The Orchestra of Teatro Real (the Royal Opera of Madrid), Spain’s national opera house and winner of “Best Opera Company” at the 2021 International Opera Awards, makes its U.S. debut at Carnegie Hall in “A Celebration of Spanish Music” on September 15, 2022 at 8:30 pm. The concert celebrates the music of Spain, with the first half devoted to piano and orchestral music by Falla and Albéniz. After intermission, the program turns to a selection of pieces from zarzuela (a form of Spanish opera) by Manuel de Falla, Amadeo Vives, Pablo Sorozábal, Gerónimo Giménez and Manuel Nieto, as well as orchestral works by Federico Chueca, Falla and Albéniz.
Three internationally renowned Spanish artists join the Teatro Real orchestra for this all-Spanish program: guest conductor Juanjo Mena, pianist Javier Perianes and soprano Sabina Puértolas. The historic U.S. debut of the Orchestra of Teatro Real also marks the 40th anniversary of the Sister City agreement between Madrid and New York, reflecting Teatro Real’s commitment to its artistic mission of building bridges across nations and cultures through artistic collaboration.
