Praised production signed by the Asturian stage director Emilio Sagi who carries the elegance that characterizes his creations. He has recently been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Ópera XXI association and the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts.
In the words of the stage director himself, Bellini's music "has an exacerbating, hypnotic force, it's a melody that gets inside your head". That impacted him and, from there, he began to work on the staging. "It seemed like a glass opera to me that led to a scene with some theatrical effects." His staging makes the characters appear crossed by melancholy.
One of the most emblematic titles of the bel canto school, as well as of Donizetti. It is the first title of the famous Tudor Trilogy.
Co-production under the stage direction of Stefano Mazzonis di Pralafera, with a powerful set design that recreates the London halls of Henry VIII, as well as faithful costumes and accessories that dress the character of Anna Boleyn during the performance, with a facsimile of the dress that wore the Queen that same day.
COSÌ FAN TUTTE
ABAO Bilbao Opera has wanted this staging not to be a traditional photograph of Così fan tutte seen on countless occasions and, for this reason, together with Marta Eguilor, this "That's the way they all do" narrates the adventures of the characters on a fair day, set in the 1920s, with characteristic Belle Époque costumes, rich and elegant, where the world of divination, palmistry and magic are present throughout the entire score.
Immortal opera and one of the most performed in the Italian verista repertoire due to its dramatic intensity. It contains three of the best known arias in the history of opera. The stage direction is in charge of the Argentinean Mario Pontiggia. A realistic production of colossal scenery that has a historical and monumental design. The pictorial value of the scenic ensemble stands out, projecting the viewer into an opulent space.
One of Verdi's most popular titles, belonging to his romantic trilogy along with Rigoletto and Traviata. A production where Lorenzo Mariani plays with one of the most symbolic aspects of all opera: the night and the moon. However, Il Trovatore is the darkest opera in the entire Verdian catalog since all of it takes place between sunset and nightfall.
