Galas and encores
The Teatro Real has hosted various galas, dedicated to the great figures that have walked its stage, creating memorable moments, like Teresa Berganza singing 'Happy Birthday' to Plácido Domingo. Equally historic have been its encores, both Leo Nucci's encore in 'Rigoletto' in 2009 (the Teatro Real's first encore in recent historiy), and Javier Camarena's double encore in 2014, with 'La fille du régiment'.

El 22 de junio de 2009, Leo Nucci hacía historia en el Teatro Real al ser el primer artista en dar un bis desde la reapertura de 1997. El público de Madrid aclamó al barítono italiano hasta que éste repitió el famosísimo dúo "Sì, vendetta, tremenda vendetta" de Rigoletto.

9 dos de pecho tiene el aria Ah! mes amis, quel jour de fête! de La hija del regimiento
pero Javier Camarena cantó 18... ¡dos días seguidos! El tenor mexicano se convirtió así en el primer cantante en bisar dos veces seguidas en el Real.

El 21 de enero de 2011, Plácido Domingo cumplía 70 años, y el Teatro Real se llenaba de amigos y colegas para celebrarlo. Uno de los momentos más emotivos de la noche corrió a cargo de Teresa Berganza, que le dedicó una felicitación muy especial.
