Spend the day with two of Spain’s most revered singers, both divas in their own right and daughters of some of the greatest stars in the history of Grand Opera. The day begins with an Opera Gala featuring Montserrat Martí Caballé, daughter of soprano Montserrat Caballé and tenor Bernabé Martí, who takes us on a journey through the world of Opera and Spanish Zarzuela with a selection of some of the classical genre’s most fascinating solos and duets.
The evening turns to Bacchus in Love with an inebriating mix of good wines and music; duets and songs that speak to us of passion and joy, friendships and glamour, exaltation and inspiration. Together soprano Cecilia Lavilla Berganza, daughter of the grand opera diva Teresa Berganza, baritone Luis Santana and pianist Victor Carbajo exalt the goodness of “miracle juices” by interpreting an extensive repertoire of different composers and celebrating this exciting and passionate pairing.

SYNOPSIS: It is certain that for most any opera lover the surnames Martí and Caballé are a reminder of two of the greatest universally known singers in the art form’s history, soprano Montserrat Caballé and tenor Bernabé Martí.
Montserrat Martí Caballé is the daughter of these two stars, from whom she inherited her deep love and respect for opera as well as her great talent.
The Recital “Opera Gala with Montserrat Martí Caballé” is a journey through the world of Opera and Spanish Zarzuela with a selection of some of the classical genre’s most fascinating solos and duets, including Giacomo Puccini’s “Oh mio babbino caro”, “La ci darem la mano” by W.A. Mozart or “Largo al Factotum” by G. Rossini. And being a Spanish singer, it would be criminal not to include such striking Spanish works as “Me llaman la primorosa” by Giménez, “Todas las mañanitas” by Penella and pieces by Manuel de Falla or Federico Garcia Lorca.
