The Teatro de la Maestranza is an opera house located in Seville, Spain.[1] The theatre was conceived to be one of the main cultural venues of the Seville Expo '92,[3] and the first performance took place in 1991, shortly before the inauguration of the International Expo. The theatre was re-refurnished in 2005.[3] Although the Teatro de la Maestranza is mainly devoted to opera,[1] there are also performances of Zarzuela (Spanish operetta) and other musical performances.[1] The resident orchestra is the Royal Seville Symphony Orchestra (ROSS).[4] and the artistic director is Pedro Halffter.[5] The theatre is the ROSS’ main concert venue and the home of the Choir of the Friends' Society of the Maestranza Theatre.[6] On 16 July 1992, during a rehearsal at the Teatro de la Maestranza for a performance by the Opéra national de Paris of Verdi's Otello, a suspended platform which formed part of the scenery collapsed onto the stage, killing a female member of the chorus and injuring a further 41 people, several of them seriously.[7] References[edit]
