Auditorio de Tenerife has placed itself at the same level as other national theatres. It has managed to go beyond Spanish borders through Opera de Tenerife, leading international opera productions of the highest level. This was possible in collaboration with other European and Latin-American cultural centres. The team of Opera de Tenerife works on this daily challenge to prepare every year larger projects and offer greater excellence, through its seasons, combining classic titles and contemporary proposals.

Ópera de Tenerife season includes Manos a la Ópera  (Hands-on Opera) and Ópera en Familia (Family Opera), 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. The season is complemented with performances for the whole family, activities and actions to generate new audiences.

Ópera de Tenerife is an initiative of the Cabildo de Tenerife (the goverment of the island) -through Auditorio de Tenerife-, sponsored by the Instituto Canario de Desarrollo Cultural of the Government of Canary Islands and the Instituto Nacional de Artes Escénicas y Música INAEM of the Government of Spain.

Featured by regional singers, the audience will travel through this comedy to the North American station NBC of the 40s

The Auditorio de Tenerife has programmed the chamber opera The old maid and the thief which was first premièred in Spain by Opera de Tenerife a year ago. The performances take place in the Chamber Hall on the 21, 22, 28 and 29 of January at 7:30 p.m. The tickets have a single price of 20 Euros and just 5 Euros for audiences under 30 years of age.

This opera, a comedy of errors by Gian Carlo Menotti, was commissioned by the North American station NBC, which debuted it on the airwaves in April 1939 with success that later took it to the stage. This staged chamber opera will transform the Chamber Hall into a radio station from the 1940s to bring back its first broadcast. At the same time, it introduces the public to the world that Menotti wrote about, a world full of moral dilemmas and lots of fun.

Alicia Peraza is in charge of the stage direction and stage design thanks to the tools of radio: live music, sound effects, and the talent of the singers. On the other hand, the pianist Javier Lanis is the musical director of Menotti’s composition. Leo Martínez has designed the costumes for this production by Tenerife Opera and Hugo Carugatti is in charge of the lighting design.

The cast is made up of regional singers from the Canary Islands. The mezzo-soprano Silvia Zorita will be Miss Todd, the baritone Fernando Campero will play Bob, the soprano Candelaria González will play the maid, Laetitia, and the soprano Estefanía Perdomo will play the role of the neighbour, Miss Pinkerton.

The two actors in this opera are Joel Hernández, who will play the radio soundman, and Javier Socorro, who will be the presenter of the evening. Likewise, the stage manager Luis López Tejedor and the pianist Javier Lanis, who will play Menotti's pieces, round up the cast respectively.

This piece, inspired by the opera buffa of the 18th century, takes place in a city where very intimate and powerful desires, gossip, and secrets are hidden under an apparently picturesque and calm veil.

The simple and routine life of a single middle-aged woman (Miss Todd), who shares her days of knitting and gossip with her friend (Miss Pinkerton), is turned upside down when a beggar knocks on her door, the handsome Bob. Miss Todd and her maid Laetitia quickly fall in love with the beggar and take him in under the guise of Steve, Miss Todd's cousin, despite learning that he could be a convict who has escaped from prison, accused of stealing. When their suspicions grow, the plot twists begin.

Opera de Tenerife is an initiative organised by the Island Council through the Auditorio de Tenerife with the collaboration of the ICDC (Regional Institute of Cultural Development) and the INAEM (National Institute of Performing Arts and Music) 

Tickets can be purchased at a single price of €20 on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 17:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 14:00 p.m. Check the special discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, unemployed and large families.

In this journey through opera, zarzuela and Broadway musicals she will be accompanied by performers such as the soprano Yolanda Auyanet

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. On Saturday, 10th December, at 7.30 p.m., the Symphony Hall will host the opera gala Nancy Fabiola y sus invitados (Nancy Fabiola and her guests). The evening will offer a musical journey through the career of the renowned mezzo-soprano Nancy Fabiola Herrera, who will perform alongside several artists she has invited for the occasion and the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra.

This Opera de Tenerife event, the last of the year, will feature the musical direction of José Miguel Pérez-Sierra and the voices of sopranos Yolanda Auyanet and Eglise Gutiérrez, the bass Rubén Amoretti, the tenor Ramón Vargas, the baritone José Carbó, the bandoneonist and singer Leonel Gasso and the bailaora(flamenco dancer) María del Mar Moreno.

