Fidelio returns to the Teatro de la Maestranza under the baton of Pedro Halffter


Between October 24th and 30th Pedro Halffter will stand before the Real Orquesta Sinfónica of Seville, the Chorus of the Association of Friends of the Teatro de la Maestranza and a cast of great international voices, to conduct Fidelio, Beethoven's only opera. Its libretto, in German, was written by Joseph F. Sonnleithner after an original text in French, Léonore, ou l’amour conjugal, by Jean-Nicolas Bouilly. It returns to the Seville theatre with José Carlos Plaza as stage director.
Pedro Halffter will soon be conducting the OCNE in a concert featuring works by Ravel and Strauss and also the Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid performing Gustav Mahler's Titan, or Symphony no. 1 in D major.
