The three concerts make up the cycle Opera Star Festival, with special advantages for the acquisition of seats.

The three singers will perform different and complementary programs, with a repertoire that reveals the artistic territories in which they currently stand out in their respective formats: two piano recitals (DiDonato y Kaufmann) and a lyrical concert with orchestra (Camarena).

The versatile mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, much loved by the public of Madrid, will perform works by Joseph Haydn, Gustav Mahler, Johann Adolph Hasse y Hector Berlioz, in the first part and cabaret songs, in the second, with pianist Craig Terry, with which he won a Grammy award for "Best Classical Solo Vocal Album" for the album of Songplay.
