Enrique Arriaga states that "this tool will facilitate recruiting municipal cultural managers"

 

Tenerife Island Council has started to draw up a catalogue for the year 2021 that will contain professional stage and musical performances. According to Enrique Arriaga, councillor for Culture, "we will make this tool available to those municipal authorities who are in charge of implementing those cultural programmes that the Island Council will subsidise".

Arriaga explained that "only those professional performing arts companies or producers that offer cultural productions such as theatre, dance, circus, street arts and music can be registered in this catalogue". The registration shall be carried out through the website www.tenerifeartesescenicas.com. The time frame to register started on Tuesday, 9 March, and the deadline is March 25.

Alejandro Krawietz, the Island's Director of Culture, pointed out that "the budget for this new subsidy issued by Tenerife Island Council for local councils amounts to €450,000”. Regarding how this amount will be distributed, "the Island Council will contribute with the same amount that each municipality will disburse; our aim is that all municipalities have at least €10,000 at their disposal; should that amount not be reached by any of them, the difference would be then transferred to the overall budget". 

Mr Krawietz explained that "this initiative will be managed by the Administrative Service of Culture with the collaboration of Auditorio de Tenerife. We aim to achieve proper administrative coordination that enables us to offer quality programming and to provide greater public access to the stage and musical activities".

The Island Council intends to promote the performing arts and music throughout the island; in this sense, it has developed a guideline to support local councils and facilitate their cultural programming. In recent years, there has been a commitment to producing this catalogue; the last edition for the year 2020 gathered 161 proposals and over 400 activities, many of which were affected by the pandemic.

Giulio Zappa, Roberto Catalano e Izaskun Legarzan protagonizan mañana esta iniciativa

 

El Auditorio de Tenerife, espacio cultural que depende del Área de Cultura del Cabildo que dirige el consejero Enrique Arriaga, ofrece un encuentro online mañana [martes 9] a las 19:00 horas a través del perfil de Facebook de Ópera de Tenerife. Este acto forma parte de las actividades paralelas a la octava edición de Opera (e)Studio, que finaliza con la puesta en escena de Il matrimonio segreto, de Domenico Cimarosa, del 18 al 21 de marzo, una coproducción de Ópera de Tenerife con el Teatro Regio di Parma y Teatro Massimo di Palermo.

El encuentro online, titulado Ilustración y la búsqueda de la felicidad: un matrimonio verdaderamente secreto, será presentado por la fundadora de la Librería de Mujeres de Canarias, Izaskun Legarza, y consistirá en una conversación entre el director de Opera (e)Studio, Giulio Zappa, y el director de escena de Il matrimonio segreto, Roberto Catalano. Esta actividad, que se ofrecerá con traducción simultánea, se podrá seguir únicamente a través del siguiente enlace incluso si no se tiene perfil de Facebook: https://es-es.facebook.com/operadetenerife.

Giulio Zappa (Monza, Italia) es el director del proyecto Opera (e)Studio desde que se puso en marcha en 2013. Completó sus estudios musicales bajo la dirección de Oleg Marshev; se graduó en piano con los máximos honores. Asimismo, se graduó con honores en Lengua y Literatura extranjera por la Universita degli Studi di Milano, con una tesis doctoral sobre la ópera rusa, bajo la supervisión de los profesores Fausto Malcovati y Francesco Degrada. Desde 1996 ha llevado a cabo una intensa actividad de conciertos por todo el mundo, además de ser invitado, frecuentemente, como entrenador vocal y profesor colaborador en numerosos teatros y festivales de Europa y Asia.

Roberto Catalano (Palermo, Italia) se estrena este año en Ópera de Tenerife. En 2002 comenzó a dirigir y escribir espectáculos propios, en 2014 ganó el concurso de directores del Festival Orizzonti de Chiusi y en 2016 trabajó como escritor y director del proyecto de AsLiCo Opera Education, una nueva versión de La bohème (Puccini). En su primera aparición será el responsable de la dirección escénica.

Il matrimonio segreto trasladará al público tinerfeño a la Nueva York de los años 50, donde se encuentra la pastelería Geronimo & Co. especializada en babàs (dulce típico de Nápoles) y regentada por un italiano que extraña su ciudad natal. Su hija menor, Carolina, se ha casado en secreto con Paolino, repartidor de la pastelería y ambos sueñan con protagonizar musicales en Broadway. La idea de Geronimo de casar a sus hijas con grandes señores dará lugar el desarrollo de la trama, que originalmente se ubicaba en la Bolonia del siglo XVIII.

