On Wednesday, the 30th the Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) is putting the last show in their programme: San Juan, by La República theatre company. Written by Max Aub, it deals with exile through a ship journey. With the support of the Department of Education, Youth, Museums, Culture and Sport of the Cabildo de Tenerife, run by councillor Concepción Rivero, the play will be performed at 8:30 pm in the Teatro El Sauzal. Tickets are at 12 euros and there are discounts available. You can book them on www.meitenerife.com.

San Juan is an allegory of exile written by Aub, a Spanish author who fled to Mexico after the Spanish Civil War. It is about the tragic journey of some Jewish people in 1938 on board the San Juan, a former animal cargo ship. They travel from country to country but are rejected at every port. Nonetheless, the hope that they will be allowed to land at some point drives them on. 

Nearly all the social types are on the San Juan: rich and poor, young and old, rebels and submissive, traitors and loyal, communist Jews... A piece of society that eventually shows its ugliest side: misery, despair, ambition, resignation… The boat becomes one single character with a common fate for everyone. 

With the Jews and the World War 2 as a backdrop, San Juan criticises the lack of humanity, also among the Jews, who are crowded together on the old boat. A redeeming shipwreck, therefore, death, is the longed-for freedom to escape from the tragedy. 

Directed by Nacho Cabrera, the cast performing the crew includes Miguel Ángel Maciel, Efraím Martín, Toni Báez, Abián de la Cruz, Idaira Lermo, Sara Álvarez, and Saulo Valerón. The play by the Gran Canaria company was performed at Teatro Cuyas de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on 25 and 26 September.

The Cabildo’s orchestra will play with the reduced orchestra now in place the Cello Concerto in A minor, op. 12 by Robert Schumann, Dmitri Shostakovich‘s Chamber Symphony, op. 110a -arranged by Rudolf Barshai- and Variaciones concertantes, op. 23 by Alberto Ginastera.

The Cello Concerto in A minor, op. 12 was written by Robert Schumann in 1850, during a period regarded as his most creative.  Like an elegy, this composition, in which the cello has a conversation with the other instruments, evokes an atmosphere of withdrawal and melancholy. 

Chamber Symphony, op. 110a -arranged by Rudolf Barshai- is by Dmitri Shostakovich and has never been played by Sinfónica de Tenerife before. It is of an autobiographical nature and quotes from many of his main works are easily identified like his First and Tenth Symphonies, his opera Lady Macbeth, or his first Cello Concerto. 

Alberto Ginastera‘s Variaciones concertantes, op. 23 is one of the main works of the Argentinian composer’s “subjective nationalism” period, in which folklore and traditional music play a fundamental role as groundbreaking creative elements. 

Juanjo Mena was awarded the Premio Nacional de Música in the Performance category in 2016 and is internationally regarded as one of the most renowned Spanish conductors. He is currently principal conductor of the Cincinnati May Festival. He has been principal conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, Guest principal conductor of the Bergen Filharmoniske Orkester and the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa, in addition to principal conductor and artistic director of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Bilbao.

He has led prestigious ensembles including the philharmonic of Berlin, London, della Scala (Milan), Oslo and Rotterdam, the symphony orchestras of Bavaria Radio, Bamberg, Swedish Radio, Danish National and NHK Tokyo, French National Orchestra, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. In America he has conducted the symphony orchestras of Chicago, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Montreal, Pittsburgh and Toronto, the New York and Los Angeles philharmonics and the Cleveland, Minnesota, Philadelphia and Washington orchestras, among others.

Cellist Pablo Ferrández, Sinfónica de Tenerife‘s resident artist for the 2020/21 season has been recognised at the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition, ICMA Young Artist of the Year and in 2018 he won the Premio Princesa de Girona for his “exceptional talent and international scope”. In the last seasons he has taken part in music engagements like the Hollywood Bowl with Los Angeles Philharmonic, with Bavaria Radio Symphony Orchestra and has collaborated with Anne-Sophie Mutter playing Brahms Double Concerto in Madrid and Oxford; he also made his debut with Bamberg Symphony, or collaborated with Anne-Sophie Mutter, Khatia Buniatishvili and the London Philharmonic playing Beethoven‘s Triple Concerto.

