The Teatro de la Maestranza once again welcomes the public at large with a new season characterised by diversity: opera, jazz, classical ballet and contemporary dance. A season for all, in the theatre for all.
The Opera Series opens with Don Giovanni, the “opera of operas” and without a doubt one of the most related to the name of Seville, which Mozart performed for the first time in Prague. It returns between November 21st and 29th in the production of the Teatro de la Maestranza conceived by Mario Gas. In his awaited meeting with the Sevilian public, the baritone Carlos Álvarez, will lead a cast of exceptional Spanish voices like Yolanda Auyanet, Maite Alberola, José Luis Sola, David Menéndez or Rocío Ignacio, conducted by Maxim Emelyanychev, an emerging talent in the Baroque and Classical repertoire. Between February 6th and 14th 2015, Norma by Bellini arrives, one of the great Romantic dramas of the Bel Canto. The great American soprano Angela Meade together with the famous Italian mezzo-soprano Sonia Ganassi and the progressing Spanish tenor, Sergio Escobar, under the baton of Maurizio Benini, perform a production of the Teatro Regio of Turín, with stage management of Vittorio Borrelli, based on an original idea of Alberto Fassini. In March 2015-between 13th and 18th, the Maestranza performs for the first time in Spain, Doctor Atomic by John Adams, one of the most important composers of the contemporary scene. With libretto of the dramatist, it recreates the preparation of the first atomic bomb.

Puccini’s Tosca, has been impressing audiences since its premiere between May 29th and June 13th 2015, in six performances, featuring the coproduction of La Maestranza and the Liceu. They present this opera conceived by Paco Azorín, as far as the staging is concerned, and which will count with Pedro Halffter conducting and the cast led by the soprano Hui He –one of the great Tosca experts- the tenor from Tenerife Jorge de León and the Italian baritone Ambrogio Maestri.
