Outstanding international and national guests are part of the Teatro Digital offer in September
The initiative of Bancolombia and the Mayor’s Office of Bogotá, through the District Institute of the Arts and its stage, the Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo, has attracted more than 7 million spectators during the months of isolation. In September, Teatro Digital will have the Colombian group Los Rolling Ruanas, performances by the Spanish violagambista Jordi Savall, the Folkloric Ballet of the University of Guadalajara in Mexico and the National Symphony Orchestra of Colombia.
Since the beginning of the isolation stage dictated by the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), the Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo has not stopped its virtual offer through the Teatro Digital platform, which premieres a new show every Thursday and that in five months has attracted more than 7 million viewers.
In September, Teatro Digital will begin its programming with the transmission of the first show that was recorded at the Teatro Mayor after the approval of its biosafety protocol. From September 3 to 10, you will be able to see the special concert of the Colombian group Los Rolling Ruanas, as part of the Lo Nuestro strip.
In a renewed show, full of life and energy, the essence of Los Rolling Ruanas arrives imposingly on the stage of the Teatro Mayor, including its entire sound universe in an extensive and varied repertoire. In this presentation, the group covers its most iconic, emotional, strong, romantic songs and, of course, a couple of inevitable covers to remember its genesis.
From September 10 to 17, one of the most important figures in early music, the Spanish violagambist and conductor Jordi Savall, will arrive at Teatro Digital. The artist stars in the concert The Slavery Routes, one of his most acclaimed projects. The presentation, which will be broadcast as part of the Grandes Espectáculos strip, part of a dark episode of humanity: those almost four centuries, from 1492 to 1888 (year in which slavery was abolished in Brazil), in which the countries Europeans deported more than 25 million Africans into slavery.
From September 17 to 24, in the Ventana de América strip, Corazón de México, a montage of the Folkloric Ballet of the University of Guadalajara, will be broadcast. This show is made up of a series of dance pictures and musical numbers representative of various regions and periods of Mexico, characterized by their latent cultural identity. More than 100 artists on stage, live music and overflowing passion is the proposal of the Folkloric Ballet of the University of Guadalajara, which has more than 50 years of experience and countless international tours and presentations.
To end the month, Teatro Digital will have the National Symphony Orchestra of Colombia (OSNC), from September 24 to October 1. As part of its Brahms I Cycle, the Symphony will perform Symphony No. 1 in C minor, op. 68 by the German composer, under the direction of the American Irwin Hoffman.
