This year, the opera will leave again the interior of the Liceu Opera House in Barcelona and, on this occasion, Manon Lescaut by Giacomo Puccini will be the star performance on 16 June at 10.00 p.m.
This great Italian opera will be retransmitted via streaming on 311 giant screens, which will be situated all over Spain in different public spaces and public institutions in numerous localities.
In total, 277 Catalan municipal councils (including 5 in Barcelona), 25 more scattered all over Spain, 1 in Andorra, 2 in Portugal and 6 in France will all transmit this live performance of Italian opera.
This initiative, called Liceu a la fresca, aims to promote and foster culture among audiences everywhere by transmitting the cultural experience of opera both inside and outside the Spanish territory. In this way we wish to contribute to helping culture to reach the largest number of people possible.