Ferrández has also performed with Filarmonica della Scala and R. Chailly, Mahler Chamber Orchestra and D. Gatti, Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony, RTE National Symphony Orchestra, Dusseldorf Symphony at Elbphilharmonie, Orchestra Sinfonica Nationale RAI, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquesta Nacional de España, Orquesta de RTVE, or Orquesta Sinfónica de les Illes Balears.

El Festival Internacional de Música de Cine de Tenerife (FIMUCITÉ) afronta este fin de semana la recta final de su decimocuarta edición, una entrega que un año más está llenando los espacios culturales de la isla con la mejor música de cine gracias al apoyo de Cabildo de Tenerife, Ayuntamiento de Santa Cruz, Ayuntamiento de La Laguna, Gobierno de Canarias, Auditorio de Tenerife y Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife. La banda sonora de la exitosa serie de televisión ‘La Casa de papel’, compuesta por Manel Santisteban e Iván Martínez Lacámara, será absoluta protagonista con el estreno mundial de su interpretación en formato sinfónico bajo la dirección artística y musical del reconocido compositor y director de orquesta Diego Navarro, director de FIMUCITÉ.

Los detalles de estos conciertos históricos fueron dados por el presidente del Cabildo de Tenerife, Pedro Martín; el alcalde de La Laguna, Luis Yeray Gutiérrez; el director del festival y conductor de la Sinfónica de Tenerife, Diego Navarro; el creador de La casa de papel, Álex Pina; el actor de la serie Pedro Alonso; la cantante del tema principal, Cecilia Krull, y los compositores Manel Santisteban e Iván Martínez Lacámara.

El presidente del Cabildo dio la bienvenida a los protagonistas de los conciertos de hoy y mañana. “Esta situación que estamos viviendo de crisis sanitaria tendrá que pasar pero para volver a una realidad nueva y definitiva necesitamos a la cultura porque hay ámbitos de la vida a los que no podemos renunciar”, declaró Pedro Martín.

Luis Yeray Gutiérrez agradeció a Navarro contar con La Laguna “de la forma tan firme en la que se ha desarrollado este año; un municipio con una apuesta decidida por la cultura, que quiere ser referente cultural y que gracias a FIMUCITÉ lo consigue”.

Diego Navarro aseguró que se trata de una rueda de prensa muy especial y que “ha sido tremendo llegar hasta aquí”. “Todos los festivales del mundo de este género han cancelado sus ediciones 2020, solo FIMUCITÉ resiste, el más antiguo de Europa”, compartió el también compositor.

El creador de la exitosa serie, la primera española en ganar un Emmy, aseguró que su relación con Tenerife “es cada vez más poderosa”. “Antes escribíamos aquí y ahora hasta grabamos y venimos a conciertos”, aseguró Pina, quien forma tándem con Santisteban desde hace 25 años y considera que “nuestra forma de diseñar personajes es conmovedora”.

El actor Pedro Alonso hizo hincapié en el esfuerzo que ha hecho el equipo para sacar adelante este festival: “Es una construcción de una gran envergadura que requiere muchísimo esfuerzo”. El intérprete que encarna a Berlín en la serie confesó que participará en dos momentos de la serie cantando y que, tras los ensayos, puede decir que “la vibración en el escenario con toda la orquesta tocando es alucinante, es otro nivel”.

La cantante de My life is going on,  Celicia Krull confesó que, “a pesar de que la canción pintaba muy bien desde el principio, nadie pensaba que fuese a gustar tanto, se ha buscado muchísimo en Shazam, es como un tesoro que ha creado Manel”. “Este proyecto de La Resistencia es maravillosos y le da empaque a esta música de la serie, que nos llega hasta los huesos”.

Manel Santisteban aseguró estar emocionado “y lo estoy desde el minuto uno de este proyecto, cuando Diego me llamó”. “Tenerife nos está dando una gran acogida desde que llegamos y he notado una buena energía y un nivel de implicación que no me esperaba”, explicó el compositor, quien asegura que “la Sinfónica de Tenerife es una de las mejores orquestas del mundo”.

Iván Martínez Lacámara habló de lo complicado que es elegir la música para un concierto así porque “en cada temporada de la serie puede haber cuatro o cinco horas de música”.

