Tribute to Victoria de los 聲geles- October 29th, 2012

A couple of days to Victoria de los Ángeles birthday, she would have turned 89 on the 1st of November 2012, the Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid pays tribute to the singer through a benefit act that will take place the on the 29th of October at 8 pm

The aim of this charity event is to raise money for the Foundation named after this worldwide famous singer.


This one-of-a-kind event will start with the premiere of the documentary film Brava, Victoria! directed by Maria Gorgues. This masterpiece is not a biopic, but rather a movie that reveals the most relevant insides in the life of Victoria de los Ángeles, both on and off stage. On the one hand the internationally renowned singer, and on the other hand the outstanding woman hidden under the popular figure surrounded by her loved ones. The documentary unveils 16mm & 8 mm movies filmed by the soprano in the 50’s and 60’s as well as unrevealed pictures and personal diaries that will help reconstruct her story, narrated by herself and those who accompanied her along the years.  


The homage evening will continue with a recital by Celso Albelo (winner of the Ópera Actual award in 2008 and of the International Opera Awards in 2012), pianist Juan Francisco Parra, will accompany the tenor. This recital will be the second edition of the series 'Lucero nuestro', an initiative that, under the artistic direction of Nancy Fabiola Herrera, is presented for the first time in Madrid. The initiative ‘Lucero nuestro’ is named after Victoria de los Ángeles youngest son Alex, suffering from Down syndrome. whom she used to call ‘Lucero mío’ (my brightest star) and has the support of leading international opera figures. It started last year with a recital of Nancy Fabiola Herrera at the Auditorium of Sant Cugat del Vallès.


Victoria de los Ángeles said goodbye to her operatic career in Madrid with ‘Pelleas et Melisande’ in 1980.
