(ÒH!)PERA

Four small-format operas which will be performed on the same day

(Oh)pera! is a project launched by the Gran Teatre del Liceu to commission four small-format operas which will be performed on the same day. Teams of young people selected in cooperation with Barcelona design schools have worked for over a year to devise these energy-packed shows, each of which lasts approximately half an hour.

The singers will share tales about their traumas, unconfessable secrets, impossible dreams and expectations with members of the audience as the latter tour the innermost recesses of the opera house, each show taking on added forcefulness by being acted at close quarters.

Participants include composers with ties to Barcelona and their chosen librettists, young stage directors whose productions are made in collaboration with schools of drama, design and the applied arts, locally born singers, and chamber ensembles made up of musicians from the Liceu's conservatory: for the creative artists of tomorrow, this will be a first opportunity to work at the Liceu.