El Auditorio de Tenerife acogerá las dos funciones previstas de ‘Somos La Resistencia: La Casa de papel En Concierto’, que tendrán lugar este viernes y mañana sábado 26 de septiembre, con la presencia de los compositores Manel Santisteban e Iván Martínez Lacámara, y la cantante Cecilia Krull, quien interpretará sobre el escenario la popular canción principal de la serie, ‘My life is going on’.

Ópera de Tenerife’s coproduction L’elisir d’amore by Donizetti, is reaching Italian Teatro Comunale di Bologna next week. This is a transnational project that is supported by the European Commission’s prestigious grant Creative Europe. Auditorio de Tenerife, which is under the Department of Education, Youth, Museums, Culture and Sport of the Cabildo de Tenerife, run by councillor Concepción Rivero, is the leading theatre of the project in partnership with Teatro Comunale di Bologna and Tbilisi Opera and Ballet State Theatre in Georgia.

The performances at the Italian theatre were originally scheduled for June but had to be put off due to the health crisis. They are now taking place on 29 and 30 September and 1, 3, 6 and 7 October, and are the first opera performances of this institution after the pandemic. L’elisir d’amore opened at Auditorio de Tenerife’s Sala Sinfónica with Pablo Maritano as stage director on 24 to 27 October 2019 and was on at Tbilisi Opera and Ballet State Theatre on 26, 27 and 29 February and 1 March 2020.

The cast was selected in auditions held by the Opera (e)Studio high specialisation academy in February 2019 in Bologna, Tbilisi, Madrid and Tenerife, which were attended by 181 candidates from 33 different nationalities. The singers who took part in the original performance were María Rita Combattelli (soprano); Beatriz de Sousa (soprano); Klodjan Kaçani (tenor); César Arrieta (tenor); Alberto Bonifazio (baritone); Jacobo Ochoa (baritone); Givi Gigineishvili (bass); Matteo Andrea Mollica (bass); Sofía Esparza (soprano) and Leonora Tess (soprano). The Italian cast also includes David Astorga singer.

The project as a whole, which includes the coproduction, the tour, the auditions, the training and several other activities, is what the European Commission’s Creative Europe has singled out from the hundreds of projects received. The goal of this European programme is to support the cultural and film industries of the continent. 

Opera (e)Studio is Ópera de Tenerife’s high specialisation academy for artists and has had Giulio Zappa as artistic director since 2012. This project was set up with the aim of providing training to young artists in all the opera disciplines while at the same time meeting the demands of the present work market.

L’elisir d’amore is a melodramma giocoso by Gaetano Donizetti and libretto by Felice Romani, based on Eugène Scribe’s text Le philtre for the opera by Daniel François Esprit Auber. It is one of the composer’s best-received opera buffa thanks to unforgettable melodies like ‘Una furtiva lagrima’ and a lively plot that tells us about the love affair between beautiful Adina and naïve Nemorino. It was premiered at Teatro della Canobbiana in Milan on 12 May 1832.

    The Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) is presenting four shows this week: Siete hombres buenos, a text by Juan Mayorga; ¡Valientes!, with a singular setting; Informe Lope, a premiere; and Fábula del topo, el murciélago y la musaraña, based on a true story. These options of the Department of Education, Youth, Museums, Culture and Sport of the Cabildo de Tenerife, run by councillor Concepción Rivero, will be on at 8:30 pm at the Teatro El Sauzal. Standard tickets at 12 euros and discounts are available on www.meitenerife.com.

    The first show, on tomorrow, Tuesday, the 22nd is Siete hombres buenos, by 2RC Teatro. It is a text from the first play by Juan Mayorga, which was awarded Accésit Marqués de Bradomín in 1989, and is first showing now, thirty years later. It is about a government in exile for many years. Ideals have changed, past treasons return to the present, personal interests taint this government when the tyrant is overthrown and there is a chance to return. 

    ¡Valientes! by Burka Teatro, is an apparent dramatized guided tour by an exquisite historian who is interrupted by an astonishing character, a homeless woman who is actually a fount of wisdom. They will both take the audience on an exciting, amusing journey across the stories of many women who have fought for gender equality since Antiquity. This play will be performed on Wednesday, the 23rd at MEI with a singular setting where there is no stage. 

