I leave with the orchestra August 31st for a series of concerts in La CoruÃ±a, Spain. The first concert will be with G. Figueroa at El Palacio Opera del la CoruÃ±a on Saturday, September 3rd. The program, tentative as always is Rosenkavalier Suite by R. Strauss, Fandangos by Roberto Sierra and Beethoven’s 7th Symphony. Thursday the 8th we begin rehearsals with L. F. Malheiro of the opera La Traviata with performances on the 10th, 12th, 13th and 15th.
La CoruÃ±a lies at the extreme north west of Spain and forms part of the autonomous community of Galicia. Pablo Picasso lived in La CoruÃ±a for four years. Directly on the Atlantic it has beaches, a giant open fish market each morning. It should be fun.
