From 6 to 14 July, the Teatro Real will hold its fifth Opera Week, a unique opportunity to discover an art form with something to offer audiences of all ages. Over several days, the public can experience the art of opera interactively and free of charge, in guided tours, live broadcasts, open door days, workshops for children, competitions, and more.

From 6 to 14 July, Madrid's Teatro Real will be celebrating Opera Week, through which it is organising a series of activities designed to bring this art form to many different places in an entertaining way. The most exciting moment will probably be the live broadcast of the ever-popular opera “Il Trovatore”, by Giuseppe Verdi, on Saturday 6 July at 9 pm.

This will bring the show from the stage of the Teatro Real to Plaza de Oriente in Madrid and to other squares, town halls, parks, auditoriums, museums and cultural centres in a hundred municipalities throughout Spain. The performance will also be broadcast live on the online platforms Palco Digital, Opera Vision and the Facebook channel of Teatro Real.

Guided tours, and more

There will also be a retrospective on Giuseppe Verdi with an opportunity to see five operas by the Italian composer. There will be free screenings from 8 to 12 July in the Sala Gayarre of the Teatro Real. The sessions will start at 7 pm, with a programme including “La Traviata”, “Aida”, “Un ballo in maschera”, “Otello” and “Falstaff”. These videos will also be available for free on the Palco Digital platform.

On Sunday 7 July, also in the Sala Gayarre, there will be a concert with the title “Inclusión Real”, performed by Aula Social del Teatro Real, the institution’s project to bring the world of music and the performing arts to an audience of underprivileged children and young people.

On Saturday 13 July young people are again the focus, with two workshops for children held in the Café de Palacio and Salón de Baile. The mask and props-making workshop and the character creation session “¡Nos vestimos de ópera!” are a great way for children to learn about opera while having fun. On the same day, the Teatro Real will hold its usual open day, from 10 am to 2.30 pm. Anyone who wants can visit the iconic salons and spaces of the Teatro Real.  At the same time, competitions and lotteries will be organised on the social network profiles of the Teatro Real.
