About the Event
Experience opera like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Mozart at Barcelona's remarkable Gran Teatre del Liceu.
About the Composer
Perhaps the most important composer of all time, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was an Austrian composer of the late 18th century. Born in 1756 in Salzburg, he showed prodigious musical talent from childhood. Beginning at five years of age, he composed more than 600 works, including concertos, symphonies, religious works and operas before his premature death at the age of 35. Hi influence over successive generations cannot be overestated - Ludwig van Beethoven wrote of Mozart 'posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years”. Despite the immense success of his compositions, and the acclaim he received across Europe, Mozart achieved little financial security and rwas buried in an unmarked grave in Vienna's St Marx Cemetery.
About the Venue
The Gran Teatre del Liceu is the most prestigious opera house in Barcelona, and one of the biggest - and most important - in Europe. Founded in 1847 by the Philodramatic Lyceum of Montesion, with the aim of promoting musical education, it has since had numerous incarnations. The original building could not accommodate a large audience, and subsequent episodes - fire in 1861, and anarchist riots in 1893 - necessitated a number of reconstructions. In 1994 the theatre was totally rebuilt and equipped with modern technology after another fire. The improved and enlarged theatre opened again in 1999 with Puccini’s Turandot.