Los cantantes participantes en Opera (e)Studio protagonizarán las cuatro funciones divididos en dos elencos. Así, el lituano Ignas Melnikas y el italiano Francesco Leone, bajos ambos, interpretarán a Geronimo; las soprano italianas Eleonara Nota y Marilena Ruta se pondrán en el papel de Elisetta; la italiana Giulia Mazzola y la alemana Veronika Seghers, las dos sopranos, serán Carolina; Fidalma será interpretado por la italiana Mara Gaudenzi y la francesa Claire Gascoin, mezzosopranos; el español Jan Antem y el chileno Ramiro Maturana han sido elegidos para el papel de Conte Robinson, barítonos, mientras que el turco Bekir Serbest y el italiano Antonio Mandrillo, ambos tenores, asumirán el rol de Paolino.

La dirección musical de esta propuesta artística corre a cargo de Davide Levi, al frente de la Sinfónica de Tenerife. El resto del equipo se completa con el diseñador de escenografía Emanuele Sinisi, la diseñadora de vestuario Ilaria Ariemme y la diseñadora de iluminación Fiammetta Baldiserri.

Las entradas para cualquiera de las cuatro funciones de Il matrimonio segreto se pueden adquirir hasta dos horas antes del comienzo en la página web www.auditoriodetenerife.com y de forma telefónica en el 902 317 327 y en taquilla de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 17:00 horas y sábados de 10:00 a 14:00 horas.

Next week, the cellist Kathleen Balfe will perform ten pieces of women composers that are inspired in texts by women poets.

 

Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councillor of Culture Enrique Arriaga. On Thursday 4th of March at 7:30 pm, music and poetry will combine at the Chamber Hall during the show Tapiz de incertidumbres (Tapestry of Uncertainties). The cellist Kathleen Balfe will offer a programme comprised of ten pieces by contemporary women composers.

Tapestry of uncertainties is a mixed proposal of music and poetry that will take place in an intimate and reflective framework. The cellist will play live music with a pre-recorded electro-acoustic accompaniment and the voice-over narration of poetic texts.

The programme consists of works by ten women composers who were chosen to participate at the workshop "Taller de Compositoras", that was linked to the 18th Festival of Spanish Music Manuel de Falla (2020). Each piece is based on a different poetic text. Thus, the common element is uncertainty expressed and contained in each poem.

The programme consists of: Los tiempos del porvenir (Times to Come) by María José Arenas Martín (1983); Stunt Fall V, by María del Pilar Miralles Castillo (1997); Policronías de las Sibilas (Polychronies of the Sibyls) by Beatriz Arzamendi (1961);  La senda (The Path) by Consuelo Díez (1958); Funambudumbre: Cuando Todo Se Apaga (When Everything Shuts Down) by Dolores Serrano Cueto (1967); Viajar es lo que importa  (Travel is what it's all about) by Anna Bofill Levi (1944); Vivir en Aporesis ... o Turbulencias... (Living with undecidedness...or under turbulence...) by Ana Teruel Medina (1981); Veritas Vincit, by Reyes Oteo (1982), Questo tremito, questo vacillamento, by María del Carmen Asenjo-Marrodán (1978), and Un mundo sin bocas y con olor a desinfectante (A world without mouths that smells to disinfectant), by Diana Pérez Custodio (1970). 

The show is part of the Spanish tour of Ensemble NeoArs Sonora of which Bathlee is a soloist. It is also a co-production of the Andalusian Agency of Cultural Institutions, the Andalusian Regional Department of Culture and Historical Heritage and the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports.

Kathleen Balfe has lived and worked in Spain since 2003, when she began her career with the Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife. In 2007 she won the position of cello soloist at Orquesta Ciudad de Granada, where she is currently a member. She is also a founder member of the contemporary group Ensemble NeoArs Sonora since 2008, year in which the project was conceived.  Thus, Kathleen Balfe has had the chance to play at many festivals and with the most renowned Spanish institutions. 

Tickets can be purchased until two hours before the concert on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com and by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The audience is requested to arrive at the venue well in advance to enter the Auditorium in staggered "waves".

The tickets for this Friday's concert are already sold out. This concert will also be a unique opportunity to listen to the Ukrainian pianist Dmytro Choni

 

Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councillor Enrique Arriaga. On Friday this week [26] at 7:30 pm it will offer a new concert at Auditorio de Tenerife. The conductor Lucía Marín (Linares, 1982) will be at the helm of the island’s ensemble for the first time. Once again during this season, Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife has sold out the tickets for this new concert.

