OperaVision is committed to giving a global stage to the next generation of talent.  Here we travel to Valencia’s prestigious young artists programme, Centre de Perfeccionament del Palau de les Arts, for a joyous evening of music-making.

How is your knowledge of operetta composers: Léhar, Messenger, Offenbach, Strauss? So far so good? What about Reynaldo Hahn, Robert Stolz, Oscar Straus? How about composers of the Spanish lyric-dramatic genre, zarzuela: Gonzalo Roig, Francisco Asenjo Barbieri? Connoisseur or just curious, here is an evening of song and young talent to celebrate.
