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.

ˋFuenteovejuna´ opens the new series in October and it ends in June 2023 with the symphonic poem `Tannhäuserˊ

 

The Council of Tenerife is presenting the new season at the Tenerife Opera, where justice, vengeance and passion star in the proposals. The details of the seven titles, which begin in October 2022 and run until June 2023, were provided by the vice-president and councillor for Culture of the Council of Tenerife, Enrique Arriaga, and the island director of Culture, Alejandro Krawietz.

The island’s Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga explained that "the commitment to an offer that mixes contemporary titles with proposals from classical composers has been maintained, thus making it possible to reach all audiences, from complete beginners to absolute purists, also including our tourists, who really value our cultural offer”. “It is important for us that the audience continues to grow and that is why we are continuing the Family Opera programme, where titles are adapted for the youngest audiences" stated the councillor who emphasised a maxim of his department. “Culture is safe and necessary”.

Alejandro Krawietz recalled that "in the season that has just ended we began to open a line of searching in the contemporary opera scene in order to bring citizens closer to different ways of staging classical titles as well as the contemporary languages of current works”. The new season continues in that vein, with "the objective of Tenerife Opera to begin to include a wide range of opera expression" according to the island director.

This new offer includes the productions Fuenteovejuna, Un ballo in mascheraThe old maid and the thiefDer Zwerg (The Dwarf)The little sweep and the symphonic poem Tannhäuser, as well as the traditional opera gala that brings together seven artists around the figure of Nancy Fabiola Herrera.

The season begins with Fuenteovejuna, by Jorge Muñiz, a contemporary opera in Spanish with a libretto by Javier Almuzara, that will take place on 18, 20 and 22 October in the Symphony Hall. This opera, in three acts, premièred in Asturias in 2018 and is the product of a commission by the Opera of Oviedo to the composer to celebrate the 400th year anniversary of the creation of Lope de Vega´s work, one of the most outstanding texts of the Spanish Golden Age. The musical direction is provided by Santiago Serrate and the stage direction is by Miguel del Arco. The cast is formed by María Miró, Antonio Gandía, Felipe Bou, Luis Cansino, David Astorga, Isabella Gaudí, Belén Elvira and Fernando Latorre.

José Bros, Sergey Kaydalov, Monica Zanettin, Enkeledja Shkoza and Sofía Esparza form the cast that recounts the assassination of King Gustav of Sweden at a masked ball at the hands of a gentleman from the court.

The opera gala this season revolves around the figure of the mezzosoprano Nancy Fabiola Herrera, who has brought together a series of guests at the Auditorio de Tenerife to celebrate 25 years since her debut in the leading role in Carmen. On 10 December, the Symphony Hall will have Yolanda Auyanet, Liping Zhang, Rubén Amoretti, Ramón Vargas, José Carbó, Leonel Gasso and María del Mar Moreno, under the musical direction of José Miguel Pérez-Sierra.

The first title of 2023 will be performed on 21, 22, 28 and 29 of January and will be the revival of the chamber opera The old maid and the thief, which the Tenerife Opera premièred in Spain in January. It is a work commissioned by the American radio station NBC to the musician Gian Carlo Menotti, who also wrote the libretto. It premièred in 1939 on the radio with great success and later Menotti produced an adaptation to stage it, which took place for the first time in Philadelphia in 1941. The musical direction of this production will be under Javier Lanis, with stage direction by Alicia Peraza. The cast of four singers is formed by Silvia Zorita, Fernando Campero, Candelaria González and Estefanía Perdomo, who share the stage with the actors Javier Socorro and Joel Hernández, and the stage manager Luis López Tejedor. 

On 7, 9 and 11 March, the opera Der Zwerg (The Dwarf), the most emblematic work by the Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky will come to the Auditorio de Tenerife for the very first time.

The 2022-2023 series of the Tenerife Opera will conclude with the symphonic poem in three movements for choir and orchestra, Tannhäuser, a work by Pedro Halffter that took inspiration from the opera of the same name by Richard Wagner. It will be Halffter himself who returns to the Auditorio de Tenerife as musical director on the nights of 9 and 10 June.

As usual, the Sinfónica de Tenerife (Tenerife Symphony Orchestra) will provide the music in all the productions, except for the chamber opera, which will be performed by Javier Lanis on the piano. Once again this year, the Opera Choir of Tenerife will also have a key role in the season.

The performances take place next week

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island's Council that is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. Now, it presents Les contes d'Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann)The Symphony Hall will be transformed into a large and colourful circus, offering two performances of this opera by Jacques Offenbach on the 23rd and 24th of April. It is adapted for all audiences and is ideal for those adults who want to get introduced to the world of opera. 

