III Mediterranean Festival at the Valencia Opera House (2010)
With the suggestive title ELLA (she), the third edition of the Mediterranean Festival is getting underway at the Valencia Opera House (Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía), an event that in 2010 is putting the spotlight on women. They will play the starring role from very different perspectives: from the idealised Dulcinea del Toboso, to the nostalgic and stylised vision of a tango and the expressionist sorrow of Strauss.
In this respect, the III Mediterranean Festival has chosen two legendary opera characters, Carmen and Salome. These two operas, along with a number of symphony concerts that will be performed between 29th May and 30th June, will be conducted by the maestro Zubin Mehta.
Furthermore, over the course of this month-long festival, audiences can enjoy film seasons, dramatised readings, exhibitions and of course commemorations of the second centennial of the birth of Chopin and Schumann as well as the 150th anniversary of the birth of Isaac Albeniz. The main novelties at the III Mediterranean Festival include a tribute to Albéniz. For the first time, on 2nd and 3rd June, twelve pianists based in Valencia will be performing the twelve pages of Iberia, the Spanish piano masterpiece. Each performance will be presented and discussed by Justo Romero, dramatist at the Valencia Opera House (Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia) and biographer of Albeniz.