    On Friday, the 25th Informe Lope will be premiered. Morfema Teatro recreates the setting of a mysterious corporation whose basements store theatre plays from all periods, including the ones by Lope de Vega. Ramírez and González, a woman and a man respectively, are the officials in charge of classifying and preparing it for “publication”. The conflict develops from the main topic it deals with, that is, the way the playwright conceived his female characters. 

    On Sunday, the 27th Fábula del topo, el murciélago y la musaraña, by Delirium Teatro, will tell us about the ups and downs experienced by Pedro Perdomo Pérez and his family. He was a chairperson of PSOE (Socialist Party) at the Casa del Pueblo in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria during the first days of the army uprising in 1936 after which he turned first into a target, then into a fugitive and eventually, into a topo of Franco repression. After hiding for 33 years at the house of two of his sisters and protected by an amnesty, he resurrects to the world at the beginning of the Transition. This show is part of Teatro El Sauzal programme.

    MEI shows, which is organized by Auditorio de Tenerife, have two different rates: standard at 12 euros and El Sauzal residents at 9 euros. There are other non-combinable discounts available for the unemployed (50%), under 30 (30%), large families (25%) and students (10%). A document proving entitlement to the discount must be produced when entering the theatre (DNI, DARDE, large family card, student card…).

    The Festival de las Artes del Movimiento FAM continues its 2020 Special next Sunday at 8:00 pm with Ígnea, by Colectivo Lamajara. This new piece premiers today, 16th at the Sala Negra de los Teatros del Canal in Madrid and will be in Tenerife for a second performance at the Government of the Canary Islands’s venue Espacio La Granja, that collaborates in the festival with Auditorio de Tenerife, which is under the Department of Education, Youth, Museums, Culture and Sport of the Cabildo de Tenerife, run by councillor Concepción Rivero.

    The group says that in this volcano-inspired piece “with pleasure, willingly, we let ourselves burn and invoke the unstable nature of things, bringing the image of a volcano as a metaphor for these thoughts.” “In times of explosions, the apparent balance rejects instability, which is, paradoxically, one of its means of expression…”, they say.

    Paloma Hurtado, Reinaldo Ribeiro and Daniel Rosado are behind the concept of this new creation, which received a Cabildo de Tenerife grant for professional stage productions. Texts are by Arantza López in collaboration with Colectivo Lamajara. The bodies in Ígnea belong to Igor Calonge, Milagros García, Paloma Hurtado, Daniel Morales and Daniel Rosado; and they are clad with costumes by Héctor León. Stage design is by Luis Crespo and Irene Cantero takes care of lighting. Original music is by Paloma Peñarrubia.

    El Colectivo Lamajara is an organization of artists who share a common interest in the language of the body and its possible expressions. It is made up of emerging creators, dancers and collaborators from other art disciplines. The group organizes work cooperatively, encouraging dialogue and agreement towards a common methodology. Their main goal is to support free artistic expression, helping to produce free, eclectic creations.

    The public is kindly asked to come to Auditorio early enough to enter the theatre gradually. On buying the tickets, users accept the measures implemented at this cultural centre by the Cabildo to deal with COVID-19, such as wearing a face mask.

    Auditorio de Tenerife, que depende del Área de Cultura, Educación, Juventud, Museos y Deportes del Cabildo insular de Tenerife, que dirige la consejera Concepción Rivero, presenta este jueves [día 17] a las 19:30 horas el primer concierto de la temporada su Ciclo de Cámara. Al cappone, de la Orquesta Barroca de Tenerife, agotó durante el fin de semana las entradas para este concierto, un homenaje a los castrati, el canto operístico barroco del siglo XVIII, que contará con el contratenor italiano Filippo Mineccia.

