Cap Rocat, the most remote and exclusive hotel in the Mediterranean, will offer next 23 July at 21:30h a musical evening that will unite under the starry Majorcan sky one of the greatest sopranos of the moment, the american Sondra Radvanovsky, together with the Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands under the musical direction of the teacher Pablo Mielgo.

Today's great opera diva, owner of one of the most applauded voices on the world lyrical scene, will offer a recital at Cap Rocat in which some of the most famous and beloved pieces of opera will be covered: since Oh my dear daddy de Gianni Schicchi, until the Vissi d'arte with which Floria Tosca surrenders to the arms of destiny, Aryan paths signed by Giacomo Puccini, passing through milestones such as La mamma morta by Andrea Chénier by Umberto Giordano, O Bolero Mercè, diette friends de I Vespri Siciliani de Giuseppe Verdi.

According to critics, the performer is at the peak of her artistic career and by nature possesses an ideal voice for this repertoire, a voice that has been compared to that of opera stars such as María Callas or Rosa Ponselle. Definitely, a concert in which Sondra Radvanovsky will explore the musical geography of the great romantic opera, a repertoire with which he has garnered applause and ovations from La Scala in Milan to the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

This enormous capacity to communicate has been confirmed in the recent and notorious encores that the singer has given in our country, both at the Teatro Real in the production of Tosca premiered a year ago now, as in the Liceo in Barcelona where, after more than 30 uninterrupted minutes of applause, sang the mythical Mamma morta again in Andrea Chénier.

The voice of one of the greatest sopranos of the moment will be joined by a leading orchestra on the national and international scene.: the Balearic Islands Symphony, together with its director, Pablo Mielgo, will offer some of Verdi's best-known overtures, like the ones in La Forza del Destino or Nabucco, as well as others by Puccini or Otto Nicolai. Definitely, a musical night in which both Sondra Radvanovsky and the musicians of the Balearic Symphony will be able to shine to the fullest.

The "Night of the Senses" in the most exclusive hotel in the Mediterranean For some years now, Antonio Obrador, creative creator of Cap Rocat, The Madina Mayurqa Foundation and Pablo Mielgo, musical director of the Balearic Symphony, worked on the idea of ​​promoting a series of summer lyrical concerts, presenting great figures of opera and classical music in this extraordinary space, with the aim of turning this annual event into an event desired by music lovers and a cultural reference in the Islands.

A) Yes, and despite the difficulties, In August of last year, a first great lyrical recital was held under the name "La Noche de los Sentios", in which the Menorcan baritone Simón Orfila could be heard, the Majorcan soprano Irene Mas and the Balearic Islands Symphony under the direction of Pablo Mielgo. The event took place in Cap Rocat before an audience made up of some 200 people and it was a great success. Now, The Night of the Senses returns for the second year with more force and without the restrictions that the pandemic imposed last year. As stated by Antonio Obrador, “We want the Night of the Senses to come back to stay, giving continuity to that first concert and with the idea of ​​turning it into an annual event expected and desired by everyone in Mallorca”.

Likewise, and for the annual organization of this event, Cap Rocat will feature a renowned professional from the world of opera, Ilias Tzempetonidis - artistic coordinator of the San Carlos Theater in Naples- as artistic director and with Pablo Mielgo as musical director. Definitely, much of the magic of these concerts will be due to the impressive stage in which it takes place: Cap Rocat, the most desired and private hotel in the Mediterranean, a place that offers its guests an incomparable experience of maximum well-being in one of the most splendid places on the Majorcan coast.

Located in an old military fortress, camouflaged with the natural reserve of 30 hectares that surrounds it and delimited by 2 Km of protected coast, Cap Rocat is a haven of calm just ten minutes from Palma de Mallorca. Tranquility, Simplicity and vindication of native values ​​are the main hallmarks of this unique hotel, pioneer of ecological tourism and member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
