Ópera de Tenerife begins a speaking tour about L'elisir d'amore

from 18-Sep-2019 to 22-Oct-2019
Inicio en Vilaflor y distintos municipios de la Isla
libre acceso hasta completar aforo

Ópera de Tenerife will bring twelve municipalities of Tenerife closer to L'elisir d'amore, through informative conferences that will allow audiences to discover the work’s ins and outs; from its main characteristics to anecdotes about the author, the characters and the historical context.

These talks will start tomorrow at the Municipal Library of Vilaflor at 17:00, and will continue until the 22nd October, two days before the opera itself will be performed at the Symphonic Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife, kicking off the opera season. These talks will be free until capacity is reached and will last approximately 60 minutes.

This cultural tour includes fifteen dates that will take place in different facilities that are part of the Insular Network of Public Libraries.

After Vilaflor, Ópera on Tour (Ópera en Ruta) will arrive at Puerto de la Cruz (19th September), Güimar (24th) and Silos (27th). October will begin with a conference on the 1st at the Tabaiba library (El Rosario), and continue onto Los Cristianos (4th), Adrián Alemán de La Languna library (8th), Antonio Bello de San Juan de la Rambla (10th), Candelaria (11th), Garachico (15th), the State Library in Santa Cruz (16th), the Casa de la Castaña Cultural Centre in La Victoria de Acentejo (17th), Adeje (18th) and will end on 22nd October in La Orotava.

Ópera on Tour is part of the Ópera de Tenerife and Auditorio de Tenerife’s communication strategy for the new 2019-2020 season and, in addition to publicising opera, it will show the value the economic driving capacity of the Tenerife project through its productions, which will provide an impetus for local cultural industry.

L'elisir d'amore by Giacomo Donizetti is a production that is located within the highly specialised academy of Opera (e)Studio. This is the Donizetti’s most famous comic opera, thanks to unforgettable melodies such as 'Una furtiva lagrima', which will be performed on the 24th, 25th and 26th October at 19:30 hours and Sunday 27th at 18:00 hours in the Symphonic Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife. The co-production by Ópera de Tenerife, Teatro Comunale di Bologna and the Tbilisi Opera and Ballet State Theatre is funded through the European Commission’s Creative Europe programme.

The production will feature musical direction by Antonio Méndez and stage direction by Pablo Maritano, along with a cast of artists selected through auditions that were held for the seventh edition of Opera (e)Studio in Bologna, Tbilisi, Madrid and Tenerife.
