2020/21 SEASON

This season, more than ever, we are happy to present the titles included in the 20/21 Ópera de Tenerife season. 

We return to public activity with Donizetti’s Requiem on 24 October to pay tribute to the victims of this health crisis. Next, we are recovering one of the most eagerly anticipated productions we had to cancel last season, Lucrezia Borgia, a co-production of Auditorio de Tenerife, Teatro Comunale di Bologna, Ópera de Oviedo and Teatro de la Maestranza, featuring soprano Yolanda Auyanet in the lead role, to be performed on 24, 26 and 28 November. To end the year, Ópera de Tenerife is staging a Gala Lírica on 12 December. Again we shall focus on new opera talents this year through the work of Opera (e)Studio, which this season is putting on  Il matrimonio segreto with music by composer Domenico Cimarosa and libretto in Italian by Giovanni Bertati. We have not overlooked the youngest, who show us the intergenerational power of opera every year. We are reviving for them one of the most memorable productions: Handel’s Rinaldo In addition, zarzuela’s fans can enjoy an Antología in June and to end the season, we are holding this year’s Concurso Internacional de Canto Ópera de Tenerife [Tenerife International Opera Singing Competition].

In compliance with the safety measure in place and due to reduced seating capacity and to keep social distancing, this season we cannot offer subscriptions. Instead, we shall offer our 19/20 season subscribers a priority sale period with a 15% discount on the tickets for each title. Standard tickets will be made available in coordination with the health authorities. 

We hope we can enjoy this new adventure together.

Tickets are sold out. This will be the second performance of the twelve artists, after the premiere they had yesterday [Tuesday 23] at the venue Paraninfo of the University of La Laguna (ULL). The concert was attended, among others, by Enrique Arriaga, Councillor for Culture of Tenerife Island Council; Juan Albino Méndez, Vice-Rector for Culture, and Alejandro Krawietz, Island Director of Culture.

All twelve singers are currently members of this training programme's edition aimed at artists for their comprehensive music enhancement. The training programme is organised by the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council through Opera Tenerife.

Arriaga was satisfied with the show. "Considering the audience's response, I think it has been shown that the recital has been well received during this first chance to listen to the international singers, who are being trained on our island" declares the councillor of Culture, who is convinced that the singers will repeat their success in Adeje. He is also confident that there will be a good response to the four performances of Il matrimonio segreto the opera that these artists will offer from the 18th to the 21st of March.

For his part, Alejandro Krawietz highlighted the collaboration with the University of La Laguna: “We always find help every time we come to these facilities. This recital has become a classic in its season. Moreover, there has been an excellent response from the public who, in these difficult times, continue to demand cultural offerings."

The Vice-Rector for Culture thanked Auditorio de Tenerife for "once again having chosen the venue Paraninfo to host the presentation of these young opera singers on the island" and was very happy with the quality of the show. 

The Adeje lyrical recital will consist of thirteen pieces, three of them by Rossini, corresponding to his operas Il barbiere de Siviglia, La cambiale di matrimonio and La Cenerentola; two by Puccini (Edgar and La Rondine); one by Donizetti (Don Pasquale), one by Monteverdi (L’incoronazione di Poppea), one by Bizet (Les pêcheurs de perles), one by Rachmaninov (Aleko) and four by Cimarosa, from the opera Il matrimonio segreto that will be performed from the 18th to the 21st of March at the Symphonic Hall of Auditorio de Tenerife.

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. Both baritones, the Spaniard Jan Antem and the Chilean Ramiro Maturana have been chosen for the role of the Count Robinson, while both tenors Bekir Serbest, Turkish, and Antonio Mandrillo, Italian, will play the role of Paolino.

This programme for young artists is aimed at offering highly specialised training on international lyrical scene, and acts as a showcase and springboard for many of them. Opera (e)Studio also provides visibility for the technical production work of Auditorio de Tenerife. The Auditorium obtained both in 2019 and 2020 the recognition of the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission, which reflects development, sustainability, job creation and training.

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.
