The Catalan tenor and the pianist Marco Evangelisti will perform melodies from 'Luisa Fernanda' and 'Doña Francisquita', among others.


This week, the Auditorio of Tenerife is organising three lyrical recitals to complement the Tenerife Opera season. The programme, entitled Noches de Zarzuela (Zarzuela Evenings), will feature the Catalan tenor José Bros and the Italian pianist Marco Evangelisti. The three concerts take place at 7.30 p.m. each at the Teatro El Sauzal, the Infanta Leonor in Arona, and the Auditorio de Tenerife Adán Martín. Tickets can be purchased through the usual channels of the concert halls.

The first of the events with the Spanish genre takes place on Thursday (12th) at the Teatro El Sauzal. The next day (Friday 13th), the performance will be at the Auditorio Infanta Leonor Los Cristianos (Arona). Lastly, on 14 October, the Chamber Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife will host the last performance of these Noches de Zarzuela.

Arias such as Bella enamorada of the zarzuela El último romántico will be heard, along with other melodies from well-known zarzuelas such as Luisa Fernanda, La dolorosa, Alma de dios, El huésped del sevillano, La isla de las perlas, El sombrero de tres picos, and Doña Francisquita.

José Bros, a tenor who is much loved by the Tenerife public and a regular of the Opera of Tenerife seasons, is considered one of the leading exponents of the Romantic bel canto repertoire of recent years. He has performed over 60 titles in this style and has also achieved important successes with works from the French repertoire.

Marco Evangelisti was born in Lucca, Italy. He has taught courses in the lyrical repertoire, and he performs as an accompanying pianist in opera and chamber music performances at the main theatres and festivals in Spain, Europe, and the United States, alongside performers such as Ainhoa Arteta, Montserrat Caballé, Mariola Cantarero, Fiorenza Cedolins, and María Gallego.
