MANUEL DE FALLA / JESÚS TORRES Musical conductor: Jordi Francés | Stage direction and costumes: Rafael R. Villalobos | Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro Real

The premiere of the new opera Tejas Verdes is a great Spanish musical event. Created entirely by homegrown talent, it was inspired by the poems of Miguel Hernández's Cancionero y romancero de ausencias. The stage director Rafael R. Villalobos links the score by Jesús Torres and the work of Manuel de Falla with his scenery and characterisation.
