Graduated in Advertising, PR and Journalism, he began his professional career as an Account Creative in the agency "Publicis". Between 1994 and 1999 he studied Lyrical Singing with the Canarian tenor Suso Mariategui. During the 1999/2000 season, he moved to Chicago where he continued his professional career in the Communications Department of the Lyric Opera of Chicago. In 2001 he joined the family business as Marketing Director and, during that time, he collaborated with the magazine Ópera Actual. Emiliano has directed numerous advertising campaigns with the best photographers of the moment, such as Eugenio Recuenco, Pepe Botella, Richard Ramos, Sergi Pons, Scott Schuman and Mario Testino. Expert in branding, he is the creator of the Aristocrazy brand with his brother Juan. In addition, in 2017 he organizes his first photographic exhibition: #texturesofnewyork, a ten-year project in which he presents his particular vision of the most visited cities throughout his life. His photographs of New York, Havana, Chicago and Berlin have toured Madrid, Bilbao and Barcelona. In 2018 he was invited by Art Madrid to show his work.
His beginnings in stage production took place in 2009, when he produced Tango y Lágrimas, a musical fusion show as a tribute to Gardel conceived by tenor José Manuel Zapata and starring Marta Sánchez, Jose Mercè and Zapata himself. The Gran Teatro del Liceo in Barcelona, where it premiered with great success, the Teatro Real and the Teatro de la Zarzuela were the venues chosen for this project.
In 2018 he created the company Opera Garage, a new way of showing opera with a surprising, alternative and industrial format that aims to break barriers and stereotypes to bring the genre to new audiences. Emiliano is responsible for the scenography and stage direction. Since 2018 he has directed projects such as: La Bohème, Lucia di Lammermoor. Rigoletto or Tosca, among others.
In 2020, Emiliano created a creative space, Garaje Lola, in the neighborhood of Tetuán (an old factory transformed into a cultural container). Currently Garaje Lola has an annual program of contemporary art, gastronomy and live shows, proposals that he himself invents, writes, produces and directs. This space has become a cultural reference in Madrid's alternative circuit. It is a container for author's projects that give meaning to Emiliano's creative work and where he has been able to collaborate with artists such as Adriana García Abril, Ainhoa Arteta, Anabel Maurin, Andeka Gorrochategui, Antonio Carmona, Aquiles Machado, Borja Mariño, Carmen Solís, Celso Albelo, Cristina Faus, David Cervera, Diana Navarro, Enrique Viana, Eugenio Recuenco, Gerardo Bullón, Geronimo Rouch, Gregory Kunde, Irina Avramenko, Javier Carmena, Javier Galán, Jorge Blas, Jose Mercé, Jose Miguel Martín Díaz, Juan Francisco Parra, Maite Alberola, Mabel del Pozo, Manuel Brugueras, Manuel Mas, Marina Carmona, Mariola Cantarero, Marta Poveda, Marta Sánchez, Miquel Estelrich, Miquel Ortega, Nancy Fabiola Herrera, Nicola Beller Carbone, Pancho Corujo, Pasión Vega, Ramón Vargas, Raquel Lojendio, Rubén Amoretti, Rubén Sanchez Vieco, Ruth Iniesta, Ruth Terán, Sandra Ferrández, Shalva Mukeria, Silvia Vázquez, Stefano Palatchi and Vasko Vassilev.
In Garaje Lola he has carried out projects such as La Traviata (reuniting the same cast that, 25 years ago, was at the Met Opera in NY), La semilla del diablo (a staged musical drama by Emiliano Suárez created for Ruben Amoretti around the figure of Mephisto and its different manifestations in the operas of Berlioz, Boito, Gounod and Offenbach), Carmen contra Carmen, Travesti, Maléfica and Divas All Star, among others.
Among his upcoming projects are the production of the opera Don Pasquale and the project Aria flamenca, a flamenco tribute to Maria Callas in which a female flamenco voice performs twelve famous arias by Bizet, Puccini or Verdi.