Marín has designed a programme where the Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife will perform the Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21 by Frédéric Chopin with the Ukrainian pianist Dmytro Choni as invited soloist; Rimas infantiles, by María Rodrigo and Dances of Galánta by Zoltán Kodály.

In 1830, Frédéric Chopin prémieres his first public recital with Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21, which earned him national hero status. This score follows the trale of Johann Nepomuk Hummel's concertos, influenced in turn by those of Mozart, giving absolute prominence to the piano - played by Dmytro Choni - with a highly ornamented composition. This concert consists of multiple romantic expressions and different rhythms, ranges that go from intimate landscapes to nationalistic traces, including a mazurka that shapes a light-hearted and luminous finale. 

The Madrid-born María Rodrigo, considered as the first professional Spanish female composer, made numerous incursions into symphonic music, opera, zarzuela and ballet; she also composed short pieces for piano. Rimas infantiles(1929) comprise five fragments that paraphrase well-known popular chorus songs with an elaborate and exuberant orchestration. Her work is backed by a clear educational vocation. This piece is cheerful and simple, full of instrumental colours that reveal the author's ability to handle the orchestra.

Zoltán Kodály composed Dances of Galánta in 1933, evoking his childhood in this northern Hungarian town and paying tribute to the Budapest Philharmonic Society on the occasion of its 80th anniversary. Kodály builds this composition as a skeleton on which this ancient Hungarian dances evoke different pieces of Central European folklore: from the melancholic lassú section in the first bars, to the last, frenetically paced ones and a concluding friss, moving towards jubilant movements. 

Lucía Marín is making her debut at the helm of Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife. She is one of the few Spanish female conductors on the current scene. The Linares-born master has already taken up her post at the helm of the the Spanish National Orchestra, the Spanish Radio Television Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra of Galicia, Symphony Orchestra of Asturias, Málaga Philharmonic Orchestra, Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra, Euskadi Symphony Orchestra, Bilbao Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonic Orchestra of Oviedo, Youth Orchestra of Madrid and Youth Orchestra of the Canary Islands.

From 2013 to 2015, Marín was the principal conductor of the University of Kentucky Philharmonia; from 2012 to 2015she has also conducted the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra Opera Theatre. Her extensive academic training includes a doctorate in conducting from the University of Kentucky, a master's degree in conducting from the University of Illinois, an advanced degree in conducting from Centro Superior de Música of the Basque Country and an advanced degree in piano from the Conservatory of Music of Seville.

Lucía Marín has been distinguished with the 2006 awards of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Santa Isabel de Hungría of Seville, XI International Orchestra Conducting Competition "Mestre Ferríz" 2008, "Andalusians of the Future" Award 2009, "Jaén Joven" Arts Award of the Andalusian Youth Institute 2014, "Cultura Viva" Award under the category revelation artist in 2017, Ideal Culture Prize 2019; she was recently awarded with the "La Bandera de Andalucía" prize 2020.

Dmytro Choni (Kiev, Ukraine 1993) received his first piano lesson at the age of four and began his studies in his hometown with Nina Naiditch and Yuri Kot. He is currently studying at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. The young pianist also received a scholarship from the International Academy of Music of Liechtenstein and regularly participates in the intensive music weeks and other activities held there.

Choni has won several awards such as the Spanish First Prize and Gold Medal at the Paloma O'Shea Santander International Piano Competition 2018, as well as various medals at the Swiss Verbier Festival 2019 or the Italian Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition 2017, the Ukranian International Competition for Young Pianists in Memory of Vladimir Horowitz 2017, the Chinese Suzhou Jinji Lake International Piano Competition 2017 and the San Marino Piano Competition 2016. 

The Ukrainian pianist has given a considerable number of solo recitals and chamber music concerts. Among others, he has performed with the American Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, the Spanish Symphony Orchestra of RTVE, Ensemble Esperanza (Liechtenstein), Republic of San Marino Symphony Orchestra, the Korean Seongnam Philharmonic Orchestra, the Spanish Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Galicia, National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, the Spanish Symphony Orchestra of Castilla y León, the Chinese Suzhou Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra of Dominican Republic, Sinfonieorchester Liechtenstein or the Hungarian Varaždin Chamber Orchestra.

The training will take place between the 11th and the 14th of March.

