First opera cycle arrives in Arona
One of the most acclaimed voices, the great soprano, Lianna Haroutounian, has opened the 1st Opera Cycle of Arona, an initiative promoted by the local council to bring theatrical music to all citizens.
Lianna inaugurated the series with her debut at the Infanta Leonor Auditorium in Los Cristianos on February 16th. The Armenian singer, who achieved great triumphs in the seasons of the Vienna Opera and the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, performed a programme of opera arias and zarzuela romances accompanied on the piano by José Ramón Martín.
This first Arona Opera Cycle continues on March 12th with a performance by the Canary artist Celso Albelo, one of the best tenors in the world, who will perform Latin American songs, opera arias and zarzuela romances with the pianist José Francisco Parra.
Culture councillor, Leopoldo Díaz said: “Culture should be available to all citizens, so our purpose is to bring to the municipality different cultural options that arouse the interest of Arona residents. In this case, we have opted for opera, since it is one of the most important and significant cultural expressions that encompasses art, literature, poetry, performing arts and music.”
