Opera - 2014 Season
From april 1st to april 8
Following the modernist tradition that characterized our house since its very inception, the Teatro Colón lyric season will be inaugurated by the opera of the 21st Century with Caligula. Premiered in Frankfurt in 2006, the work by Detlev Glanert holds absolute topicality and great communicative power. Having studied under Hans Werner Henze, Glanert achieves in this piece the perfect combination between his refinement for instrumental and vocal composition, and the enthralling account of the last days of a powerful man pierced by cruelty and insanity.
Ballet - 2014 season
From March 5 to march 9
Having closed our 2013 season, this magnificent ballet by Tchaikovsky inaugurates a new year full of dance. Swan Lake is one of the paradigms of the 21st Century ballet; with its beautiful white acts and the eternal confrontation between good and evil, embodied by Odette and Odile, this classic of ballet pieces is always worth revisiting.

Colón contemporáneo - 2014 season
March, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th
We will be offered with the Latin American premiere of the concert version of The Little Match Girl, by Helmut Lachenmann, based upon the classic story by Hans Christian Andersen. Through a stream of consciousness playing around with meteorological situations and Leonardo Da Vinci and Gundrun Ensslin’s texts, we are presented with cold, darkness, heat, wind, volcanoes, and music depicting freezing as a metaphor of society’s indifference towards the individual. Lachenmann will visit Argentina for the first time in over thirty years to supervise the rehearsals and perform as narrator.