“Along the journey in life I have met many people and creating a list of guests for the gala wasn´t an easy task” acknowledges Nancy Fabiola Herrera. The Canarian mezzo-soprano who starred in The House of Bernarda Alba in October 2021 with the Opera of Tenerife, acknowledges that “they are all great artists who became soulmates and they will attend the gala from Sydney, Mexico, Uruguay and Spain to share a magical night of music and friendship together”.OperaTF2223 NancyFabiola CabeceraNews 1080x1080px

The repertoire will offer a journey through opera, zarzuela, tango and Broadway musical courtesy of Carmen, the gypsy lady by Bizet, which led Nancy Fabiola Herrera to travel around the world and marked a turning point in her career which has lasted for 35 years. “This very special programme speaks of my life, my favourite roles, the constant curiosity to explore different genres, of meeting with friends, of encountering love, and death to be reborn again” announces the singer.

During this biographical gala there will be performances of operas such as Carmen, Norma, Madama Butterfly and Samson and Delilah, but also well-known melodies from the zarzuelas Luisa Fernanda and La Revoltosa, several tangos and even the musical West Side Story will be present. “Each piece has a meaning and each of the artists accompanying me have left a deep impression on my heart” outlines the mezzo-soprano who is inviting the public on this “journey of emotions through some of the most beautiful pages of music in existence”.

Nancy Fabiola Herrera is acclaimed by the public and specialist critics for the “beauty of her voice, her outstanding musicality and her dominating stage presence”. Having performed in over 50 roles, the Spanish mezzo-soprano is one of the most significant performers at present. In 2018 she received the award for an entire career from the magazine Ópera Actual. She is an Adoptive Daughter of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and of the Island of Gran Canaria.

She was acclaimed by the public and critics for her “mesmerising” performance of Carmen, which took her to the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, Arena di Verona, Bolshoi, Caracalla, Berlin, Munich, Dresden, Sydney and Japan, among many others.

Her recent performances notably include, as a minimum, Don Carlo, at the MET; Roberto Devereux, at the Teatro de la Maestranza; Adriana Lecouvreur, in Oviedo; her show Alma mía, alongside the Septet of soloists from Valencia; Il trovatore, in Las Palmas, and the recording of Goyescas / La vida breve with the BBC in London, among others. Her upcoming projects include the Third Symphony by Mahler, with the OFGC; La vida breve, with the OCNE; Trato de favor, by Lucas Vidal and Boris Izaguirre (global premiere), at the Teatro de la Zarzuela; Requiem, by Verdi, with the ORTVE, and Medée, by Cherubini, at the Teatro Real in Madrid.

The set of Verdi's opera, which dates from 1913, has been restored and can be enjoyed on 22, 24 and 26 November

 

Auditorio de Tenerife presents Un ballo in maschera (A Masked Ball) by Giuseppe Verdi. This co-production between the Opera of Tenerife and the Teatro Regio di Parma will be shown next week in the Symphony Hall, on 22, 24 and 26 November, at 7:30 p.m. The details of this show were announced by the island director of Culture of the Council of Tenerife, Alejandro Krawietz, the stage director, Marina Bianchi, and the musical director, Alessandro D’Agostini, accompanied by the cast.

Alejandro Krawietz stated that presenting this title “is cause for enormous excitement”. “Over the last few seasons, we have opened up space for contemporary work while maintaining repertoire works like Un ballo in maschera by Verdi. This opera is being programmed for the first time at the Auditorio”, explained the island director, who highlighted the stage design, “restored for the occasion, which dates to 1913, it is a work by the renowned Italian stage designer Giuseppe Carmignani”.

This staging is by the director Marina Bianchi, for whom it is “an honour to be in this opera, which took shape before the pandemic based on the stage design found in the Teatro Regio di Parma”. I have been working and in contact with this world for a long time.  I have worked with great operatic artists. As a result of my love for European tradition and culture, I was commissioned with this management”, stated the maestro who asserts that this is a “story of love and death that, through tradition, will make us dream”.

