Coinciding with the 200th anniversary of the Opera "La Cenerentola" by Gioachino Rossini, an ambitious project that began three years ago with mezzo-soprano Ayana Sambuu, outstanding student of Maestro Paolo Montarsolo, and Unurma Janchiv, artistic director of the Creative Curating agency based in London.
The objective was twofold: to bring together a cast of international soloists (among which is a Burgalian), to offer a Gala at the Palace of Culture in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia on June 29, and to represent for the first time "La Cenerentola" "By Rossini at the State Academic Theater of the Opera and Ballet of the capital on July 2.
To this end, the participation of the Mongolian Symphony Orchestra led by the prestigious Italian director Jacopo Sipari of Pescasseroli and soloists among which stand out the baritone Franco Cerri (IT) of the Puccini Foundation, the bass Pietro Toscano (IT) , the soprano Concetta Pepere (IT) who is also the first violin of the Teatro Verdi in Salermo or the Mongolian baritone Enkbat Tuvshinjargal, soloist of the Mariinsky Theater in Saint Petersburg. The Spanish tenor Ignacio Prieto, who already made his debut last year at the Villa de Torlonia Theater in Rome, and the mezzo-soprano Ayana Sambuu lead the cast.
The participation of Ignacio Prieto in both events is an unprecedented event twice, being the first Spanish tenor to perform Zarzuela at the Palace of Culture of the capital of Mongolia, and becoming the first Spanish soloist to star in a production at the Teatro State Academic of Ulaanbaatar.
Supported by the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia, the project has received funding from large Asian corporations such as MIAT Mongolian Airlines or Monnis Group. Mongolia is thus a country in rapid growth, whose public demands a quality cultural offer without renouncing its deep-rooted tradition.
Both the representation of "La Cenerentola" and the Gala, which was broadcast live on television throughout the country, have received excellent criticism from different specialized media, so Creative Curating does not rule out the possibility of setting new dates in the United Kingdom or Spain.
Recital Lírico of Marta Vela and Ignacio Prieto returns to Burgos with a Christmas Concert that has counted with the participation of two great international artists, the mezzosopramo Ayana Sambuu (Italy) and the soprano Haydée Dabusti (Argentina). The concert, presented as a highlight of the Christmas cultural program of the City of Burgos, received a strong media coverage in the press, radio and television.
The repertoire chosen by the soloists brought together a selection of pieces by Puccini, Rossini, Albéniz and Agustín Lara, among others, which delighted the audience.
Ignacio Prieto has been selected to represent FNAC at the Fair Saturday 2016, the initiative that aims to promote culture and solidarity through art. The tenor offered a recital in favor of the association ASPACE Zaragoza during the presentation of his second album with the pianist Marta Vela.
