-The Spanish conductor will be making his debut at the Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari with Rossini´s opera seria and returns to Madrid with the great bel-canto diva

Septiembre de 2018
The Madrid-born conductor José Miguel Pérez-Sierra has just triumphed in Chile at the helm of Il Barbiere di Siviglia, by Gioachino Rossini, a composer he has got to know intimately since his early debut more than a decade ago at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro (Italy) which is dedicated to the famous composer´s music. On the 19th October he will conduct the Rossini opera Tancredi in a Pier Luigi Pizzi production at the Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari, known as “The La Scala of the South” in Italy. There will be six performances, alternating between two different casts, which will continue until 25th October (October 19th, 20th, 21st, 23rd, 24th, 25th) after which Pérez-Sierra will immediately return to Madrid where he is expected at the Teatro Real, once again, on the 28th. He will be conducting the legendary Italian soprano Mariella Devia in Madrid and the programme they will perform will focus on some of the choicest Romantic bel-canto repertoire, with which both are in their element. They will be revisiting the final scenes of the Donizetti operas Maria Stuarda and Anna Bolena, accompanied by the Teatro Real Orchestra and Choir.
Later engagements for Pérez-Sierra include La donna del lago (Rossini) at the Opéra de Marseille (France), Tosca (Puccini) at the Opéra-Théâtre in Metz (France) and the zarzuela El barberillo de Lavapiés (Barbieri) at the Teatro de La Zarzuela in Madrid.
