Dress rehearsal

In group and accompanied and guided by the teacher, students attend a dress rehearsal of a full opera in the Main Hall of the Liceu.

Depending on the title chosen (generally about three hours). The operas are staged in their original language, with subtitles in Catalan.

Until 1 Septembereach school may only reserve places for one group of a maximum of 20 students and for one dress rehearsal. After this date, reservations may be made freely for the offer available. 

Entrance to the dress rehearsals is from Carrer Sant Pau. To avoid bottlenecks, it is important to be at the entrance half an hour before the start of the rehearsal.

Schools that choose to reserve tickets for the dress rehearsals accept that the activity has a certain risk of cancellation as it is a work session involving technicians and performers to prepare for the public performance of the opera. Until up to 48 hours before the rehearsal, confirmation will not be made that it will be open, and, despite having chosen rehearsals that have are most possible to be open to the public, in some cases the theatre management may decide to close them for technical reasons.

Free activity. Aimed at upper secondary students and students from music and singing schools. 

Target age group
Students in the last year of secondary education and students attending a conservatoire.
