Barcelona Obertura Classic & Lyric: Spring FestivalMain events 2017, Classical music and Opera
05/11/2017 - 05/25/2017

Among Barcelona's many musical assets are three classical music venues: the modernista Palau de la Música Catalana, the historic Liceu opera house and the modern L'Auditori. Barcelona Obertura Classic and Lyric is a venture created in 2015 to promote the array of events that this trio put on. As part of its 2017 programme, Barcelona Obertura hosts this seasonal festival that features eight different concerts with prestigious international musicians, orchestras and conductors. The inauguration sees Russian pianist Arcadi Volodos give a recital of works by Schumann, Brahms and Schubert at the Palau de la Música, while the Liceu has stagings of Wagner's "The Flying Dutchman" (18) and Gaetano Donizetti's "La Fille du Régiment" (21). At L'Auditori Kazushi Ono leads the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra and Orfeó Català choir for a rendition of Verdi's "Requiem" (19), and the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra performs at the Palau de la Música under conductor Yuri Temirkanov and with violinist Leticia Moreno (23).
