Barcelona Obertura Classic & Lyric: Spring Festival Main Events 2019, Classical music and Opera
03/04/2019 - 03/17/2019

Barcelona Obertura Classic and Lyric is a new venture that brings together the city's key classical music venues: the Gran Teatre del Liceu, L'Auditori and the Palau de la Música Catalana. Already well-known to many for their top-class performances, this latest association aims to extend their global reach and reputation even further, and demonstrate Barcelona's wealth of classical music programming.

As part of its 2019 programme, Barcelona Obertura hosts this seasonal festival that features sixteen different concerts with prestigious international musicians, orchestras and conductors. The inauguration sees the baritone Matthias Goerne and the pianist Leif-Ove Andsnes giving a recital of works by Schubert at the Palau de la Música, while the Liceu has stagings of Ambroise Thomas' "Hamlet" and Händel's "Rodelinda". At L'Auditori Kazushi Ono leads once again the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra and Orfeó Català choir for a rendition of Beethoven's "Symphony n.9 Choral".
