AN EVENING AT THE OPERA
Contributor / 2012-04-16 19:04:24
On Easter Sunday more than one hundred members and friends of Todos Juntos Javea went to a performance of the world famous Puccini opera, Tosca in the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia.
The opera was conducted by Omer Meir Wellber and the lead roles were performed by Oksana Dyka as Tosca, Jorge de Leon as Cavaradossi and Marco Vratogna as Scarpia. A long-standing ovation showed the exceptional quality of the performance.
The evening continued with a special Cava Reception during which the Todos Juntos Javea members were able to meet the conductor and actors and talk to them about this unique event
For many this was their first introduction to opera.
The reaction was unanimous “For sure not the last time,” and so Todos Juntos Javea have decided to make this an annual event.
A few days before the event John Deacon, in co-operation with Concerts Costa Blanca, gave an introductory talk about the opera. This is an organisation which aims to show the population of the Costa Blanca the many possibilities available for visiting concerts and operas. His enthusiasm and knowledge about Tosca set the scene perfectly for a wonderful evening.
Todos Juntos Javea is very grateful to John for his help and looks forward to working with him again in the future.
The financial benefit from this event, approx Euro 4.000,00, could only be realized due to the fantastic contribution and co-operation of Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia.
