EL MONSTRE AL LABERINT

  

A participatory choral opera by Jonathan Dove

This re-interpretation of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur is based on a collective creation in which hundreds of young singers from schools and colleges in Barcelona city will take part, appearing on stage with professionals from the worlds of music and the performing arts.

Opera, as an educational tool, does more than just teach us about music and drama: it shows us how to become better citizens too. And what better way to learn than by producing an opera on the stage at the Liceu!

If we share our knowledge, we'll get farther and defeat the monster in the maze.
