On Wednesday 8 June at 8:00 pm, the world premiere of the opera “Yo, Dalí” will take place, to be followed by two further performances on 10 and 11 June at the same time. The work was composed by Xavier Benguerel with a libretto by Jaime Salom and commissioned by the Spanish Ministry of Culture to commemorate, in 2004, the centenary of the birth of the Catalan painter Salvador Dalí. The score is published by Tritó Edicions.

The day before the premiere, on 7 June at 7:30 pm, the authors will speak at a conference moderated by Juan Ángel Vela del Campo.

The lead roles in “Yo, Dalí” will be played by Joan Martín-Royo, as Dalí, and Marisa Martins, as Gala. The rest of the cast is made up by Antoni Comas, Carlos Cremades, Vicenç Esteve Madrid, José Antonio García,  Xavier Mendoza, Hasmik Nahapetyan, Alex Sanmartí, Claudia Schneider and Mariano Viñuales, among others, accompanied by the Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid and the Choir of the Teatro de la Zarzuela, under the baton of Antonio Fauró.
Miquel Ortega is responsible for the music direction and Xavier Abertí, the stage direction, in this co-production by Operadehoy, the Teatro de La Zarzuela and the Gran Teatro del Liceo.
