Great Success of Cristina Pato & Real Filharmonía de Galicia

Cristina’s concerts with the Real Filharmonía de Galicia have been a great success, with sold-out venues and several minutes long ovations. The press coverage of such a historic event was thorough, with even live broadcasts in the news. Here are some pictures from the performance at the Auditorio de Galicia, in Santiago de Compostela:
