OLA Theatres activities and performances during Easter week

In this week of Christian commemoration, we cannot help but remember the beginnings of classical music and opera in our continent, which are related to sacred music; in fact, the Guatemalan musicologist Omar Morales, points out that “the Catholic Church is the only institution that has preserved most of the musical sources that have survived to that time” (Check the origins of Latin American opera below).


For this reason we compile all the activities and concerts of the OLA member theaters for this Holy Week, which you can enjoy whatever your origin, culture, country and language; since classical music and opera is for everyone.


Check out the performances and activities from different parts of the world for this weekend!
