Conductor Juanjo Mena will lead the Teatro Real (Royal Opera of Madrid) in their Carnegie Hall debut on 15 September 2022, after being named Best Opera Company in 2021 by the International Opera Awards. The concert highlights well-known works for piano, orchestra, and songs from zarzuela composed by Falla, Albéniz and others. Soloists will include pianist Javier Perianes and soprano Sabina Puértolas.
Juanjo Mena recently debuted with the opera house, leading critically acclaimed performances of Arthur Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc au Bûcher alongside Debussy’s La damoiselle élue, a new co-production with the Frankfurt Opera by Alex Ollé of La Fura dels Baus, which features Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard in the title role.
