Zaragoza has been selected to host the International Exhibition in 2008 (from 14th June to 14th September 2008) under the Theme “Water and Sustainable Development”. Zaragoza is my city and I feel very proud of it.
... that is the title of the last work of Nobel prize winner Dario Fo http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/literature/laureates/1997/fo-bio.html which is a call to wake up...using humor.
I am delighted that -in addition to the everynight concerts at Expo Zaragoza 2008 Anfiteatro 43 http://www.expozaragoza2008.es/theblog/?p=32 the Expo and the Zaragoza city council has programmed a variety of cultural events.
For the first time in history and due to Expo 2008, the Teatro Principal http://www.teatroprincipalzaragoza.com/repre.php will open its doors in summer with theater, dance and music shows. Thus, from 13 August to 7 September, "Cómeme el coco, negro" by La Cubana. To end with this theater programme of the Expo period, from 11 to 14 of September, "Hamlet" directed by Juan Diego Botto. Also in September, from 17 to 21, it will be represented "Sitios Saragosse", a production of the Fundation Zaragoza 2008 with direction and playwriting by Mariano Anós.
At another venue, the fantastic Auditorium Conference Hall where the most prestigious conductors, national and international orchestras and unique voices will meet in an excellent cycle of Classical Music directed by Zubin Mehta, for example counting with a Lyrical Gala http://www.auditoriozaragoza.com/ConciertosVisualizacion.aspx?id=153 with Montserrat Caballé and Montserrat Martí, next 5th of September...
So Expo does promise something for everyone. Enjoy
