Barcelona is one of the most fascinating cities of the Iberian Peninsula and enchants its visitors with a vivid, multi-faceted cultural life. The Catalan city is world-renowned for its architecture and offers a million things to see from the Gothic Quarter over Gaudí’s famous works to modern architecture. Amongst the architectural gems are the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Palau de la Musica Catalana with its glass concert hall – both of them host world class artists and orchestras on a regular basis. The leading classical music institutions of Barcelona have joined forces under the name of “Barcelona Obertura – Classic and Lyric”: The Gran Teatre del Liceu, the Palau de la Musica Catalana, Ibercamera and L’Auditori. Their aim is to make the diversity and outstanding quality of Barcelona’s classical music scene known to an international audience.
