After succeeding with Carmen at the Gran Teatro de Córdoba, Madrid mezzosoprano Maria Jose Montiel sing two of his favorite roles: María Moliner in the opera of the same name at the Teatre Principal of Palma de Mallorca and Charlotte of Werther at the Teatro Massimo of Palermo.
The Spanish diva, one of the most important representatives of the Spanish lyrical today, will resume in the Majorcan capital the role of María Moliner, a role written especially for her and whose premiere took place at the Teatro de La Zarzuela in April last year. This is the central character in the opera María Moliner, Mallorcan composer Antoni Parera, a project of the theater director and set designer quoted Paco Azorín which was Montiel starring its premiere and now takes up the Main. For the Madrid singer, It's about a “rich character whose work must be disclosed more. She was a strong woman who fought a very complex stage in the history of Spain and that despite the situation of political repression that existed achieved one of its major goals, as it is to publish a dictionary”. according to Montiel, This proposal contemporary opera has allowed the life and work “this special woman revives today; I hope more theaters in the Spanish geography and international level interested in programming it”. The appointment is the day 5, 7 Y 9 May having the same spectacular and assembly applauded Paco Azorín specially adapted to the stage of the Teatre Principal de Palma.
Later María José Montiel will move to Sicily (Italy) to play Charlotte, de Werther, one of the masterpieces of French composer Jules Massenet. The singer confesses a weakness for this character, which, because of the circumstances that Goethe conceived for him in the novel that inspired the opera, “He lives a very sad and troubled life, with pain and melancholy. It has a fully repressed passion within herself. In any case, when I sing Charlotte, I feel a huge emotion and passion. The text and the wonderful music of Massenet are perfectly amalgamated, something that helps me a lot to get into the character's feelings”. There will be two functions, the days 27 Y 31 of May.
