By Barry Wright TOR­RE­VIEJA’S €50 mil­lion in­ter­na­tional au­di­to­rium fi­nally has a cul­tural pro­gramme wor­thy of the build­ing’s stature.

For many years since its con­struc­tion the au­di­to­rium has only spo­rad­i­cally hosted events.

This new stage in the build­ing’s che­quered life sees its pro­gram­ming and man­age­ment be­ing han­dled by the pro­duc­tion com­pany Sonora Pro­duc­ciones, who last week an­nounced a busy sched­ule of mu­sic, dance, the­atre and opera fea­tur­ing na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed artists.

The pro­gramme com­mences on Novem­ber 16 with the dance pro­duc­tion El Amor Brujo by the Víc­tor Ul­late bal­let.

The other sched­uled dance event is a much-an­tic­i­pated pro­duc­tion of The Nutcracker (Cas­canue­ces) by Saint Pe­ters­burg Bal­let which takes place on Jan­uary 16.

The first mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion, en­ti­tled ‘sym­phonic Mex­ico Lindo’ with Nuria Fergó, Felipe Garpe and their Mari­achi band ac­com­pa­nied by the Tor­re­vieja mu­si­cal union band Los Salerosos takes place on Novem­ber 18.

This will be fol­lowed with con­certs by An­to­nio Orozco on De­cem­ber 9; the up­com­ing pop/fla­menco fu­sion phe­nom­e­non Ros­alía ac­com­pa­nied by Raül Re­free will be per­form­ing her lat­est re­lease, Los An­ge­les on Jan­uary 19; and fi­nally El Niño de Elche will bring his elec­tronic/fla­menco cross­over sounds to the au­di­to­rium on Fe­bru­ary 24.

The only opera event to fea­ture in the in­au­gu­ral sched­ule will be the Opera 2001 pro­duc­tion of Il trova­tore (El Trovador) by Giusseppe Verdi on Fe­bru­ary 13.

The al­ready an­nounced Tor­re­vieja sym­phony orches­tra 2017-2018 sea­son will take place as sched­uled (see ‘Tor­re­vieja’ town list­ing on p40 for pro­gramme).

The in­ter­na­tional au­di­to­rium’s sym­phonic hall holds 1,450 peo­ple, whilst the smaller cham­ber hall has room for 385 spec­ta­tors.

Full pro­gramme and ticket in­for­ma­tion is avail­able from the venue web­site at www.au­di­to­ri­otor­re­vieja.com
