Soprano Guiomar Cantó will present a series of concerts at the Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid.
The first showcase, scheduled for Dec. 30, 2022, will be a traditional Christmas concert entitled “Viena en Madrid.” The concert, which celebrates the holiday season, will feature the soprano alongside the Orquesta and Coro Filarmonía and the Ballet Filarmonía. There will be music by Strauss, von Suppé, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and many others.
Following that showcase, the soprano will be a part of the XXII Gran Gala Solidaria de la Zarzuela de Año Nuevo; That concert, which will be led by the Fundación Sinfolírica, is set for Jan. 7, 2023 at the Auditorio Nacional as well.
That showcase will feature music from “La Revoltosa,” “Doña Francisquita,” “Luisa Fernanda,” “Marina,” La Dolorosa,” and “La Rosa del Azafrán,” among others. The soprano will be joined by 12 other vocal soloists as well as a 140-person chorus.
Cantó recently performed a family concert on Dec. 17, 2022 at the Auditorio Nacional. She was also La Contessa in a November showcase of “Le Nozze di Figaro” at the Gran Teatre de Xátiva.
