Katy Mikhailova

Next Saturday, November 10, a gala will be held at the National Auditorium in Madrid promoted by Movimiento Sin Piedad (MSP) and sponsored by the restaurant group El Pimiento Verde. It is about honoring women through a musical journey through the history of Spanish operas and zarzuela.

The concert program focuses, on the one hand, on arrangements of operas by Juan Paulo Gómez whose protagonists have suffered gender violence ( Carmen, Tosca, Madame Butterfly ) being the world premiere of said adaptations and, on the other hand, zarzuela arias and traditional songs where the beauty and beauty of women are highlighted.

For this gala, a chamber orchestra called Ellas “Dicen No” has been created, which has the peculiarity that all its performers are women. The main soloist is the violinist Elena Mikhailova who in turn has also composed a hymn called Sin Piedad published by Universal Music Spain, which will be performed at the concert, premiering the version for violin and orchestra.

In addition, the pianists Edith Peña, the soprano Mercedes Granda, the tenor Ricardo Muñiz, the baritone Quique Bustos and the mariachi Los Charros de Jalisco will participate. The participation of the Honduran director Oscar David Barahona stands out, invited by the embassy of the Republic of Honduras of Spain and the San Pedro Sula City Council.

During the gala, the MSP awards will be presented to Metro Madrid, to Dr. Antonio Solvas (ASISA), the Bulldog Producer and the castanet performer Lucero Tena. Tickets are on sale for €15 and €20 at the National Auditorium box office, at www.entradasinaem.es and by calling 902224949.
