This magnum opus by Giuseppe Verdi comes to the Liceu Opera house with a hyperrealistic staging. This is the staging prepared by Josep Mestres Cabanes in 1945, a period of great splendor in Catalan stage design. A luxurious setting for the opera in which Verdi showcased his enormous talent. This intense drama narrates the love triangle between Aida, Amneris and Radamès with the backdrop of ancient Egypt, and is replete with magnificent arias.
In 1853, the La Fenice theater in Venice commissioned Verdi to compose an opera. This was the birth of La Traviata, one of the most famous operas of all time. Based on the novel Camille by Alejandro Dumas, this work is now being staged at the Palau de la Música Catalana with a symphonic orchestra, soloists, choirs, costumes and over eighty artists taking the stage.
With la Bohème, Giacomo Puccini composed an operatic depiction of bohemian life in the Paris of 1830. Based on the intertwining stories of young artists from the Latin Quarter of Paris and their love affairs, this opera in four acts premiered in 1896 in Turin and was highly successful. It has now come to the Palau de la Música in a dramatized two-hour version with symphonic orchestra, soloists and choir.
Joan Magrané has composed a new opera with a libretto by Marc Rosich, based on the medieval novel by Joanot Martorell 'Tirant lo Blanc'.With seduction as its central theme, the work includes three singers and a pared down orchestra that also appears on stage. Together they offer us a new modern and theatrical notion of the opera, one filled with expressiveness but that does not abandon its medieval heart.
Mozart composed this work while immersed in the creation of The Magic Flute. It was a commission to celebrate the coronation of Leopold II as king of Bohemia. The great composer set "La clemenza di Tito" in the Rome of the 1st century A.D, availing himself of amorous passion and hate to reflect the relationship between Vitellia and Sesto with the emperor Tito at the center of the plot. Mozart composed the opera within the most serious canons and conventions of the genre yet without failing to endow it with new touches and, effectively, recreate it. Now it comes to the Liceu under the direction of the great stage director David McVicar.
