Cap d’ànim de cap de setmana

El artista Eugenio Ampudia inicia la actividad en el Liceu con un concierto para 2.292 plantas. El 22 de junio se emitió por streaming el ‘Concierto para el bioceno’, en el que el cuarteto de cuerda UceLi Quartet interpretó ‘Crisantemi’ de Puccini para un público formado por 2.292 plantas procedentes de viveros de la zona

Las plantas fueron entregadas posteriormente a 2.292 profesionales de la sanidad, concretamente del Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, acompañadas de un certificado del artista

El concierto nace de la iniciativa del Liceu y el artista junto con la Galería Max Estrella y el comisariado de Blanca De La Torre

Esta acción continúa con el diálogo entre el Teatre y las artes visuales que Víctor Garcia de Gomar quiere desarrollar dentro de su proyecto artístico y el preludio de una temporada 2020/21 llena de sinergias y encuentros entre disciplinas artísticas

Madama Butterfly

‘One fine day, we’ll meet again‘, sings Cio-Cio-San, longing for the return of her husband. US marine officer Pinkerton chose her, a young Japanese girl, to become his wife when he arrived in Nagasaki. For him, she renounced her family and her religion, and she gave birth to his son. But once Pinkerton’s ship returns to the port of Nagasaki, Cio-Cio-San’s hopes of a happy future together are shattered…

MADAMA BUTTERFLY is one of the most performed operas in the world. Puccini drew inspiration from traditional Japanese music for his adaptation of the short novella by John Luther Long and composed one of his most refined opera scores. His heroine Cio-Cio-San is a woman torn between two civilisations; caught between Eastern and Western culture, between tradition and modernisation.

Director Mario Gas sets his new interpretation of the opera on the stage of Madrid’s Teatro Real in a 1930’s film studio where they are working on a film adaptation of Puccini’s opera. Gas opens the opera’s plot up by adding a film crew, offering two interpretations simultaneously: the acting in front of the camera and the actual film. 

Soprano Ermonela Jaho is no stranger to the audience at the Teatro Real and of THE OPERA PLATFORM. In 2015, she dazzled as Violetta Valéry in LA TRAVIATA and in 2016 in the role of Desdemona in OTELLO. Now, she returns to Madrid as Cio-Cio-San. Alongside Jaho, Jorge de León takes the role of Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton. Marco Armiliato, a most experienced conductors of the Italian repertoire, will lead the orchestra of the Teatro Real through one of the most unforgettable scores ever written for the opera stage.
