Still with the warm applause received the night before in his memory, for his masterful direction of The Master Singers of Nuremberg on the same stage, Pablo Heras-Casado, principal guest conductor of the Teatro Real, having led more than twelve productions in the Madrid Opera House, received the first artistic award of the evening, presented by the Minister of Culture, Tourism and Sport of the Community of Madrid, Mariano de Paco.

Heras-Casado recalled his first time at the Teatro Real, 18 years ago, and how here ‘he has had the opportunity to take on some of the greatest artistic challenges of his career. Here I have grown personally and professionally’. The maestro highlighted the enormous teamwork that takes place in this theatre, which has made it one of the most important in the world.
