Today Queen Letizia visited the workshops of the Royal Theater, where scenarios and costumes are created for the great operas and shows in Madrid. The behind the scene visit was to get familiar with the current trending of Opera as well as social projects involved.
The Teatro Real is considered the first institution of the performing arts in Spain, becoming a national reference opera and one of the main Spanish cultural institutions. The institution also enjoys a significant international projection. His Majesty the King of Spain is the chairperson of the Royal Theatre Foundation.
Upon arrival Queen presided over the official meeting in which topics like How to attract opera to young people were discussed and Queen was briefed about the pedagogical and social projects in children’s education and music therapy.
Letizia also enjoyed a tour of the theatre and the backstage including Orchestra Room, the Workshops of the artistic zone, and the Workshop of tailoring, characterization and hairdressing.
Queen was informed about the technical sections of the Royal Theater in which the professionals of the activities exhibited the specialization acquired in the institution in areas of the performing arts such as- tailoring, characterization, management, props, etc.
Letizia met the representatives and officials responsible for training programs conducted at the Royal Theatre. Various training projects such as The Real Junior”, aimed at schools and families, and the “University A Scene”, a pioneering program that, from its creation in 2010, has allowed more than 8,000 students from more than 20 universities and schools of artistic education discover the intricacies of the Royal Theater, were discussed.
Queen Letizia also had a brief meeting with the members of the Company Committee and the Management Committee and guests.
For today’s visit, Queen Letizia chose a simple yet effective look. She brought back her Zara Military Jacket that we first saw in November 2016 for the final engagement during the State visit to Portugal.
The cotton jacket with a raised velvet collar and passementerie detail on the front and sleeves is finished with gold-toned buttons on the front and velvet-covered cuffs.
Letizia paired the jacket with soft white Hugo Boss ‘Banora’ silk blouse that remain available at Hugo Boss UK in limited sizes for £169 and black slim trousers.
Upon arrival Letizia was seen wearing a black mid-length trench coat. the label of the coat is still unidentified.
Letizia complimented the whole black look with her Bimba Y Lola gold hammered-effect hoop earrings.
Today’s look was quite similar to Queen’s look for the board meeting with BBVA Foundation earlier this year.
