Operation Triumph returns this Monday at 1 with hope of falling back in love with public as he did first edition 16 years ago. The director of new Academy, Noemí Galera, assumes that social phenomenon that caused program in 2001 will be difficult to repeat, but at least expect to recover essence of primitive OT. And it is not enough, since program returns with traditional formula, which has already exhausted, and without introducing turns in development of talent show that can surprise audience. The bet is on profiles of 16 contestants (around 10,000 people were presented). A generation of artists different from that of Rosa or David Bustamante. Very digitalized, active in networks, that sing in English without difficulty and that have musical tastes different from those of first Triunfitos. "They are very young." "Most of m are still living with ir parents and this is going to be ir first home experience," says Galera.Learn More

The contestants will live a little more than three months surrounded by more than 50 cameras in new 1,200-square-foot academy, located in Parc Audiovisual de Catalunya in Terrasa. In this enclosure thorax Hospital operated until end of nineties, a medical center dedicated to respiratory diseases. A legend of paranormal events envelops this place. Up to re fourth Millennium program was moved to record one of its episodes. Part of old building is still standing, but abandoned and is in front of academy. The terrace where participants can take air overlooks this block. A somewhat spooky scenario, especially for locals. A few meters from academy is set where Roberto Leal will debut as presenter of this show and will host every night of program to 600 spectators.
But busy daily agenda of contestants will leave m little time to think about Spiritism. The academy gars rest and rehearsal area of weekly performances on same floor. The 16 participants will sleep toger in a room, as in previous editions, a camera-free space. From living room y will chat with public every Monday after program. "This year full board is over." The boys are going to have to wash ir clos and collect dishes, says Tinet Rubia, director of Gestmusic Endemol producer of Operation Triumph next to RTVE. The Queen Hall of academy, lined with mirrors and of great luminosity, will be where singers do yoga with teacher Xuan Lan in morning or where y practice choreographies with dancer Vicky Gomez. A daily strip will summarize highlights of day and airs each day at 20.00 at 1 and 22.00 in Clan.Los Javis in presentation of ' Operation Triumph 2017 '.
The music that will rise to stage of program also evolves with interpreters. "The repertoire has to be transversal and young people today listen to reggaeton, so it will be in OT galas," says Manu Guix, musical director of Academy and veteran professor of program. The gamble of producers of this reissue is to flee from nostalgic tone. "It has to be a repertoire of 2017 and at academy we like Perreo", ironically Rubia. Those responsible for evaluating performances of each gala will be Mónica Naranjo, Joe Pérez-Orive and Manuel Martos. Each week a guest will join jury.
The bet for millennials also has its effect on teachers. The young actors, screenwriters and directors Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrosi, known as Javis (Paquette Salas, call ...) They take baton of interpretation classes. They will try to make artists "create" message of topic y interpret. "We're his first audience and I'm already a fan of one of contestants," says Calvo. The social networks have not been left out of organizers ' plan in ir eagerness to adapt to new times. Contestants will be able to use ir mobile to feed ir Instagram or Twitter channels, although y will be limited to being content generators, without receiving followers ' reaction to maintain isolation with outside.Free vote
