Lara is such an exception that last year she joined the exclusive group of women who have conducted a lyric performance at the Teatro de la Zarzuela, like María Rodrigo (1915), Montserrat Font (2008) or Yi-Chen Lin (2014). On 12 May 2022 he took musical command of Alcalá’s Don Gil, because the titular conductor, Lucas Macías, was unable to attend. Another coincidence? No, talent that thrives.
Chapter 40! In Concierto Desorden we welcome conductor Lara Diloy, with whom we talk about working as a team, moving, delegating and accompanying. About coming from the horn, finding yourself in the choir and staying at the baton. About how to choose one, Harry Potter style! Of references, of being an example and of work as an answer. Of Lydia Tar, croquettes, omelettes and confidence! Of letting the music give you the answers… and not stop asking yourself constantly!
Lara Diloy returns to the Asturian capital to conduct the Gala Lírica that the Ópera de Oviedo is organising as part of its 75th anniversary celebrations, as the culmination of a cycle in which the institution has received the city’s Gold Medal and the Best Institution Award at the Ópera XXI, awards that distinguish the most outstanding of the Spanish stages.
Orchestra conductor Lara Diloy has been on the podium for fifteen years in symphonic and lyrical projects of different natures. Her connection with music began with the French horn, but conducting gradually conquered her until she realised that it brought together two of her motivations: working as part of a team and communicating.
