Our focus is early, religious music with an accent on vocal polyphony and renaissance, enriched with a wealthy variety of pieces that are fit for the time of year. Together with the stunning locations of churches as early as the 16th century we think these performances will hopefully leave you with an unforgettable impression.

Desde Música en las Montañas nos enorgullece anunciar las próximas actuaciones de la ópera barroca "Dido y Eneas", escrita en el año 1689 por el compositor inglés Henry Purcell.

Desde mayo hemos organizado ensayos consistentes. Contamos como Wim Zwaag como director musical de la ópera, compositor, director de orquesta y pianista profesional, que vive en el pueblo de Cañar, en las Alpujarras. Tenemos, a su vez, la gran suerte de contar con Anja Wilbrink, miembro de la Ópera Flamenca de Amberes, interpretando el papel principal de “Dido”. El director de escena es Robert King, profesional de teatro inglés y profesor, que ahora reside en Pórtugos. La orquesta está compuesta por músicos locales, junto con personas de fuera de la región y fuera de España. Al igual que el resto del grupo de ópera, la orquesta cuenta con varios músicos profesionales. Todos están donando generosamente su tiempo a este emocionante proyecto.

El evento será de entrada gratuita, por lo que no será posible reservar entradas anticipadas. Le recomendamos que, para poder disfrutar de la actuación, llegue temprano al teatro para asegurar un asiento.

Queremos agredecer para la colaboracion de los ayuntamientos de Motril, Orgiva and Nerja, y la iglesia de Cañar.

Te gustaria ayudar como voluntario en las noches de las actuaciones? (como dar la bienvenida al público, ayudar a los espectadores a encontrar su asiento, y asistir en general). Ponte en contacto con nosotros!

Sinopsis de la Ópera:

Dido, viuda Reina de Cartago, espera recibir la propuesta de matrimonio del príncipe troyano Eneas, que se dirige a Italia, donde encontrará una nueva Troya. Dido y Eneas están enamorados, pero a Dido le preocupa que su amor pueda socavar su capacidad reinar cual reina fuerte. Sus cortesanos la persuaden de que un matrimonio sería una buena decisión para ambos países, y las nupcias se planifican.

Brujas traman la destrucción de Dido y la Hechicera evoca una tormenta, que habrá de tomar lugar mientras la pareja real disfruta de una excursión al bosque. La tormenta comienza, y los cortesanos se apresuran a regresar a la ciudad, mientras que un Mercurio falso comunica a Eneas que debe abandonar a Dido y navegar hacia Italia, de acuerdo con la voluntad de Jove. Eneas y sus marineros se preparan para partir, para el deleite de las brujas, quienes planean quemar la ciudad de Cartago. Eneas abandona Dido, cuyo enojo y pena son demasiado graves para soportar. Dido toma fin a su vida una vez sola, y canta el inquietante "Dido's Lament" antes de su muerte final. La ópera concluye con el luto de cupidos.

Review

A TASTE OF GOOD THINGS TO COME – BUBION CHURCH, OCTOBER 2017.

As many of you know, in October 2017 we had been planning to present the opera Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell with the participation of professional singers who had generously agreed to come to the Alpujarras for the project. Unfortunately, due to the illness of one of the principals, we had to cancel but so as to make the most of the singers and musicians who were able to come and the many hours of rehearsals that had already taken place, we decided to offer a concert in the church in Bubion instead. Musicians are nothing if not versatile and it is a tribute to everyone who took part that we were able to put together such an enjoyable evening in such a short time. The programme not only included some pieces from Dido and Aeneas but also instrumental and choral works from the classical repertoire. Sincere thanks to everyone who participated in providing a truly joyous evening of music.

Emboldened by success, we are now planning to mount a full-scale experimental version of Dido and Aeneas in the autumn of 2018. It promises to surprise and delight. You can take part or just come and enjoy the performance. There are more details on this website and those of you who were on the Music in the Mountains website and elect to continue receiving emails will hear from us direct.

Meanwhile thank you again to those who performed in Bubion and to those who braved the cold night and hard seats to listen and applaud.

