, junto a los artistas Francesco Castoro y Gillen Munguía (en el papel de Tebaldo); Alberto Camón y Vincenzo Santoro (Capellio); Nicolò Donini y Diego Savini (Lorenzo); Aurora Faggioli y Christina Campsall (Romeo); Lara Lagni y Nina Solodovnikova (Giulietta).

Este es el mismo elenco que participó en la última edición de Opera (e)Studio en Tenerife y que fue elegido entre los más de 127 candidatos que se apuntaron en las diferentes audiciones que tuvieron lugar en Bolonia, Madrid y Tenerife. Las audiciones para la próxima edición también han comenzado esta semana, coincidiendo con las funciones de Capuletos y Montescos, continuarán en Madrid y finalizarán este domingo en el Auditorio de Tenerife.

Ópera (e)Studio es una academia de perfeccionamiento artístico integral, dirigida por Giulio Zappa, con sede permanente en el Auditorio de Tenerife que cada temporada genera una participación novel que pone en escena un título lírico. Este proyecto surgió con el objetivo de realizar un puente entre el mundo académico y profesional, haciendo que el artista se relacione con todas las dimensiones del trabajo lírico, desde el trabajo vocal, hasta la escena, pasando por las relaciones humanas y profesionales.
