The Tenerife auditorium in Santa Cruz is again about to host the annual Tenerife Opera Festival, with this year’s programme featuring performances of Verdi’s Falstaff and Puccini’s Madam Butterfly. Between 22 September and 22 October opera lovers will have the last chance to see the festival in its present form before it joins with its Gran Canarian equivalent to try to increase the quality of performances even further. There will also be an additional composition of Un baúl lleno de ópera (a trunk full of opera), a work developed here in Tenerife and aimed at familiarising children with this wonderful musical form.
Tickets for the both operas are priced between €20 and €55, with children’s entry for €6. They are available online from General Tickets, or from the Auditorium box office, or from Opera Tenerife by phone on 922 568 600 or 9o2 317 327. Opera Tenerife
