Entremig es va anomenar Teatre Catalunya i, finalment, Teatre Eldorado, nom agafat de l'emblemàtic edifici parisenc. Es va dedicar a la programació d'obres de teatre, sarsuela, òpera i concerts simfònics. Cal destacar-ne l'estrena de la sarsuela d'Enric Morera Las Caramellas (1902), i de les sarsueles d'Albert Cotó, a més d'importants obres de teatre de Benito Pérez Galdós, Ramón María del Valle-Inclán o Joan Maragall (Nausica, 1912). Va ser la seu de l'Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i va estrenar a Barcelona les òperes Djamileh de G. Biz

Composer and pianist

He began his studies with his uncle Narcís Fita (organ) and with P. Solana (violin). He played the piano at cafes and conducted the choir Erato. At the age of thirteen he joined the Orquesta Figueras, where he began composing ballables. In 1888 he moved to Barcelona where he was a pianist-conductor in several renowned theatres. There, he also founded Orquestra Cotó together with some lecturers at Liceu, and toured around Europe. He created a type of staged revista called Portofolios Musicales. From 1878, he became famous for composing hundreds of dance pieces (the so-called 19th-century dances and americanas), which were performed by orchestras throughout Catalonia. He continued to compose small stage music with success, as well as works for male choirs, sardanes and easy piano pieces. His composition has been compared to that of other contemporary European composers, and especially to that of Johann Strauss the Son.

At the age of thirteen he joined the Orquesta Figueras, where he began composing ballables. In 1888 he moved to Barcelona where he was a pianist-conductor in several renowned theatres. There, he also founded Orquestra Cotó together with some lecturers at Liceu, and toured around Europe. He created a type of staged revista called Portofolios Musicales. From 1878, he became famous for composing hundreds of dance pieces (the so-called 19th-century dances and americanas), which were performed by orchestras throughout Catalonia. He continued to compose small stage music with success, as well as works for male choirs, sardanes and easy piano pieces. His composition has been compared to that of other contemporary European composers, and especially to that of Johann Strauss the Son.

Singer, guitarist and composer 

One of the main initiators of the Catalan rumba. He learned to play guitar as a kid. With 12 years he and his cousin Pepita Becas formed the duo Hermanos Montenegro, with which they won an award at the Tívoli Theater. Nevertheless, his first album (recorded in 1957) went unnoticed. In the 1960s he worked at the tablao El Duende (Madrid), and developed his style with the influence of Elvis Presley as well as the rumba El Pescadilla or El Orejas. In the 1970s his songs "Una lágrima" and "Borriquito com tu" achieved an international dissemination. In 1974 he took part in the Eurovision festival. In the mid 1980s, he announced his retirement from the stage. However, in 1991 he recorded 'Caballo Blanco', as part of Chipén's first album, and in 1992 he participated in the opening ceremony of the Barcelona Olympics. In addition to making 27 records, he was producer of his own record label through which he promoted Catalan rumba musicians.