 

Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council, that is managed by the councillor of Culture Enrique Arriaga. The auditorium offers a dramaturgy workshop held by José Padilla a Canary Islands's author and winner of a Max Award for Performing Arts. The title of the training course is 'What have you done with the scissors?' and it will be held between the 11th and the 14th of March. The registration is now open. 

This 20 hours workshop is recommended for professional and amateur playwrights; it will be held from 10 am to 4 pm (with one-hour lunch break each day). The registration will close on the 26th of February and it can be done by filling a registration form at the website of Auditorio de Tenerife here. Having written, published, self-published or staged a play, having attended workshops and courses in playwriting will be considered an asset. The workshop price is €30 for professionals and €15 for students.

During the workshop many topics will be approached, starting with the first stumbling block that writers have to face: the topic. José Padilla explains that "it is almost unavoidable having to face a heavy burden which is rather linked to the image that we want to show the world of ourselves as creators, than what we really want to tell. Thus, it is much more practical to search through imagination than to impose a topic. During this workshop the author's imagination, which ultimately generates situations and dramatic texts, will be explored. This will be the starting point to find a genuine story to tell. 

José Padilla (Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 1976) has a degree in Textual Interpretation by the Spanish Royal School of Dramatic Arts. He continued his training with professionals like Declan Donnellan, Simon Stephens, Wadji Mouawad, José Ramón Fernández, Alfredo Sanzol and Vicente Fuentes. Among other recognitions, he won the prize Max Award for Performing Arts for his work Dados, the 'Almagro Off' award for Perra Vida, the prize 'Ojo Crítico de Teatro' awarded by Radio Nacional de España or the prize 'Premio Réplica a Mejor Autoría Canaria' for his work Porno Casero. Among other shows, he conducts Haz clic aquí for Centro Dramático Nacional, La isla púpura and Las crónicas of Peter Sanchidrián, both for Kamikaze Producciones; he currently writes and directs a trilogy for the company Ventrículo Veloz: Papel, Por la boca and Dados. As a classic’s versioner, he has focused his career on Shakespeare and Cervantes. His works have been played in prestigious theatres like The Moscow Art Theatre, the Globe Theatre of London or La Comedie Française of Paris. He has taught workshops for Centro Dramático Nacional, Instituto Cervantes, Sala Beckett (Barcelona) or Compañía Nacional de Teatro Clásico.

Cimarosa's amusing opera will be performed from 18 to 21 March 2021.

 

Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the councillor of Culture Enrique Arriaga. Tomorrow 17th of February, tickets go on sale to enjoy  Il matrimonio segreto, the new proposal of Opera Tenerife. From 18 to 21 March 2021, the eighth edition's singers of Opera (e)Studio will take the stage at the Symphonic Hall to perform this opera buffa by Domenico Cimarosa.

‘Il matrimonio segreto’ is a co-production driven by Auditorio de Tenerife together with Teatro Regio di Parma and Teatro Massimo di Palermo. The musical direction of this artistic proposal will be provided by Davide Levi, in charge of the OST (Tenerife Symphony Orchestra) while Roberto Catalano will be on charge of the stage management. The rest of the team is completed by the set designer Emanuele Sinisi, the costume designer Ilaria Ariemme and the lighting designer Fiammetta Baldiserri.

This opera is a dramma giocoso in two acts with music by Domenico Cimarosa, on a libretto by Giovanni Bertati and based on the play “The Clandestine Marriage by George Colman the Elder and David Garrick. The Italian premiere of the opera was given at the Hofburgtheater of Vienna on the 7th February 1792 before the Leopold II. The emperor liked the performance so much that, after inviting the whole company to dinner, he asked for a complete encore of the opera. 

It is one of Cimarosa's most interesting and best-known pieces, a clear example of opera buffa from the 18thcentury. The plot is full of impossible situations, disguises and happy endings, where a wealthy merchant, eager to move up the social ladder, seeks to marry off his two daughters to noblemen. However, the businessman is unaware that one of his daughters has secretly married one of his employees. This impending conflict is spiced up with particularly original music, which stylistically falls somewhere between Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti. The stage manager and his team set the whole plot in New York in the 1950s.

The cast comprises twelve singers that participate in the current Opera (e)Studio's edition, an education academy directed by Giulio Zappa that is aimed at artists for their comprehensive music enhancement. The young artists have been selected from 195 candidates of 36 nationalities. They have already spent three weeks on the island where they receive intensive training in singing and acting. The singers, who are aged between 22 and 31, will form two casts each comprised of six roles of ‘Il matrimonio segreto’.

