The Spanish is nothing if not picaresque. It’s there in the underpinnings of his national icons. However, the latest survey by the Sociological Research Center shows that not only do most Spaniards believe the measures adopted by the government to contain the corona pandemic were necessary; now  that the lockdown  has been lifted, they want the authorities to impose stricter controls,  including a re-imposition of confinement, where needed. A near-perfect
unanimity  of  deeds  and sentiments, and quite a departure from what one would  normally expect from the highly individualistic picaros.

The Teatro Real has resumed its activity after all programming was cancelled in March due to the pandemic. It has now scheduled 27 ‘La Triavata’ performances between July 1 and 29. All of the pertinent safety measures (masks, hand sanitizers, social distancing) have been adopted, which means only 869 spectators will be allowed to attend each performance. There’s a free presentation of ‘La Traviata’ on My opera Player this coming July 15. A fabulous treat! Don’t miss it.
