A host of artists will perform in Madrid to raise funds for the Adeje centre
This morning details were announced of the Lyrica festival that is taking place in the Teatro Real in Madrid on October 20th to raise funds for the Adeje-based Asociación San Juan.
Present at the press conference were Adeje councillor for social welfare and diversity Isabel Fernández González, the president of the Asociación San Juan, Ana Oneida Borges Medina, soprano and honorary patron of the association, Isabel Rey, José Manuel de la Cruz from the concert sponsor Endesa and the executive producer of the gala event, Carlos Marén.
Isabel Rey said that this year there would be many top European artists who would be using this concert to perform for the first time in Spain, and many others who were disappointed as their schedules wouldn’t permit them to take part. “It’s so moving, that so many people want to take part”, she said. “We have created an event that is loved by the public but by opera singers too…they want to be here, and want to help the Asociaicón San Juan”. International tenors such as Christoph Strehl and Piotr Beczala and soprano Elena Mosuk will join many others on stage, for this lyrical spectacular.
According to the producer “Tickets prices have been designed to allow everyone attend, with prices from €7 to €80”, and are now on sale online (through the Teatro Real website, http://www.teatro-real.com/es/temporada-17-18/conciertos-y-recitales/iv-fiesta-lirica-endesa) with a ‘row zero’ also on sale for those who cannot attend but would like to donate.
Adeje councillor Isabel Fernández Gonzalez congratulated the organisers of the event and the on-going contribution the association make to society. “I have already bought my ticket, and you need to buy yours quickly as they will sell out”, she urged people.
The Asociación San Juan, in Adeje town, is a centre for curative education and social therapy promoting an education and a way of life which promotes human rights and a level of auto- determination, and the integration of individuals who need special assistance. The centre works for the social, cultural and profession integration for adults who have developmental problems and who need special care.
