Gran Teatre del Liceu: Les Grands Ballets Canadiens De Montreal
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Barcelona's breathtaking Gran Teatre del Liceu for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of ballet.
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.
