Would you like to find out what the Liceu hides backstage?

You will discover the private areas of the Liceu in the company of a specialist guide.

The stage, the largest area of the complex, is the nucleus around which the whole building is organized. It is equipped for performances of opera, dance, recitals and symphonic concerts. The orchestra pit is the space in which the Liceu Symphony Orchestra performs. The orchestra and the choir are the Liceu’s two permanently employed groups of artists.

Beneath the stage and with a depth of 16 meters, the trap room provides space for storage and for mounting sets. At this level one you can see the mechanized mobile platforms for shifting large-scale sets, thus making it possible to program several shows simultaneously.

The tour also includes the dressing rooms, rehearsal rooms and other spaces. This is the true heart of the Liceu and the best way to come closer to the fascinating world of opera.