Both basses Ignas Melnikas, Lithuanian, and Francesco Leone, Italian, will play Geronimo. Both Italian sopranos Eleonara Nota and Marilena Ruta will play the role of Elisetta. Both sopranos, Giulia Mazzola, Italian, and Veronika Seghers, German, will play the role of Carolina. Fidalma will be played by both mezzo-sopranos Mara Gaudenzi, Italian, and Claire Gascoin, French.

Auditorio de Tenerife garantiza la realización de esta actividad con la transformación del formato, que este curso no será presencial

 

El Auditorio de Tenerife, espacio cultural que depende del área de Cultura del Cabildo que dirige el consejero Enrique Arriaga, abre el plazo de inscripción del proyecto de Teatro en la Escuela 2020/2021 para las compañías de artes escénicas de la isla. Como novedad, el formato de esta actividad del Área Educativa y Social del Auditorio se ha transformado en no presencial para poder garantizar su ejecución.

Este proyecto llevará durante el presente curso escolar 200 representaciones de 20 obras grabadas de teatro, danza y artes del movimiento a los centros educativos de la isla, que se completará con una guía didáctica y encuentros virtuales con los intérpretes.

Las bases para la selección de compañías de teatro y danza de la isla ya están publicadas en la página web www.tenerifeartesescenicas.com y el plazo de inscripción está abierto hasta el 5 de marzo. El 17 de marzo se publicará la lista definitiva de las compañías seleccionadas y el 24 del mismo mes comenzarán las grabaciones en el Auditorio de Tenerife.

Auditorio de Tenerife acordará con los centros educativos de la isla 10 representaciones de cada obra elegida, de entre 45 y 75 minutos, que podrán estar dirigidas al alumnado Educación Infantil, Primaria, Secundaria, Bachillerato o de ciclos formativos.

Next week he will play this organ, unique in the world, playing works by César Franck and Charles Marie Widor.

 

Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Councilt that is managed by the councillor of Culture Enrique Arriaga. Next week the Basque musician Esteban Landart will offer at the Auditorium the organ concert Mirada a un programa histórico (A Look at a Historical Programme). The programme includes works by César Franck and Charles Marie Widor. This Sunday [21] from 12:00 noon onwards, the organist will play the colossal and unique instrument housed in Auditorio de Tenerife.

The repertoire is carried out in collaboration with the Royal Canarian Academy of Fine Arts San Miguel Arcángel. The title of this repertoire alludes to a real event that inspired this concert: on 1 October 1878, one of the great organs by the famous builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll was inaugurated at the Concert Hall of the Trocadéro Palace in Paris, built for the World's Fair of that year. For that solemn occasion, works were commissioned to Caesar Franck, the organist of the Sainte Clotilde Church, and Charles Marie Widor, organist at the Temple of Saint Sulpice.

Musicologist Rosario Álvarez explains that "both musicians performed their own compositions that evening: the so-called 'Three Pieces' ('Fantasy', 'Cantabile', and 'Heroic Piece') of the former and the 'Symphony for Organ No. 6' of the latter, who was a composer and organist noted for having transferred the orchestral genre of the Symphony to the organ”. “The organ of our Auditorium, with its four keyboards and rich registration, among which is the human voice required by Franck for his 'Fantasy', lends itself like no other to the interpretation of this suggestive romantic repertoire."

This second organ concert offered by the Auditorium will be played by Esteban Landart, who is also organ teacher at the Conservatory Maurice Ravel of Bayonne (France) and at the School of Music Musikene, Basque country. He has published several studies and articles in many French and Spanish publications on subjects related to pedagogy, organ building, organ performance and musical analysis.

Landart combines teaching with his active career as organist in Europe and the United States, where he performs at major music festivals. He currently works as coordinator of the Technical Commission for the Conservation and Restoration of Organs and Harmoniums of the Diocese of San Sebastian (Spain).

The Auditorium's organ was built by prestigious organ builder Albert Blancafort and his team. It is a 21stcentury instrument that is unique not only because of its design, but also its sound and registration. The sounds come from 3,835 pipes that are housed in the walls of the emblematic Symphony Hall, which are controlled by the organist from on-stage through the console and the four keyboards that he can play. In addition, external keyboards can be added such as the positive organ designed by Blancafort.

Tickets can be purchased on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com until two hours before the concert starts. You can also purchase your tickets by phone dialling 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. They can also be obtained by going to the box office or by appointment.  Appointments can be requested on www.auditoriodetenerife.com/contact-us  or by dialling 922 568 625.
