PROGRAMME

The Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès, together with the Catalan singers Serena Sáenz, Marta Mathéu and Laura Vila, celebrates the centenary of the birth of the iconic diva.

Three of our most renowned singers will take to the stage to recreate some of the most memorable moments in the history of opera in a tribute concert to the iconic Maria Callas. Serena Sáenz, Marta Mathéu and Laura Vila will join the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès on stage to pay tribute to the legendary artist and her incomparable legacy, under the baton of Irene Delgado-Jiménez.

Maria Callas was one of the most celebrated and influential opera singers of the 20th century. Her influence on the world of opera has been immense, and her recordings and performances continue to be enjoyed and studied by opera enthusiasts and scholars all over the world. Her passion, intensity and dedication to her craft made her one of the most charismatic and beloved artists of her time.

On the occasion of the centenary of her birth, we will dedicate an emotional tribute to her with a very special concert. It will feature arias such as “Casta Diva” from Bellini’s “Norma”, “Sempre Libera” from Verdi’s “La Traviata”, “Habanera” from Bizet’s “Carmen” or Delibes’ “Flower Duet”. For a few hours, the great diva will be brought back to life through the voices of three of our leading singers: Serena Sáenz, Marta Mathéu and Laura Vila.
