Event details
 

Ivor Bolton, Musical Director of the Teatro Real, takes on the challenge of conducting one of Benjamin Britten’s least known operas: Gloriana. The work was a commission for the coronation ofElizabeth II, and its debut in Madrid will be on April 12. After last season’s resounding success of Billy Budd, also by Britten, the English conductor will work alongside stage producer David McVicar to present a historical and unpleasant account of Queen Elizabeth I of England.


Anna Caterina Antonacci and Alexandra Deshorties will alternate in the principal role, portraying an Elizabeth who is trapped between her obligations as a queen and her tempestuous  relationship with the ambitious Earl of Essex, Robert Devereux.

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.
