06/03/2018 - 06/08/2018

Created with the aim of telling the world about Barcelona's buoyant, extensive classical music scene, Barcelona Obertura Classic & Lyric brings its current season to a close with five world-class concerts in some of the city's most memorable venues. Kicking off the series is conductor Kazushi Ono and the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra performing Dvorak's Requiem by at L'Auditori. That's followed by acclaimed French baritone Philippe Jaroussky taking the male title role in Gluck's 1762 opera Orfeo ed Euridice at the Palau de la Música Catalana. June 7 has two events scheduled: Puccini's Manon Lescaut at the Liceu Opera House starring Ludmyla Monastyrska and Gregory Junde; and at the outdoor Teatre Grec, there's an evening concert of Händel's Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks. Finally, the season ends with a bang, as Sir Simon Rattle conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker at the Palau de la Música.
