Teatro Real (Royal Opera of Madrid) is one of the world's leading opera houses. Founded in 1818, the theater is located in front of the Palacio Real and was inaugurated in 1850 with Donizetti's La Favorita. It has hosted the most renowned singers and composers of the past two centuries, including Giuseppe Verdi, Diaghilev, Nijinsky, and Stravinsky. Teatro Real was awarded the Best Opera House in the World at the International Opera Awards 2021. 

In a brief tour of the surroundings before and after romanticism, the Cuarteto de Solistas de la Orquesta del Teatro Real returns to New York with a program that includes Dvořák's "American" Quartet No. 12, composed in the United States in 1893 and Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga's Third Quartet, a classic of Spanish chamber music.
