The tour begins in the Vestibule. Renaissance in style and extraordinarily elegant, this is the meeting place for the Liceu’s almost 15,000 season ticket holders.
The tour continues with the Auditorium, an exact replica of the impressive original horseshoe-shaped concert hall that was designed by the architect Miquel Garriga i Roca in 1847. With 2,300 seats, it is the venue for the permanent season which offers opera, concerts, recitals and dance.
The next stop in the tour is the Saló dels Miralls (Hall of Mirrors), which was for many years the meeting place of the Catalan bourgeoisie. It is now open to members of the public of any class or condition.
The tour ends with the Círculo del Liceo, an English-style private club which, founded in 1847, shares the Liceu building. It houses one of Catalonia’s best modern style collections. Displayed in its profusely decorated rooms is a unique set of works by such artists as Ramon Casas, Modest Urgell, Santiago Rusiñol, Francesc Miralles, Alexandre de Riquer, and others.
