Opera week in Madrid or how to be more cool

When thinking about opera, I have to admit that the first thing that comes to mind is Montserrat Caballé in the Christmas ad… and of course Julia Roberts in pretty womanno. Although I know some more common names for us ordinary people (without a monocle), like “Carmen” or “La Traviata”, my knowledge cooltureta about opera cannot be stretched much further.


But my curiosity surpasses that of cats and if I add to that the fact that in May, from the 6th to the 8th, Madrid is going to become the European capital of operait is clear that I am going to investigate what the topic “de pe a pa” is about.


The Teatro Real will host this conference because the world of opera wants to get on the bandwagon of technology so that its works reach a larger audience (seeing a trio via mobile will never be so elegant).

What do I want to sell you with all this? Power, friend. You can’t imagine how sexy (or freakdepending on how you look at it) that you may be trying to flirt with someone by telling them how the performance touched your soul without understanding a word.


Let’s start with the most important thing: the price. It is not as expensive as you think, you can go for less than €50 (even €10, but you will need binoculars there).

On the subject of clothing: do not suffer, you do not have to look in Youtube How to tie a tie, today you can wear a normal dress (it is important that your concept of normality is truly “normal”), although if you want to use your cousin’s wedding dress, you can.


Something that you cannot forget is to look before what the work is about, basically because if you do not understand the language it is in, you will not be able to posturing so much about her And above all, if you are going to take photos with your mobile (rule no. 1 of posturing) remove the flash And the sound!!

If this doesn’t work for you, you can always hum a song to your partner Old Morla either love of lesbians.
