The island’s movie theaters have been one of the spaces most affected by the health crisis. Faced with a scenario of closings and capacity reductions, fear on the part of the public and cancellation of premieres by multinationals, it is time to reinvent themselves. This is what they have done at Aficine, one of the major groups in the sector in Mallorca, with the programming of opera, art and musical shows.
The great premieres of national and international cinema coexist in theaters with other screenings. The opera and ballet recitals stand out, with the next screenings in Ocimax of Nutcracker from the Royal Opera House in London and La Traviata, from the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona. They will be on December 10 and 28, respectively. In 2021, the opera programming will continue with new titles.
On the other hand, proposals different from the traditional premieres offer variety on the current Ocimax billboard. An example of this is the FSO Film Symphony Orchestra, with a spectacular end-of-tour concert recorded with 35 cameras, which will be screened from December 4 to 8 with the best image and sound quality. A recital that includes songs from Avengers, Interstellar, Willow, Aladdin, Back to the Future, Jurassic World, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.
This Friday, November 27, the year of discovery is projected, a documentary that travels to Cartagena in 1992 in the form of a documentary. And among the more artistic proposals, Ocimax Hermitage Museum program. The power of art. It tells the great stories and events that have passed through the corridors of this museum, which houses the largest collection of paintings in the world.
One of the programs that will take place at Ocimax from December 2020 to June 2021 is the centenary of the Salzburg Festival. Eight opera events to enjoy in theaters. La Traviata, on December 3; The Magic Flute, on December 17; Le nozze di Figaro, on January 28; Don Carlo, on February 25; La Boheme, on March 11; Salome, April 22; Italiana in Algeri, on May 13; and finally, Aida, on June 10, 2021.
