Centre Plácido Domingo
Under the aegis of Plácido Domingo, members of the Centre de Perfeccionament develop their interpretative style, they learn to feel the musical and dramatic nature of the different characters and operas, and study aspects that are so important to any singer such as expression, gestures, the intent of the spoken word, and its theatrical nature. They understand the fundamental idea of the importance of the libretto, the drama, the historical context of each opera, and its influences and consequences, etc.
The Centre’s headquarters are at the Teatre Martín i Soler, a theatre in the Palau de les Arts that can seat 380, where excellent acoustics make it possible to stage numerous activities, especially baroque and classical operas on a smaller scale. It is an ideal opportunity to put into practice the works produced by the Centre itself and meet the general public. The theatre is also the venue for master classes, congresses and discussions with the artists that collaborate with the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía. In essence, theCentre aims to provide complete training for an artist and introduce him/her to a professional career all members of the Centre have the chance to experience firsthand life inside a theatre from a most privileged position.
