Trip to Barcelona from Tuesday March 13th to Friday March 16th 2018, 3 nights,
organised by our partner Euridice Opéra
The Catalan capital is one of the most lively city in Europe. Barcelona is not only a cultural destination but also a capital of classical music with legendary venues such as Gran Teatre del Liceu. Montserrat Caballé, Plácido Domingo and José Carreras performed in the Liceu. They are among the great names that made Barcelona, as well as other great artists such as Picasso, Miró, Dalí and Gaudí, the famous architect of the Sagrada Familia.
This exceptional weekend revives the legendary past of the Gran Teatre del Liceu by offering two remarkable performance: Ariodante, Haendel's masterpiece conducted by William Christie and his Arts Florissants with Kate Lindsey and Chen Reiss. Jonas Kaufmann in the title role of Andrea Chenier is just unmissable. The great tenor always raises an indescribable enthusiasm thanks to his immense talent. The superbe Sondra Rodvanovsky and Carlos Alvarez who surround him are at the same exceptional level.
