Barcelona Obertura Spring Festival, presented on Monday, February 5th, is the first joint festival of classical music developed by the three principal institutions of the city: the Gran Teatre del Liceu, the Palau de la Música Catalana, and L'Auditori. The festival will take place from the 4th to the 17th of March, with the collaboration of Ibercamera, promoted by Barcelona Global and supported by the Ajuntament de Barcelona.
The Barcelona Obertura Spring Festival aims to raise awareness of the extraordinary musical offer and programmings that the institutions promote on the level of other large European capitals to position the classical music of Barcelona in the world map and transform the city into a destination of cultural tourism and music.
It is a project designed for the city, offering a new experience, which will count with great names of the international scene like Valery Gergiev, Kent Nagano, Diana Damaru, Danill Trifonov and Matthias Goerne; and the premiere of new productions like the Vespers of Joan Pau Pujol interpreted by Jordi Savall and the Jove Capella Reial de Catalunya. The festival will also provide with free access to approximately 40 performances in emblematic spaces of Barcelona.
