Queen Letizia: The Top 10 with its own box at the Teatro Real

Last Wednesday it was celebrated the gala of the 10th edition of Top 100 Women Leaders in Spain’organized by magasIN of .

The building was the brainchild of Ferdinand VII, who decided that Madrid deserved an opera house in the style of Paris or London. The first stone was laid on April 13, 1818, but it would take more than three decades to see it completed.

Years later, more works would have to be undertaken due to construction defects, which were also delayed for decades. In 1966 it was opened again to the public, but it was closed again in 1988. Finally, in 1997, Kings Juan Carlos I and Sofia were able to reopen it, from the so-called Royal Box.

Today it is Kings Felipe and Letizia who enjoy the Royal Box, the area always reserved for a possible attendance of the royal family because, not in vain, the Madrid theater is called the Teatro Real, in honor of the monarchs who promoted and cared for it for generations.

The Royal Theater of Madrid boasts of its 200 years of history and, in addition to attending performances, operas and concerts, you can learn more about it through the conferences, workshops and guided tours they organize.

It is also an incomparable setting to celebrate a gala party like the one that brought together an impressive representation of the best female talent in our country on Wednesday, with Las TOP 100.
