The government approves the preliminary draft of the standard that will regulate the operation of the lyrical institution. It will be a match for those who already have the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía or the National Library
The Council of Ministers approved the bill for the Teatro Real during its meeting on Tuesday. The lyrical colosseum will thus be able to have its own regulatory standard, similar to those that other major Spanish cultural institutions already have, such as the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía Art Center or the National Library of Spain. The regulation will give more autonomy to Spain’s leading opera institution. Among other things, it will establish a new contract framework for artists working with the opera institution, it will adapt the management of a modern opera house to the demands and dynamics of contemporary performing arts worldwide.
With the standard approved on the proposal of the Minister of Culture and Sports, Miquel Iceta, the Fundación del Teatro Real maintains its configuration as an institution attached to the General State Administration (AGE), with the Community of Madrid as the founding administration and the Madrid City Council as a collaborating administration.
The law is divided into six chapters that regulate the specifics of the Real, from its nature and legal regime, to the objectives or headquarters of the Fundación del Teatro Real, to its organization, personnel, patrimonial, contractual, budgetary and economic regime. financial.
“It will regulate its own idiosyncrasies and be necessary for the Teatro Real to optimally develop the objectives for which it was created,” says Culture. That is, “the promotion, impetus and dissemination of the lyrical, musical and choreographic arts”. The Ministry also recalls that “the functioning of an organization such as the Teatro Real has specific needs that are sometimes difficult to fit into the general regulations”. “Hence the need to adapt the management of a modern opera house to the demands and dynamics of contemporary performing arts on a European and global level.”
The new law thus establishes a framework for employment contracts “adapted to the conditions of artistic productions, in particular as regards the special relationship of artists who exercise their activity in the performing, audiovisual and musical arts, as well as people who carry out technical or support activities, which ensure their stability in the labor market”.
The text proposes to include the Teatro Real in the fourteenth additional provision of Law 14/2011 of June 1 on science, technology and innovation, as is the case with the Prado, the National Library and the Spanish Film Library. «Including the Teatro Real in this facility means consolidating the theater’s innovative, technological and investigative role, to position it as one of the most innovative and technological Spanish cultural institutions through the ‘My Opera Player’ application, at the forefront of sustainability and to be able to develop research projects on Spanish opera”, emphasizes Culture.
