Not just for grown ups, the theatre becomes accessible to the whole family as the Gran Teatre del Liceu continues its programme of child-friendly performances. As part of El Petit Liceu—a series of shows bringing the beauty of the opera and the stage to all ages—November sees two popular tales brought to life for the little ones. An adaptation of Rossini’s celebrated The Barber of Seville, entitled Superbarber de Sevilla, tells the classic story of barber Figaro’s intervention in the love triangle between Rosina, Count Almaviva and Doctor Bartolo. Adapted for younger audiences by physical theatre company El Tricicle, light-hearted humour features alongside comical characterisation. Second up, ‘Casa Flotant’ returns for another season, offering a visual delight themed around the story of Noah’s Ark. Taking place further afield, at the Teatre Auditori de Sant-Cugat, live piano music and moving images come together to produce an enchanting and unique display, whilst animal puppets and creative stage design are sure to delight both young and old. The weekends see performances for families, whilst during the week showings are available for school groups.
These performances are taking place on various dates and at various times throughout November. For the full programme, please see here.
