Le Grand Macabre
Le Grand Macabre, a libretto by the Hungarian composer György Ligeti, will be premiered in Spain this November.
The opera, which has received popular critical acclaim worlwide, is based upon La Ballade du Grand Macabre (1934) by Michel de Ghelderode. In what Ligeti himself calls a "comic apocalypse", the opera combines ironic and grotesque perspectives about the end of the world. The music is a collage of styles from classical to jazz in this unique representation of 'absurd' theatre.
Le Grand Macabre will be performed at the Gran Teatre de Liceu on 19th, 22nd, 25th, 28th November and 1st December. Tickets prices range from €10-€194 and can be purchased here.