This adapted version for all audiences transforms Hoffmann into a circus ringmaster who looks back at all the far-fetched stories he has experienced in the past and that have led him to consider closing the business. A bewitched witch, a doll that is out of control and an unsteady tightrope walker star in these stories where an evil force is working to torment Mr Hoffmann. This fun experience is completed by three-dimensional glasses that will be handed out to the audience.

Les contes d’Hoffmann is a revival of this production by the Auditorio de Tenerife which premièred in 2017. It returns with the musical direction of Rubén Díez, conducting the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra and Raúl Vázquez in charge of staging and scene design. The equipment to craft this adaptation is completed with colourful costumes by Leo Martínez and magical lighting provided by Miguel Ponce.

The prolific composer Offenbach wrote 102 stage works, notably including “The Tales of Hoffmann”, which he spent the last years of his life working on without being able to see the finished work. To do so, he based the project on the work Les contes fantastiques d'Hoffmann which was written by the man who would go on to become an opera librettist, Jules Barbier, and the writer with whom he wrote many librettos together, Michel Carré. 

Hoffmann is none other than Ernst Theodore Amadeus, E. T. A., Hoffmann, one of the leading exponents of romanticism in German literature. Barbier and Carré chose three of the fairy tales by the Prussian writer relating to the pursuit of impossible love for the representation of work in the Odéon Theatre in Paris in 1851, which Offenbach had seen and which he drew inspiration from. 

The cast will be led by the tenor David Astorga as Hoffmann. The sopranos Maria Rita Combattelli, Elvira Padrino and Inés Lorans, the mezzo-soprano Daniela Prado, the tenor César Arrieta and the baritone Jacobo Ochoa complete the list of singers who bring to life the fun characters surrounding the story of the protagonist.

Saturday's performance (23 April) takes place at 6:00 p.m., while Sunday's performance (24 April) is a morning session that starts at 12:00 noon. The tickets are sold at a general price of 10 Euro, a price to which special discounts for the unemployed (50%), large families (25%), season ticket holders (15%) and audience under 30 years of age (5 Euro) are applicable. 

The tickets available on the website are already sold out. The last available tickets are on sale at the ticket office 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 or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 during the same schedules. By purchasing tickets, you accept the measures implemented by the cultural centre to combat COVID-19, such as the correct use of masks. All of the measures, as well as the contingency plan certified by AENOR, can be consulted on the Auditorium's website.

The shows of this Spanish opera start tomorrow (Tuesday 22), with further shows on Thursday (24th) and Saturday (26th)

 

The magical realism arrives at Tenerife with the première in Spain of “Florencia in the Amazon”. The opera, by the Mexican composer Daniel Catán (1949-2011) is produced by Auditorio de Tenerife with the help of a local and Latinamerican professional team. This title is promoted by Opera de Tenerife. The shows take place on the 22nd, 24th and 26th of March at 7:30 p.m. at the Symphony Hall of the venue.

“Love in the Time of Cholera” and “One Hundred Years of Solitude” are some of the works by Gabriel García Márquez that have inspired this story by Marcela Fuentes-Berain. This musical homage to Gabo and his imaginary arrives at Tenerife with the Ecuadorian director Chía Patiño. She opts for real visual effects and moves away from the usual audio-visual resources, "which have been overused during these two years of pandemic".

During this boat trip at the beginning of the 20th century to Manaus, Brazil, all want to hear the diva Florencia Grimaldi on her return to her homeland that was constructed in the middle of the jungle. Patiño explains that "we will follow this singer who longs for the past, without being very clear whether she exists or not... Is it a dream? "We have a whole ship coming to see her and I want to create doubt on the viewer as to whether the singer is real or not" explains the director, for whom it is very important to "feel the Amazon jungle, the way it affects people and vice versa". 

Patiño leads this stage show and completes her team with the North American stage designer Izmir Ickbal, the Brazilian costume designer Felype de Lima, the American lighting designer Erin Fleming and the Spanish designer and puppet master Alejandra Prieto. 

The Tenerife Symphony Orchestra contributes with the music of this production under the baton of the maestro Pedro Halffter, who once again directs for Opera de Tenerife. "The music of this opera is marvellous! It brings together many elements of Puccini and Debussy. It is very demanding for the orchestra, singers and chorus," says the musical director.  

The proposal of Patiño is based on the concept of a de-constructed boat, wild nature, a little fantasy and, as a new addition, puppets of butterflies and birds are included on the stage, among other elements, which will assist the dreamlike narration, and they will be the responsibility of the puppeteers, a team of local operators directed by Alejandra Prieto. For part of the props, there was a collaboration from the Fernando Estévez Higher School of Art and Design. The stage design was produced at the Workshop of Stage Training of the Auditorio de Tenerife.

