Opera Week 17

For the third consecutive year, the Teatro Real celebrates its Opera Week from 30 June to 9 July with a great number of different activities as a way of connecting and opening the Teatro Real to the public at large on the occasion of its Bicentenary.


Madrid's Plaza Mayor becomes the Teatro Real thanks to a cinema screen. On 2 July, at 10pm, we will stream the zarzuela Luisa Fernanda, by Federico Moreno Torroba. This production stars Plácido DomingoNancy HerreraJosé Bros and Mariola Cantanero, is directed by Emilio Sagi and conducted by Jesús López Cobos.