    La formación, que tocará en la Sala de Cámara, contará en esta ocasión con Alfonso Sebastián como clave y director invitado. Por primera vez la violinista Judith Verona hará de concertino, mientras que Laura Díaz será el violín barroco I. Sergio Suárez y Giovanni Déniz se encargarán de los violines barrocos II, mientras que las violas barrocas sonarán de las manos de Víctor Gil y Melchor García. Completan las filas de la orquesta Diego Pérez al violonchelo barroco, Juan Carlos Baeza al violone y Jorge Rubiales a la tiorba. El broche de oro lo pondrá la voz de Mineccia

    Este programa titulado  Al cappone no alude al famoso gánster estadounidense sin la doble pe, sino al mundo sonoro de los castrati  que cantaron los mejores roles de las óperas barrocas, producto de la historia. El director artístico de la Orquesta, Conrado Álvarez, explica que la voz del invitado especial de la noche “emula, con todo intacto, a los capones o castrati, invento del Imperio Romano de Oriente para los coros bizantinos de Constantinopla, desde el siglo IV hasta siglo XIII, en desuso tras la cuarta cruzada, que brotó con fuerza en el Renacimiento llegando a su apogeo, de la mano de la ópera, nell'ottocento y al declive en las postrimerías del siglo XIX”.

    “Es bueno recordar que el canto de falsete existe en la naturaleza humana desde siempre  y que la técnica del falsete coexistía con los eunucos músicos desde la Edad Media, pero las exigencias de las partes vocales escritas por los autores barrocos necesitaba de la potencia, la presión sonora y, sobre todo, de la extrema extensión de la tesitura de los cantantes masculinos castrados”, explica Álvarez.

    Se ruega al público llegar al recinto con antelación suficiente para realizar una entrada escalonada a la sala. La compra de las entradas supone la aceptación de las medidas implementadas por el centro cultural del Cabildo para hacer frente a la COVID-19, como el uso de la mascarilla o la asistencia solo con convivientes. Las medidas al completo, así como el plan de contingencia certificado por AENOR, se pueden consultar en la web del Auditorio. Tanto la cafetería GastroMag como el parking están disponibles.

    Filippo Mineccia nace en Florencia y comienza sus estudios en la Escuela de Música de Fiesole, cantando desde niño en el coro polifónico con voz blanca. Obtiene las licenciaturas de violonchelo y canto en el Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini de Florencia.

    Ha trabajado con grupos especializados y orquestas historicistas de toda Europa cantado con directores como: A. Viktora, A. Curtis, A. Florio, C. Ipata, C. Aragon, C. Cavina, D. Coleman, E. Onofri, F. M. Bressan, G. Rufet, J. U. Illán, M. Valdivieso, M. Mazzeo, M. Hofstetter, O. Dantone, R. Jais y T. Engelbrock.

    The Cabildo de Tenerife, through the Department of Education, Youth, Museums, Culture and Sport, run by councillor Concepción Rivero, presents the premiere of the show Todo el cielo, by Unahoramenos Producciones, at the Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) [Latin American Stage Showcase]. It is a dramaturgy of Canarian poems with live music that will be seen for the first time tomorrow Tuesday, the 15th at 8:30 pm in Teatro El Sauzal. Tickets, at a general price of 12 euros and with discounts now available, are on sale on www.meitenerife.com.

    Many poets believe to be writing the same poem, that all of them in different languages, places and times have ventured into the blank page to add another piece to a wonderful, unfinished puzzle. That is how Todo el cielo came into being, a journey through Canarian poems from different periods and authors, selected by Yeray Rodríguez, that will come to life together, like voices in a choir to bring the song of the many into one single song.

    Actors Marta Viera and Ruth Sánchez will bring these verses to life along with the music of Carlos Oramas, who is specialised in Baroque instruments. This play, directed by Mario Vega, has Nauzet Afonso as costume designer; the lighting design is by Ibán Negrín and Valentín Rodríguez is the production manager.

    In the presentation of the show, it was said that “on these brief islands, for centuries we’ve pursued answers that poems have not fully given us; this makes the questions grow.  Perhaps in the voice of others, that becomes more our own the more choral it is, we may find rather than the answer, the definite question. We have the whole sky to find out”.

    MEI shows, which is an event organised by the Auditorio de Tenerife, offer two different rates: general, at 12 euros and for residents in El Sauzal at 9 euros. Also, other non-combinable individual discounts are available: (50%), aged under 30 (30%), large families (25%) and students (10%). A document to prove this condition must be shown on entering the theatre. (DNI, DARDE, large family card, student card...).

