The director of “Opera Yucatan A.C.”, Benjamín Ramírez, announced the screening of 4 famous operas on the Mayamax mega – screen at the Mundo Maya Museum, from February 1st to May 3rd, free admission.

The following operas will be projected:

  • “The Marriage of Figaro” (Las Bodas de Fígaro de Mozart) by Mozart on February 1st.
  • “Don Pasquale” (Don Pasquale) on March 8
  • “Anna Bolena” by Gaetano Donizetti on April 26
  • “Tristan and Isolde” by Richard Wagner on May 3

These presentations respond to the acceptance of the public who attended the previous three seasons of opera projections on the mega screen, as well as to the recent sold outs at the operas in the Teatro Peón Contreras.

Benjamin Ramirez said that to date, the association in charge has presented 31 different operas in 51 shows, attended by over 5,600 spectators, which shows the growing interest in this genre by music lovers in Merida.

Thanks to state of the art technologies and high-definition image of the Mayamax screen, audiences can witness the staging with great realism, “as if it was a live performance,” the promoter said.

The “Opera Yucatan A.C. Association” has previously presented Puccini’s La Boheme , Samson and Dalila in Saint- Saens, Mozart ‘s The Magic Flute, Bizet’s Carmen and Puccini’s Turandot, among others, as part of the selected repertoire of this genre. “The number of opera fans has increased significantly in the city of Merida in the last few years,” Ramirez said.

The organizer mentioned that the Wagner Festival for Summer this year will feature projections of the best operas of this famous German composer.

In 2010, Opera Yucatan was created by enthusiasts of this genre to promote art and culture in the State, with the support of Miguel Escobedo and Adolfo Patrón Lujan, board members of the Yucatan Symphonic Orchestra Fund.
