HIGH NOTES Classical Christmas Concerts Take Centre Stage

There’s a festive feast in store for classical music aficionados on Lanzarote this Christmas as the island hosts a duo of concerts during the holiday season.

Mezzo soprano Belen Elvira (pictured) will be hitting the high notes at the Teatro Municipal tomorrow, Wednesday 22nd December. With a lyrically led performance which draws on the classic operatic works of composers such as Dvorak and Bizet. Elvira will be accompanied by the pianists Juan Antonio and Alvarez Parejo and the event gets underway from 21.00.

Whilst on Boxing Day the atmospheric environs of the Cueva de los Verdes provides the ideal backdrop for a benefit concert in aid of the recently created ALanEM, a charitable body dedicated to improving the lives of those coping with multiple sclerosis on the island. And will feature the Ensemble Arione, comprised of soprano Dan Shen, mezzo soprano Kang Ni Ke, tenor Wei Wu and pianista Luigi Marzola. Who together will be interpreting some of the most famous arias and duets from the world of opera. Tickets cost €20 and the concert starts at 21.00.