    Tickets can now be booked online on www.meitenerife.com, at Teatro El Sauzal box office 90 minutes before every MEI show and at Auditorio de Tenerife box office by getting an appointment to come Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays. You can book your appointment for the box office on www.auditoriodetenerife.com/contactar and on 922 568 625, where they will also answer all your queries Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays.

    The company

    Unahoramenos Producciones was set up in the southeast of Gran Canaria in 1999. After some years producing very successful shows, in 2014 it focuses on social-based artistic creation. Mario Vega becomes the head of creative direction and at present all their shows have to do with social issues.

    Me llamo Suleimán (2015) and Los Malditos (2016), both written by Antonio Lozano, denounce the unfair and unbalanced relationship between Europe and Africa through innovative staging that are very well-received by both critics and audiences.  Both shows were granted the R for recommended show from the Theatre Commission of the RED Nacional; Me llamo Suleimán got six Réplica Awards and Los Malditos have eight nominations for the XX Premios Max.

    In 2018 the company started a three-year innovation and research project called Laboratorio Galdós, Ana, también a nosotros nos llevará el olvido, by Gran Canarian Irma Correa, about the social situation of women in 1960s Spain, during the dictatorship. The show got the R for recommended show from the Theatre Commission of the RED Nacional plus 3 nomination for the XXII Premios Max.

    In 2019 and 2020 the Laboratorio Galdós continues with their creative innovation and research projects, encouraging citizens’ participation and attracting audiences with two other shows of marked social conscience. One of this shows is El crimen de la calle Fuencarral, which opened on Sunday, the 13th the 2020 Special MEI.

    Moria is their new play on social issues, stage research and innovation down a path that brings together passion for the theatre and an obligation to denounce social injustice. Moria is a cry to Europe, a call to European citizens to become aware of the fact that our land is once again in a most atrocious situation: the death of hundreds f people through our indifference. It was meant to be premiered at MEI 2020 but it had to be postponed due to the health crisis as it is immersive theatre.

    El Cabildo de Tenerife ha presentado, a través de Auditorio de Tenerife, la Edición Especial 2020 de la Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI), que tendrá lugar del 13 al 30 del presente mes de septiembre en el Teatro El Sauzal. Los detalles fueron dados a conocer hoy por la consejera de Educación, Juventud, Museos, Cultura y Deportes del Cabildo de Tenerife, Concepción Rivero; el director artístico del Auditorio de Tenerife, José Luis Rivero; y los directores de dos compañías canarias que estrenan espectáculos en el festival: Mario Vega, de Unahoramenos Producciones, y Ricardo del Castillo, de Morfema Teatro.

    La consejera explicó que se trata de ocho espectáculos, que comenzarán a las 20:30 horas, siete de los cuales son producciones canarias. Rivero destacó la importancia “de apostar por compañías canarias y convertirlas en el baluarte de esta edición de MEI, donde habrá diferentes propuestas pero todas de una gran calidad que ponemos a disposición de la ciudadanía para su disfrute”. La responsable insular informó de que “las entradas, a un precio general de 12 euros y con descuentos disponibles, ya están a la venta en www.meitenerife.com”.

    El director artístico de Auditorio y de MEI recordó que la programación se tuvo que trasladar de la primavera pasada a este otoño y que “hemos continuado con la voluntad de presencialidad marcada por el Cabildo que caracteriza al teatro en vivo para reformular la programación, donde hay encargos directos y estrenos de obras subvencionadas por el propio Cabildo”. “Al final, presentamos una selección de espectáculos que representan el canon del teatro canario”, añadió José Luis Rivero.

    Mario Vega, director de Unahoramenos Producciones, trae a MEI El crimen de la calle Fuencarral y el estreno de Todo el cielo. Vega puso en valor esta muestra “única en Canarias, que da perspectiva sobre el teatro que se está haciendo” y comentó que el proyecto Moria de teatro inmersivo que pensaban estrenar en primavera se ha pospuesto, dando paso a Todo el cielo. “Estamos muy ilusionados y nerviosos por presentar el martes por primera vez Todo el cielo, una selección de obras de poetas y poetisas de todas las islas canarias”, adelantó Vega.

