Els Pastorets


A Christmas classic by the composer of Mar i cel

This Christmas classic, based on the traditional Catalan nativity play Els Pastorets by Folch i Torres, relates the adventures of two young shepherd boys. A narrator tells the story to the accompaniment of some delightful music.

Albert Guinovart – the composer of such successful musicals as Mar i cel, Flor de nit and Gaudí – has re- orchestrated the work for its return to the Liceu. It will be performed by the Liceu Symphony Orchestra and one of Catalonia's foremost children's choirs, the Cor Vivaldi-Petits Cantors de Catalunya.
