GAZPACHO DAY - 17th MAY MÁLAGA



The coming Friday  May 17th, the “Día del Gazpacho” (Gazpacho Day) will be celebrated in Malaga. 2013 will be the second edition of Gazpacho Day, which is a tribute to this refreshing, healthy and typically Andalusian drink, which has conquered both our hearts and our palates. During Gazpacho Day, gazpacho kits will be sold in the Central Market. These packets will include everything you need to whip up a tasty gazpacho at home. Supermarket chain Eroski in the shopping centre Larios has also signed up to the initiative, and during the day will be offering free samples of gazpacho from its own brand line. Another business that’s joined forces with Gazpacho Day in Málaga is olive oil brand Hojiblanca, which will be giving out bottles of extra virgin during the day. Last (but not least), there’ll be a score of restaurants in the city that will be offering bowls of gazpacho at a practically symbolic price.




Gazpacho Day is organised by the association “Málaga Sana” (healthy Málaga), which aims to promote healthy eating, based on a Mediterranean diet and homemade food. It also forms a part of the initiative “Food Revolution”, headed by British TV chef Jamie Oliver, whose objective is to fight obesity and the illnesses associated with being overweight.

1. Michael Bublé: Haven’t met you yet

And I promise you kid that I’ll give
So much more than I get
I
just haven’t met you yet
2. Bryan Adams: Have you ever really loved a woman?
When you love a woman
then tell her that she’s really wanted
When you love a woman then tell her that she’s the one
’cause she needs somebody to tell her that it’s gonna last forever
So tell me
have you ever really - really really ever loved a woman?
3. Rod Stewart: Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know Have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down on a sunny day

4. Charlene: I’ve never been to me. (GPA! GPA!)
I can see so much of me
Still living in your eyes
Won’t you share a part of a weary heart
That
has lived a million lives I’ve been to Nice and the isle of Greece
When I sipped champagne on a yatch
I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed them what I’ve got
I’ve been undressed by kings
and I’ve seen some things that a woman ain’t supposed to seeI’ve been to paradise but I’ve never been to me
5. Madonna: Take a bow
I’ve always been in love with you
I guess
you’ve always known it’s true
You took my love for granted why
The show is over say good bye

6. Barry Manilow: I write the songs (GPA!)
I’ve been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs

7. U2: Still haven’t found what I’m looking for
I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
Only to be with you
But I sill haven’t found what I’m looking for

8. Carpenters: A song for you (GPA!)
I’ve been so many places in my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs
I’ve made some bad rhyme
I’ve acted out my love in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we’re alone now and I’m singing this song for you

9. James Taylor: Fire and rain
I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I’ve seen lonely times when I thought I could not find a friend
But I always thought I’d see you again

10. Paula Cole: Where have all the cowboys gone?
I will do the laundry
If you pay all the bills
Where is my John Wayne
Where is my prairie son
Where is my happy ending?
Where have all the cowboys gone?

11. Barbra Streisand: The way we were (GPA!!!)
Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or
has time rewritten every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me would we
Could we

12. Elton John: Your song
So excuse me forgetting
But these things I do
You see
I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes
I’ve ever seen
And you can tell everybody this is your song

13. SOS Band: The finest
My friends say I’m lucky
To have someone as good as you
My love’s understanding
Understanding how to hold on to you
After all that
we’ve been through

Time won’t change the way I feel about you

Out of all the loves before
You’re the finest
I’ve ever known
14. ABBA: The winner takes it all (GPA!)
I don’t wanna talk
About things
we’ve gone through
Though it’s hurting me
Now it’s history
I’ve played all my cards
And that’s
what you’ve done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

15. Rod Stewart: Have I told you lately that I love you?
Have I told you lately that I love you? Have I told you there’s no one else above you?
You feel my heart with gladness
Take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles that’s what you do

16. Eva Cassidy: You’ve changed
You’ve changed
That sparkle in your eyes is gone
Your smile is just a careless yawn
It’s all over know
You’ve changed

 

EUROPEAN OPERA DAYS - 11th AND 12th MAY


A coloured 7th edition which gathers 107 opera houses and companies across 24 European countries during two days (Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May 2013).

 
European Opera Days Manifesto

Each year on the weekend closest to 9 May (Europe Day), opera houses in Europe and beyond open their doors to new and existing audiences to celebrate the art of opera and the talent of those who make it.

The European Opera Days celebrate opera as an art form.  Their aim is to help bring opera into the mainstream of cultural practice and to enhance its appreciation in today’s society. 

Opera is the European art form par excellence, because it overcomes national and linguistic barriers through the universal language of music. Its core values and themes are central to European culture, which is part of our common identity. For this reason, the European Opera Days are celebrated on the weekend closest to 9 May, Europe Day.

Opera today is alive and kicking.  It explores unconventional spaces and forms, uses state-of-the-art technology and draws inspiration from the world in which we live today. It plays a major role in contemporary artistic and cultural life and contributes to the development of a creative society.

Opera reaches out to everyone.  Europe needs a creative society in order to develop - just as opera needs the involvement of its audiences if it is itself to develop and remain an innovative art form, central to our lives.  Access to opera should therefore be promoted for all European citizens.