Alessandro D'Agostini, will be in charge of musical direction and conducting the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. He agrees with the words of Bianchi and reinforces that “tradition makes us dream”. The maestro stated that the version of the score he chose was the critical one due to its characteristics, especially because of the nuances it offers. “I am grateful for the involvement and work of the soloists, orchestra, choir and all the staff of the Auditorium for making this range of musical colours possible, which the public will note in the three shows” he added.

The team is completed by Michele Cosentino, assistant of Bianchi and head of choreography; Leila Fteita, in charge of the stage design; Lorena Marin, who created the costumes, and Andrea Borelli, in charge of the lighting design for this historic proposal. 

The cast is formed by the tenor José Bros, who plays governor Riccardo; the baritone Sergey Kaydalov, who plays Renato, the governor’s secretary and confidant, and the soprano Monica Zanettin, who embodies and provides the voice of Amelia, the wife of Renato who is in love with Riccardo. Also, the witch and fortune-teller Ulrica will come to life through the contralto Enkelejda Shkoza, while the soprano Sofía Esparza will be Oscar, the governor’s page. 

The bass range signers, Gianni Giuga, Eugenio Di Lieto and Nicolò Donini, will play Silvano, Samuel and Tom, respectively. Lastly, the tenor Blagoj Nacoski will be both a judge and a servant. These voices will be joined by those of the choir Coro Titular Ópera de Tenerife-Intermezzo and the participation of dancers from the dance centre Centro Internacional de Danza de Tenerife.

Premiered at the Teatro Apollo di Roma in 1859, Un ballo in maschera is perhaps one of the most complete and beautiful operas by the Italian genius. The action, which consists of three acts, is based on the assassination by a gentleman from the court in 1792 of King Gustav III of Sweden, an enlightened despot who became an enemy of the nobility due to his reforms. The story has many of the audience’s favourite ingredients: forbidden love, terrifying locations, revenge, deaths and dark and marginal characters like Ulrica.

Subject to censorship on several occasions during the composition process, the artistic proposal of Verdi and Somma went through several versions before it could finally be premiered after circumventing the idea of an assassination in a European kingdom by moving the setting of the story to colonial Boston and changing the name of the characters. 

Previously, with the same historical inspiration, in 1833 the writer Eugène Scribe prepared the libretto of a historic opera for the musician Daniel François Esprit Auber, entitled Gustave III ou Le Bal masqué (Gustave III or the Masked Ball), which kept some names of real historical characters in the midst of a plot in which the rest of the content is imagined. Ten years later, with the same plot, Salvatore Cammarano wrote the text of the opera Il reggente by Mercadante. The opera by Verdi known as “the Boston story” is the most well-known and performed version.

The tickets are available on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. Tickets for the under 30s cost just 5 euros and there are also special discounts for students, unemployed and large families.

Lope de Vega's play is presented as a total show with orchestral music including funk, hip-hop, and even a bolero

 

Auditorio de Tenerife is the second institution in Spain to include the opera Fuenteovejuna in its lyric season. The first performance takes place tomorrow [Tuesday 18], with further shows on Thursday [20th] and Saturday [22nd], all of them in the Symphony Hall at 7:30 p.m. This opera, which is based on the Spanish Golden Age classic by Lope de Vega, has a score by composer Jorge Muñiz that includes urban sounds such as funk, hip hop, and even a bolero.

The Opera of Oviedo Foundation commissioned Muñiz, the first Grand Prize of the European Young Composer, to adapt the play Fuenteovejuna as an opera to mark the 400th anniversary of the creation of Lope de Vega's work. The world premiere of this adaptation with a libretto by Almuzara took place in Asturias in 2018. 

The Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, conducted by maestro Santiago Serrate, and the nine solo singers are joined by thirty singers of the choir 'Coro Titular Ópera de Tenerife-Intermezzo' and the extras. The stage direction is by Miguel del Arco, winner of the 2017 National Theatre Award, and, for the shows in Tenerife, Raúl Vázquez will be in charge of stage revival direction. 

The stage design was by Paco Azorín, while the costumes were devised by Sandra Espinosa. The lighting direction which can be enjoyed in the Symphony Hall is by Juanjo Llorens. As for the cast, the soprano María Miró will be Laurencia, the daughter of the mayor of Fuenteovejuna. Her sweetheart, Frondoso, will be played by the tenor Antonio Gandía. The bass Felipe Bou will play the municipal ruler, while the baritone Damián del Castillo will be transformed into the ruthless commander Fernán Goméz. The bass-baritone Fernando Latorre will provide the voice of his assistant. 

