Event details
 

The premiere at the Teatro Real of Street Scene, by Kurt Weill, will be one of the important events of this season. With the libretto by Elmer Rice, based on a story by the same name (Pulitzer Prize-winning play 1929), and the song lyrics by Langston Hughe, Street Scene narrates a series of anonymous lives in a big city from a brutally realistic viewpoint.


This was Weill’s first opera composed during his American exile years and he referred to it as an “American opera”; in it, the Broadway musical, North American jazz and European traditional opera converge.

Venue
 
Teatro Real
 

The Teatro Real reopened on 11 October, 1997 under the management of the Foundation. Since that day, it has developed activities that are clearly aimed at protecting and promoting Spanish artistic heritage, especially organising, creating and putting on performances of opera, music and dance.

Throughout its existence, the Teatro Real has always been committed to contributing to Spain's culture, and boosting the country's international cultural presence. Consequently the Teatro Real has managed to position itself as a major focus for artistic activity on an international level, and it is also an undisputed benchmark among Spanish cultural institutions.

With an impressive capacity for producing its own productions, the Teatro Real cultivates its own traditional repertoire as well as welcoming more modern works, with a strong commitment to providing the public with a place to discover the best performers and directors of the moment. This, together with the theatre's excellent choir and orchestra, use of the most innovative technology and the production of an extensive range of artistic performances, which are increasingly shown on stage around the world, have made the Real an important institution both in Spain and abroad.

To carry out this project, the Teatro Real has counted on the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, as well as the Autonomous Community of Madrid, ever since the theatre was granted the status of a cultural foundation in 1995. These institutions, within the scope of Law 49/2002 of 23 December, on the taxation of non-profit organisations and tax incentives for patronage, and Law 50/2002, of 26 December, on Foundations, outline the main objectives of the theatre as follows: producing, planning and managing opera, music and dance to be performed on stage.

The Foundation also counts on other means of financing: the founding capital, annual subsidies from the Governmental Organisations (the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport and the Autonomous Community of Madrid), as well as a contribution from Madrid City Council as a collaborating Governmental Organisation, and income from corporate, institutional and personal sponsorship, ticket sales, room hire, selling advertisement space in programmes and renting out productions to other theatres.
