Seville, Opera City

Seville, Opera City

Discovering history, heritage, legends and characters through opera; a beautiful way to get to know Seville and its customs.

Not in vain did prestigious composers like Mozart, Verdi, Beethoven, Bizet and others seek inspiration in our city for their great creations, over a hundred in all, including the five great operas: Don Giovanni, Carmen, Fidelio, The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro. Stroll through the beautiful Santa Cruz district, with its noble houses, its typical, narrow streets, its patios and fountains… Here we can find the Hostería del Laurel, where Don Juan Tenorio met Don Luis de Mejía. See the Tobacco Factory and find yourself in the first act of Carmen, the beautiful cigarette maker, with Morales, Don José, and the bustle of the cigarette girls… And it goes on, there are many places in which visitors can feel themselves in the place of these great opera characters who have made the name of Seville so famous, far and wide.

Royal Seville Symphony Orchestra

The Royal Seville Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1990. Its first music director was Vjekoslav Sutej, the true architect of the orchestra, who led it until 1996. The current music director is the maestro Pedro Alffter under whom the orchestra, with over one hundred and thirty musicians from 19 countries, has become a reference point on the European Symphony music scene. With a programme full of renowned works and the constant renewal of the repertoire, the RSSO has rightfully won its place as one of the great orchestras of today.

Maestranza Theatre

The City of Opera could not be without a dedicated venue for “bel canto”. Two decades ago, Seville inaugurated the Maestranza Theatre. On a prime site on the banks of the Guadalquivir, it meets the highest technical specifications and stages a varied programme of opera, making it the greatest stage venue of the south of the Peninsula.
