Montserrat Caballé returns to Madrid stage after seven years
By:
ThinkSpain , Monday, January 9, 2012

Montserrat Caballé, who will turn 79 in April, is coming back to the stage in Madrid on June 9th after an absence of seven years to perform a concert with her daughter. 

The soprano told journalists today that it had been very hard trying to "find a date".

 "They have been asking me to do it for some time, but we could never find a date to suit everyone. I am the first to be surprised by this return and by the fact that it has been

possible at all to organise", joked the artist, who was recently the subject of a special tribute in the "Liceo" to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her debut at the theatre.

The Catalan soprano could not remember when she last performed in Madrid, but added that it had been "a long time ago, too long".

Tickets have already gone on sale for the concert to be held at the Madrid Arena on June 9th.

During the recital, "Gracias Montserrat", she will be accompanied by the Orchestra and Choir of the Comunidad de Madrid and the performance is expected to last an hour and a half.

 "La" Caballé in fact gave her last concert in Madrid in the Real Theatre in December 2004, when she sand a concert version of "Cleopatra" by Jules Massenet, which she had tried to perform for the first time in 2002.

It was her first complete opera in the Real, although she had given concerts and recitals since 1998, and she was again accompanied by her daughter, who played the part of Octavia.
