Teatro de la Maestranza presents the double-bill programme Der Diktator/Der Kaiser von Atlantis with Maestro Pedro Halffter conducting


The dictator, a tragic opera in one act by Ernst Krenek, and Viktor Ullmann's The emperor of Atlantis, will be performed at the Teatro de la Maestranza of Seville on November 30th, December 2nd and December 4th. Maestro Pedro Halffter will conduct the two operas that make up this double bill programme developed by the Maestranza to help Spanish audiences become more familiar with the great repertory of the late romantic Viennese style. The dictator, moreover, will be making its Spanish premiere. The stage direction of this coproduction by Teatro Real de Madrid, the Palau de Les Arts of Valencia and the Maestranza is by Rafael Rodríguez Villalobos (Der Diktator) and Gustavo Tambascio (Der Kaiser von Atlantis).

Maestro Halffter's upcoming engagements include Il trovatore, also at the Teatro de la Maestranza, and a concert with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid at the Auditorio Nacional.
