Composers with links to Barcelona will write from the scripts-librettos of important playwrights

Òh!pera is a project promoted by the Gran Teatre del Liceu in which three small-format operas are designed to be performed on a single evening. A series of young creative teams, chosen in conjunction with four Barcelona design schools, will have worked for over a year to design these high-energy operas lasting around 30 minutes.  

Taking a journey through the heart of the theatre, audiences will come into contact with the stories of a series of voices trapped in golden seams of their traumas, unconfessable secrets or impossible dreams. Expectations that will be shared with an audience that will follow this route with the intensity of proximity.  

Composers with links to Barcelona will write from the scripts-librettos of important playwrights; young stage directors who will work with theatre, design and applied art schools to create their productions; Spanish singers; small chamber ensembles from the Liceu Conservatory... A first opportunity at the Liceu and a real challenge for creators of the future.  

The Liceu embarks on a collaboration with the Barcelona City Council Department of Tourism and Creative Industries, Design Hub Barcelona and the city's design schools to encourage learning by doing. Àlex Ollé will mentor the project.
