Under the Stars

Orihuela is set to enjoy a summer under the stars with a series of concerts throughout July and August at the city’s María Moliner Library.

The Concerts Under the Stars program features a diverse array of musical and artistic disciplines, taking place weekly, primarily on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m.

The lineup includes a mix of chamber music, theatre, and dance performances.

The series kicked off on Wednesday, July 3, with the concert “La Leyenda de la Armengola.”

Flamenco Fun

It will be followed by a flamenco recital featuring the talented dancer Abril Alfonso on July 10.

On July 23, an evening dedicated to film music will take place, and on July 31, the El Latido Teatral Association will present the play “Amor en Autumn.”

August’s schedule begins with “Piano Night” on the 7th, and on August 13, World Clarinet Day will be celebrated with performances of pieces and adaptations specially written for the clarinet.

The cycle will conclude with a “Noche de Zarzuela” on August 21 and the “Noche de la Flute Travesera” on August 28.

The Councillor for Culture Gonzalo Montoya emphasised the significance of this initiative, stating, “We are very excited to present for the first time the ‘Concerts Under the Stars,’ a series of musical events that will illuminate the summer nights in the city of Orihuela.”