    Ricardo del Castillo, director Morfema Teatro, estrena en MEI Informe Lope, un proyecto que cuenta con una subvención a producción escénica del Cabildo. Del Castillo agradeció las políticas públicas insulares que dan lugar a este tipo de actividades culturales y explicó, como autor, que estrenan “un texto sobre la obra de Lope de Vega en una línea de trabajo propia que consiste en partir de obras de autores y llegar a otros planteamientos”. “Se ha mostrado a Lope de Vega como feminista y en Informe Lope planteo, mediante un modesto acercamiento a su obra, si para explicar el feminismo hay que acudir a Lope, una voz masculina”, detalló el también dramaturgo y actor.

    Esta programación, que se ha coordinado con los festivales canarios Temudas y Mueca,  llega a la isla a partir de este domingo con una clara vocación local y de la mano de autores como Lluís Pascual, Juan Mayorga o Max Aub, y de textos de Federico García Lorca, Lope de Vega o Benito Pérez Galdós. Muchas de estas representaciones son estrenos o primeras funciones de compañías canarias.

    La segunda edición de MEI tenía previsto desarrollarse del 17 de enero al 3 de mayo de 2020 con el Foco puesto en Argentina pero la crisis sanitaria internacional obligó a cancelar la programación de  marzo, abril y mayo. Esta edición especial se ha adaptado a las circunstancias y mantiene el Romancero gitano, de la Cía. Nuria Espert, y Siete hombres buenos, de 2RC Teatro.

    La programación

    Abre la programación este domingo [día 13] a las 20:30 horas El crimen de la calle Fuencarral, de Unahoramenos. La historia comienza con un fuerte olor a quemado que despertó a los vecinos de la calle Fuencarral de Madrid el 2 de julio de 1888. La policía encontró un cadáver ardiendo y una criada y un perro durmiendo. Benito Pérez Galdós fue el cronista de este polémico suceso real, que acabó en ejecución pública. Ahora, el dramaturgo Fabio Rubiano ha escrito una atractiva dramatización en clave de comedia que dirige Mario Vega. Este espectáculo forma parte de la programación de Teatro El Sauzal.

    El primer estreno de esta edición llegará el martes [día 15] con Todo el cielo, de Unahoramenos, una dramaturgia de poetas canarios realizada por Yeray Rodríguez y dirigida por Mario Vega. Son muchos los poetas que creen que todos escriben el mismo poema. Y así nace Todo el cielo, un viaje a lomos de poemas canarios de diferentes autores y épocas que cobrarán vida juntos, como voces de un coro que hará una sola la canción de tantos.

    Termina la semana Romancero gitano protagonizado por Nuria Espert con dos funciones: el jueves 17 y viernes 18. La apuesta del director de este espectáculo, Lluís Pasqual, consiste en una depurada puesta en escena, con tan solo unas butacas de teatro aderezada. La base de la propuesta es la conferencia que dio García Lorca en 1935 con introducción y comentarios a su Romancero gitano. En escena, los poemas se intercalan con esos comentarios y los recuerdos de Nuria Espert sobre sus trabajos sobre Lorca.

    La recién estrenada obra Siete hombres buenos, de 2RC Teatro, podrá disfrutarse el martes 22. Se trata de la primera obra de Juan Mayorga, premiada con el Accésit Marqués de Bradomín en 1989, que se estrena con esta compañía canaria después de treinta años. Es una ficción sobre un gobierno en el exilio de una defenestrada república después de treinta años. Los ideales han cambiado, las traiciones del pasado vuelven al presente, los intereses personales tiñen este gobierno cuando el tirano es derrocado y surge la posibilidad de volver.

    Al día siguiente, miércoles 23, llegará la adaptación a sala de ¡Valientes!, un espectáculo de Burka Teatro concebido como teatro de calle que se estrena en un formato íntimo. Un itinerario por la evolución de los parques a través de la historia, guiado por una exquisita historiadora, se verá interrumpido por un personaje de la calle: una mujer sintecho que bajo esta apariencia esconde un sorprendente pozo de sabiduría. Juntas harán un viaje hacia la historia de muchas mujeres que desde la antigüedad lucharon por la igualdad de género.