Celebracion Musical en honor de Cat

El 17 de septiembre hemos celebrado un homenaje en Ferreirola y Mecina, con 20 actuaciones en 6 lugares. Estaba un dia inolvidable. Para una impression puedes ver las photos de Alicia Gómez Soblechero y los de Maxi Kohan

Gracias a todos los que participaron en el maravilloso evento del 17 de septiembre. Habia alrededor de 100 intérpretes y al menos 500 personas de público a lo largo del evento.

He estado adorable recibiendo felicitaciones sobre el evento de músicos y público

Uno de los comentarios favoritos fue: " Muchísimas gracias por organizar el homenaje a Cat. Pensando en el pasado, estuve en el festival música en las montañas de 2007, recuerdo su felicidad en traer y juntar a músicos de difierentes lugares y culturas. Recuerdo la constancia y aparentemente sin esfuerzo en la forman en la que ella organizaba todo. Recuerdo el placer que tenía en conocer a toda esa gente diferente y hablarle de la cultura y la vida en Ferreirola y sus alrededores. Recuerdo también su talento musical. Me pareció que capturaba todos esos aspectos de su vida maravillosa, pero también producía algo que era distintivamente propio. Me diverti muchísimo "

Music in the Mountains is proud to be able to announce the forthcoming performances of the baroque opera "Dido and Aeneas", written in 1689 by the English composer Henry Purcell.

Regular rehearsals have been taking place since May. The musical director of the opera is Wim Zwaag, a professional composer, conductor and pianist who lives in the village of Cañar in the Alpujarras, and we are lucky to have Anja Wilbrink, member of the Flemish Opera of Antwerp, playing the lead role of Dido. Stage director is Robert King, English theatre practitioner and teacher, now living in Pórtugos. The orchestra is composed of local musicians along with people from outside the region - and outside Spain. In common with the rest of the opera group, the orchestra boasts a number of professional musicians. Everyone will be giving their time freely to this exciting project.

This is a free to enter event so it is not possible to reserve tickets in advance. To ensure that you can enjoy the opera we advise you to arrive early at the theatre in order to secure your seat.

We would like to thank for the collaboration of the town halls of Motril, Orgiva and Nerja, and the church of Cañar.

Would you like to help as a volunteer on the nights of the performances? (like : welcoming the public, showing people to their seats, and being of general assistance). Please get in touch with us!

Story synopsis:

Dido, the widowed Queen of Carthage, waits to receive the proposal of marriage from the Trojan Prince Aeneas, who is on his way to Italy, where he will found a new Troy. Dido and Aeneas are in love, but she is concerned that her love will undermine her ability to be a strong Queen. Her courtiers persuade her that a marriage would be good for both countries, and the nuptials are planned.

Witches plot Dido’s destruction and the Sorceress conjures a storm, to break out when the royal couple are enjoying an excursion to the woods. The storm duly breaks, and the courtiers hasten back to town, while a false Mercury tells Aeneas he must leave Dido and sail for Italy, according to the will of Jove. Aeneas and his sailors prepare to leave, to the delight of the witches, who further plot to burn the city of Carthage. Aeneas parts from Dido. Her anger and grief are too much to bear and she kills herself once he has gone. She sings the haunting ‘Dido’s Lament’ before her final death. The opera is concluded with the mourning of cupids.

2016 - 17th of September

Musical Celebration of Cat's Life

On September the 17th we celebrated a memorial in Ferreirola and Mecina, with 20 acts at 6 locations. It was an unforgettable day. To get an impression you can see photos made by Alicia Gómez Soblechero and a set made by Maxi Kohan

Thank you to everyone who took part in the wonderful event on 17 September. There were around 100 performers all together and at least 500 in the audience over the course of the event.
I has been lovely to receive comments about the event from musicians and audience members.

One of our favourites was this: “Thank you so much for organising the commemoration of Cat. Thinking back to the Música en las Montanas festival I went to in 2007, I remember her happiness in bringing together musicians from different places and cultural backgrounds. I remember the seamless and apparently effortless way in which she organised everything. I remember the pleasure she took in getting to know all these different people, in talking about the culture and life of Ferreirola and surrounding villages. I remember her musicianship too. It seemed to me that you captured all these aspects of her life beautifully, but also produced something which was distinctively your own. I enjoyed it very much.”
