Dudamel Conducts Gustav Mahler's 9th Symphony 

Though the pandemic has caused the project to twin the Opéra National de Paris with the Gran Teatre del Liceu to be postponed, Gustavo Dudamel will fire the starting shot for the new season when he descends on us like a hurricane of energy and vitality to unveil the mysteries of Gustav Mahler's Ninth and last symphony. Premiered after the composer's death, it reflects the essences of the world and combines startling subtlety with the most expansive eloquence. This is an ideal opportunity to succumb to the charms of this great Mahlerian conductor, for when it comes to creating addiction to composers and repertories, there's no one like Dudamel.

The proposed exchange between the two orchestras and their conductors attests to the warm relationship between the opera houses themselves. For the Liceu, its orchestra and Josep Pons, this event will be a highlight of our 175th anniversary. 

To round off the project, the same concert will be staged at the Palais Garnier at the end of the season.
