Originally opened on 4 April 1847, the Liceu gradually evolved into a prestigious opera house. It has seen operas by contemporary Italian Romantic drama and late 19th-century Verism. Sets have been designed by famous artists such as Bakst, Picasso, Cocteau and Miró.

A warm and charming Coppélia performed by Julio Bocca's excellent young Uruguayan company.
At a time of love and literature in fairest Barcelona, the scene was laid at the Liceu for interpretations by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Berlioz and Bernstein of Shakespeare's timeless tale.
Barcelona's L'Auditori was taken on a journey of contrasts, via Parra and Prokofiev, that unsettled as much as it delighted.
Truly sublime playing and singing from the massed forces in Barcelona's L'Auditori perfectly showcased Mahler's genius ability to evoke whole worlds.
