Gran Teatre del Liceu: Aida

There are currently no dates available for this event.

Seize this opportunity at the beautiful Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona to experience the breathtaking opear performance of Verdi's Aida.
Aida is a four-acts opera composed by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Antonio Ghislanzoni during the 19th century. The work depicts the story of Aida, an Ethiopian princess who has been captured and enslaved by Egyptians. To complete the story, an Egyptian commander struggles to choose between his loyalty to the King and his love for her.
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.
