Such an important landmark can only be commemorated by choosing three central themes with a range of initiatives that look to the future with conviction, without losing sight of a past that deserves to be honoured. The Teatro Real feels proud to present some of its most outstanding projects for the next three years.
For the first time in the history of this theatre, and without precedent in Spain or abroad, three years of opera and big projects for 2016 to 2018 are being presented together.FIND OUT MORE+
