On November 17th, the Jaen-born conductor Manuel Coves will be at the helm of the Real Filharmonía de Galicia, conducting the sound track of the well-known silent film Metropolis, by the German filmmaker Fritz Lang, which has been programmed by the Festival Cineuropa of Santiago de Compostela. Considered one of the great films of German expressionism, it has an original soundtrack composed by Gottfried Huppert and conceived for a large symphonic orchestra.
And from December 6th through 18th, Coves will stand before the Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid to conduct Don Quijote, a classical ballet in three acts. It will be performed by the Spain's National Dance Company at the Teatro de la Zarzuela of Madrid. The ballet was choreographed by the company's director, José Carlos Martínez, using choreographies by Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorsky. Music is by Ludwig Minkus and scenography by Raúl García Guerrero. It was put on stage for the first time on December 16th, 2015 in the same theatre.
In addition, we will soon see Manuel Coves in a concert of Verdi arias at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, with Gregory Kunde and Juan Jesús Rodríguez, in La Malquerida at Los Teatros del Canal and in a double bill programme Enseñanza libre/La Gatita Blanca at the Teatro de la Zarzuela.