After an extensive tour around opera houses in America and two appearances in Europe (Germany and Switzerland), this opera by Catán, a lover of bel canto melody who contributed his passion and originality to the genre, is staged in Spain for the first time. The world première took place in 1996  as a commission of the Houston Grand Opera. The Mexican writer Marcela Fuentes-Berain has come in person to the première in Tenerife She wrote the libretto, and it is nourished by the magical realism of her friend Gabriel García Márquez.

Regarding the cast, the American soprano Sandra López will play Florencia Grimaldi; the Brazilian soprano Lina Mendes will play Rosalba, Rosalba, the journalist who writes about Grimaldi. The Canary Islands-born tenor Airam Hernández will play Arcadio, the nephew of the captain who falls in love with Rosalba. 

The Spanish baritones José Julián Frontal and Àngel Òdena will play Álvaro, the partner of Paula, and Riolobo, a mysterious being from the rainforest, respectively; the American mezzo-soprano Adriana Zabala will play Paula, and the Mexican bass Alejandro López will be the boat captain. 

The Choir of the Opera of Tenerife, directed by Carmen Cruz, will be present in the show, always integrated into the plot, which begins at the port of Leticia, in Colombia, and whose destination is Manaus, in Brazil.

This opera in Spanish tells the story of Florencia Grimaldi, a diva who returns to her town, where her love blossomed for a butterfly hunter, Cristóbal Ribeiro da Silva. She left it all behind for her career and now she is returning in search of the long-awaited reunion.

The story begins in the port of Leticia, Colombia, from where this long journey departs along the Amazon River to Manaus, in Brazil. This destination itself is home to one of the most exaggerated fantasies-and real stories of Latin America, linked to the opera: the construction of a theatre in the middle of the rainforest.

Everyone travelling on this boat, El Dorado, shares the same hope: to hear the diva Florencia Grimaldi on her return to her homeland. The boat sets sail, and with it, this crossing of love and desire where each character is going to discover their inner journey and the true magic of the Amazon River will reveal all its secrets.

Tickets can be purchased until fifteen minutes before each performance 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 5:00 p.m. Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. By purchasing tickets, you accept the measures implemented by the cultural centre to combat COVID-19, such as the correct use of masks.

The performances of this opera in Spanish by the Mexican composer Daniel Catán take place on the 22, 24 and 26 of March

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife produces the Spanish première of the opera Florencia in the Amazonby the Mexican composer Daniel Catán (1949-2011). The performances take place on the 22nd, 24th and 26th of March at the Symphony Hall at 7:30 p.m. The details of this opera were given by Enrique Arriaga, the Island’s Minister of Culture of Tenerife Island Council, Pedro Halffter, the musical director, and Chía Patiño, the stage director.

Enrique Arriaga explained that with 'Florencia in the Amazon', Opera de Tenerife introduces Latin American compositions. “After an extensive tour around the opera houses of America and with just two premières in Europe (Germany and Switzerland), this title is now premièring Spain, created by the Mexican writer Marcela Fuentes-Berain, who will come in person to the première in Tenerife, and it is nourished by the magical realism of her friend Gabriel García Márquez; inspiration that will be sprinkled over the entire stage" stated Arriaga. The vice-president of the Island Council also made it clear that "The Auditorium of Tenerife will continue to commit to a quality culture”.

Pedro Halffter, who will lead the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, thanked the Island Council and Opera de Tenerife for once again having him conduct. “I feel a little from the Canary Islands due to my links to this region, which I frequently visit for Opera de Tenerife and the FIMC (the Canary Islands International Music Festival)” he explained. The maestro shared that he himself was responsible for the musical direction of the Swiss version of Florencia in the Amazon. “It is an extraordinary opera of lush beauty and with an epic musical score that brings to mind the magical sounds of the rainforest”.

Sandra López, an American soprano with a Cuban father and Ecuadorian mother who will play Florencia, acknowledged that she feels "thankful and honoured to be here with this great role, which has a great human and poetic bareness”. The singer highlighted "how fragile Florencia is, she is going through a period of crisis in her life and needs to find herself again”. “The audience will feel they identify with some of the characters who are going through different stages of life" concluded the soloist. 

The Tenerife tenor Airam Hernández stressed "the sense of being twins that Canarians have always felt with Latin America, and that is something that will be experienced intensely in this opera”. With regard to his character, Arcadio, nephew of the captain, he explained that "he is a young man from a small town with the mentality of someone who has been conquered, and the people of Tenerife will perfectly understand that feeling, as well as the many nods that are given in the opera”.

As for the cast, the soprano Sandra López and the tenor Airam Hernández are joined by the Brazilian soprano Lina Mendes, who plays Rosalba, the journalist who writes about Grimaldi. The Spanish baritones José Julián Frontal and Àngel Òdena will play Álvaro, the partner of Paula, and Riolobo, a mysterious being from the rainforest, respectively; the American mezzo-soprano Adriana Zabala will play Paula, and the Mexican bass Alejandro López will be the boat captain.
