Gregorio Marañón, President of the Teatro Real
"The 21st Century Teatro Real, its success and impact, can only be understood with the support it receives from public administration and civil society. Thanks to this, the Teatro Real is the leading opera house in Spain, one of its most important cultural institutions, and the greatest in the field of performing arts and music.
The programme at the Teatro Real seeks a balance between the traditional lyrical repertoire, the revival of pieces which, owing to its 75-year closure, had never been performed on its stage, and brand-new opera. This artistic project is based on the excellence of the permanent companies—the orchestra and choir—, and bringing in the best voices, the best conductors and the best stage directors.
After the celebration of its bicentenary and thanks to its artistic project, the Teatro Real has recovered the relevance of international impact that it had in the 19th Century. This is demonstrated by co-productions with major European and American theatres, participation in global opera fora, and the innumerable international awards and prizes recognising our work.
The Teatro Real has also managed to open itself up to new audiences, via live broadcasts to public spaces in cities and villages around Spain, to community arts and teaching centres, to social media and via screenings in cinemas around Europe, America and Asia.
I invite you all, businesses and institutions in civil society, to continue to take part in the exciting projects of the Teatro Real, making them possible and enjoying the achievements as if they were your own."
Ignacio García-Belenguer, Director General of the Teatro Real
"The Teatro Real is the leading cultural institution nationally and internationally with its own model for promoting the support and participation of civil society, thanks to the efforts of over one hundred businesses and institutions and more than 400 private individuals who each season contribute, support and form part of this exciting cultural project.
