CHOIR

Start of main content

The current Choir of the Opera was created in the year 1989, its first director being D. Fernando Menéndez Viejo.

Its artistic debut took place in 1990 with the titles La Bohème and Don Pasquale. In 1993, D. Luis García Santana assumes the position of director of the formation. During these years, the choir debuts with La Traviata in the Palacio Valdés Theatre in Avilés, as well as in Santander and Bilbao. Moreover, the choir was invited to participate in some titles of the Zarzuela Festival of Oviedo: La Gran Vía, Gigantes y cabezudos, La Revoltosa and La verbena de La Paloma.

The recording for the seal RTVE Music of Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod meant a milestone in the history of the choir. During the Opera season 2004/2005, the Cuban director Dª Helena Herrera took the position of director of the formation. From the year 2015, D. Francisco Javier Aizpiri Múgica performed the director position until November 2015. During this phase, the choir reached high levels of artistic quality with titles like Tannhäuser, The Rake´s Progress, Il Trovatore and Lucia di Lammermoor, and more recently with the great success achieved in Peter Grimes, Macbeth and Nabucco.

From March this year, the formation will be managed by Elena Mitrevska. The Macedonian master has been a member of the Arnold Schoenberg Chor of Vienna during seven seasons, and since the year 2012 she is a musical assistant of the Theater an der Wien Choir in the Austrian capital, one of the most prestigious and avant-grade of the European area.