    El segundo estreno absoluto de esta edición tendrá lugar el viernes 25 con Informe Lope, de Morfema Teatro, que recrea el entorno de una misteriosa corporación, en cuyos sótanos se almacenan las obras teatrales de todos los tiempos. Entre ellas, las de Lope de Vega. Ramírez y González son los funcionarios encargados de clasificarla y ponerla a punto para su publicación. El conflicto se desarrolla a partir del tema central que plantea la compañía, que es la manera en que el dramaturgo concibe sus personajes femeninos.

    Fábula del topo, el murciélago y la musaraña, lo nuevo de Delirium Teatro, llega a MEI el día 27. La obra de Miguel Ángel Martínez cuenta las vicisitudes que vivió junto a su familia Pedro Perdomo Pérez, vocal del PSOE en la Casa del Pueblo de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria en los primeros momentos del golpe militar de 1936, donde se convierte primero en objetivo, luego en prófugo y, finalmente, en topo de la represión franquista. Tras 33 años escondido en casa de dos de sus hermanas y amparado por una amnistía, resucita para el mundo en los albores de la Transición.

    Cierra la Edición Especial 2020 San Juan, la nueva propuesta de Teatro La República, una alegoría sobre el exilio de Max Aub. Cuenta el trágico viaje de unos judíos que en 1938 se encuentran embarcados en el San Juan, un antiguo carguero de animales. En permanente peregrinación de país en país, son rechazados en todos los puertos. Aun así les mueve la esperanza de que en algún momento les den el visto bueno para desembarcar en tierra segura.

    Para los espectáculos de MEI existen dos tarifas, la general de 12 euros y la de residentes de El Sauzal de 9 euros. Además, hay disponibles descuentos no acumulables para desempleados: (50%), menores de 30 años (30%), familia numerosa (25%) y estudiantes (10%). Deberá presentarse el documento que acredite este descuento (DNI, DARDE, carné de Familia numerosa, carné de estudiante...) en el momento de acceso a la sala.

    Las entradas ya se pueden adquirir de forma online en www.meitenerife.com, en la taquilla del Teatro El Sauzal 90 minutos antes de cada función de MEI y en la taquilla de Auditorio de Tenerife con cita previa de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 17:00 horas y sábado de 10:00 a 14:00 horas, excepto festivos.

    Auditorio de Tenerife, which is under the Department of Education, Youth, Museums, Culture and Sport of the Cabildo de Tenerife, run by councillor Concepción Rivero, is giving on Sunday the 13th at 12:00 noon the concert El esplendor de un órgano sinfónico. Basque solo performer Loreto Aramendi, principal organist of the Cavaillé Coll organ (1863) at the Basílica de Santa María del Coro in San Sebastián, will play this peculiar instrument, whose pipes are placed on the walls of the Sala Sinfónica. Auditorio de Tenerife guarantees a safe cultural experience thanks to its Contingency Plan against COVID-19 and its Safe Tourism label, both certified by AENOR.

    This is the first engagement this season to enjoy the experience of listening to the Auditorio’s organ, which was built by prestigious organ master Albert Blancafort and his team. It is a 21st century instrument with unique design, sound and stops that emerge from 3,835 pipes, which are placed on the walls of this emblematic auditorium and are played from a console on the stage. 

    On Sunday they are playing an attractive repertoire of Romantic and 20th century works preceded by a famous score by Baroque composer Buxtehude. Musicologist and organ expert Rosario Álvarez explained that this concert “mainly has transcriptions of famous orchestral works, a genre often visited by organists, given that the instrument is particularly suitable to compete against the orchestra as it is multitimbral, which favours this kind of performances”.

    The expert revealed that “we should also mention the presence of French authors like Camille Saint-Saëns, Gabriel Fauré or Charles Tournemire, who are the result of the organ bloom that took place in France in the late 19th century and early 20th century thanks to Cavaillé-Coll instruments and the deep impression left by César Franck in a range of organists of the great Parisian churches and French cathedrals”. 

    For this honorary member of the Real Academia Canarias de Bellas Artes de San Miguel Arcángel “including the small piece by Hungarian György Ligeti in the repertoire provides a counterpoint to the Romantic aesthetics of the compositions by Franz Liszt and Sergej Rachmaninov”.

    Tickets  can be booked on our website here and by calling 902  317 327 Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, except holidays.
