The season kicks off

The season kicks off at Palma’s Teatre Principal. A total of 52 shows make up the program for the 2023/2024 academic year, where there will be no shortage of theatre, music, dance, opera and much more. The vice-president of the Consell de Mallorca and councillor of Culture and Heritage, Antònia Roca, has emphasized that the Principal opens its doors to all the citizens of the island, for all ages and all tastes, because “culture is and has to be for everyone”.

The aim of Roca’s cultural project is that all residents of the island come this season to the public hall to enjoy some of the performances. The vice-president and councillor insist that the Teatre Principal de Palma has to be the nerve centre of the performing arts in Mallorca and, in this line, has announced that the Consell de Mallorca is working on different initiatives to encourage the influx of the public. In this sense, he has shown his willingness to launch a project of realization of the public hall: “We want the corridors of the theatre to tell its history with emblematic posters and props that are now stored. In this way, it will also be made available to Mallorcans”.

In addition, Antònia Roca explained that, for the first time, the Teatre Principal will open its doors during the Nit de l’Art to exhibit the work of Las Musas del Principal. This is accompanied by music to the rhythm of jazz. Therefore, it encourages Mallorcans to include the Principal in their artistic night route next Saturday, September 23.

Cuatro Jinetes and Reis del món kick off the season

The public theatre gets underway this Thursday, September 14, with the premiere of Four Horsemen, a co-production of the company Mucha Muchacha and the Teatre Principal de Palma. The folklore and traditional dances of Spain merge with new contemporary trends in this dance show that features live music by Los Voluble.

Antònia Roca presented the work today with the Mallorcan dancer Belén Martí, one of the four members of Mucha Muchacha. In fact, she stressed that the company will also offer an intensive workshop this Saturday, September 16, for people with or without dance experience.

The programming of the Teatro Principal continues on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday 17 with the revival of Reis del món, the theatrical version of the novel of the same name by Sebastià Alzamora, which was one of the big hits with audiences last season. Reis del món, with dramaturgy by Josep Maria Miró and direction by José Martret, is a play performed by Blai Llopis, Carme Conesa, Toni Gomila and Jordi Figueras. In addition to the performances at Palma’s Teatre Principal, this production of the Teatre Principal will also be staged at the Teatre d’Artà on September 22 and at the Teatre des Born in Ciutadella on October