The roles of the villagers Mengo, Pascuala, and Jacinta will be performed by the tenor David Astorga, the soprano Isabella Gaudí and the mezzo-soprano Marina Pardo, respectively. The tenor Juan Noval-Moro will play the magistrate who will issue a judgment on the town. 

This opera, in three acts, shows that some questions posed by Lope de Vega have remained valid four centuries later: the united force of a social mass under the repression of the established power and corruption. With this work, Muñiz ratifies his commitment to social issues.

The shows takes place next week and will be attended by the composer and librettist

 

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife opens the opera season 2022-2023 with Fuenteovejunabased on the Spanish Golden Age classic by Lope de Vega. The performances take place in the Symphony Hall on the 18, 20 and 22 of October at 7:30 p.m. The tickets and passes for five titles of the season are still available. The details of the production were announced today [Monday 10th] by the island’s minister for Culture of Tenerife Council, Enrique Arriaga, together with the opera’s composer, Jorge Muñiz, the musical director, Santiago Serrate, and the director of stage revivals, Raúl Vázquez.

Enrique Arriaga recalled that “not long ago the composer Jorge Muñiz received a commission from the Opera of Oviedo Foundation. He adapted the opera Fuenteovejuna to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the work by Lope de Vega with one of the masterpieces of the Spanish Golden Age”. The world premiere of this adaptation with a libretto by Javier Almuzara took place in Asturias in 2018. “The Auditorium of Tenerife will be the second venue to offer the performance of this contemporary work with a very topical subject” highlighted Arriaga.

Arriaga acknowledged that “we are delighted to open the season of the Opera of Tenerife with this contemporary proposal which is in line with the aim established last year to reach everyone: opera experts, young people and those not so seasoned in opera”. The Tenerife Symphony Orchestra and the solo singers are joined by the choir ‘Coro Titular Ópera de Tenerife-Intermezzo’ and the extras. “It promises great success on the stage” announced the minister.

Winner of the European Grand Prize for Young Composers, the composer Jorge Muñiz explained that “programming new work in opera seasons is what we contemporary creators aspire to do in order to communicate today”. “Fuenteovejuna is by Lope de Vega, but its language has been updated by the librettist Javier Almuzara and I hope that it directly talks to the audience”. As for the music, Muñiz highlighted that “they are going to hear hip hop, funk, merengue and even a bolero during the work, but he also talked about tradition, and they are going to recognise characters who are shaped like in Mozart operas in a modest tribute”.

Santiago Serrate will lead the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra as musical director. “It is the first time that I have conducted this orchestra which I have known for a long time. I must say that it is a luxury and we are going to head into this premiere with great naturalness” explained the maestro. For Serrate, “the Opera of Tenerife is a star that really dazzles the global scene. What makes it different is its programming: opening the season with a contemporary opera from four years ago says a lot about the Auditorium”. “The All for one, Fuenteovejuna in this work is very topical because in the pandemic we saw that together we could beat it and the same will happen with the war” explained the maestro. He stated that people would hear live music “that will touch their hearts”. “Our job is not only entertainment, culture educates, it shapes people, and this opera poses very relevant questions” stated the musician.

The stage direction is by Miguel del Arco, winner of the 2017 National Theatre Award, and, for the shows in Tenerife, Raúl Vázquez will be in charge of stage revival direction. “I feel that the Opera of Tenerife is like my second home and I am delighted to return on this occasion with a stage direction created by Del Arco that is very demanding, both in terms of staging and music” announced Vázquez, who added that “I hope the public will not miss the chance to see this work in an opera format because it will not fail to make an impression and all of our work and effort will be seen in this total spectacle”.

The stage design was by Paco Azorín, while the costumes were devised by Sandra Espinosa. The lighting direction which can be enjoyed in the Symphony Hall is by Juanjo Llorens. As for the cast, the soprano María Miró will be Laurencia, the daughter of the mayor of Fuenteovejuna. Her sweetheart, Frondoso, will be played by the tenor Antonio Gandía.
