Within the framework of the Annual Latin American Opera Meeting that took place between December 13 and 16 at the Teatro Colón, the programming for the 2022 lyrical season was presented.
The presentation was held at the Colón Theater, at the Opera Latin America Annual Meeting, which took place in the Argentine capital between December 13 and 16.
This meeting allows the approach of almost 40 organizations and theaters from all over Latin America. It is organized by the Latin American Opera Organization (OLA), a non-profit organization founded in 2007 with the aim of disseminating and promoting lyrical art in the region. Among other activities, OLA promotes co-productions and the circulation of artists.
El Solís was the founder and Montevideo was the headquarters of the organization’s constitutive meeting. Among the institutions that make up OLA are the Real Theater in Madrid, the Colón Theater in Buenos Aires, the Municipal Theater in Santiago de Chile, and the Teatro Mayor in Colombia. In this edition, the Solís theater was elected again to be a member of the entity’s Board of Directors.
In addition to its 2022 lyrical season, Solís presented its sustainability plan, which aims at responsible environmental management.
