This week we bring you five leisure plans to enjoy your free time. And that is that the Region of Madrid never sleeps, and has an agenda full of activities. Nature, culture, art, and musicals await you to enjoy with friends, family, couples or on your own. We provide you the clues, it's up to you!
1. Firmado JANO, carteles de cine
The Palacio de Perales, headquarters of the Spanish Film Library, pays homage until March 18 to Francisco Fernández-Zarza Pérez (Madrid, 1922-1992), who, known artistically as JANO, has undoubtedly been one of the most popular Spanish film posters. The exhibition, curated by Elena Cervera and the son of JANO, Victor Zarza, exhibits more than a hundred pieces, including posters, hand programmes, advertising guides and original designs, which show how he made the drawings that would later go to the printing press for publication. Don't miss this exhibition, which deserved the recognition and admiration of both the public - who came to watch the films, sometimes motivated by their designs - and directors, actors, producers and other professionals from the world of cinema.
Enjoy opera at the Teatro Real thanks to Giuseppe Verdi's revival of Aida. The Madrid coliseum, in the midst of the Bicentennial celebration and the twentieth anniversary of its reopening, hosts this opera in four acts with stage direction, set design and costumes by Hugo de Ana. Nicola Luisotti, along with the Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro Real and a triple cast of the best voices of today, vibrates with this story until March 25th.
3. EnFoco. LUKASZ MICHALAK
The metropolitan cultural center CentroCentro is showing us, until April 22nd in the EnFoco cycle, the exhibition Floating in John's Universe, by Lukasz Michalak. Through a series of photographs we will get to know first-hand how this Warsaw-born artist lived, during his time as a personal assistant to John Evans, a pioneer in the fight for the rights of people with disabilities in the UK.
4. Madagascar. El musical en vivo
Since last February, the stage of the Teatro de la Luz Philips Gran Vía in Madrid host one of the most eagerly awaited premieres of the season: 'Madagascar'.
