The Gran Teatro del Liceo in Barcelona, dating from 1847, is located on the Ramblas, and regarded as an institution in the city for its cultural and social importance. It is one of the most important opera theaters in Europe, which also hosts ballet and classical music. Since its beginning it was a place of meetings of the Catalan bourgeoisie and later it became more popular with small musical productions.
Its interior is superb, and has a capacity of 2,292 seats and five amphitheaters. Outstanding are the halls, like the saló dels Miralls or the Foyer hall, plus the grand staircase leading into the theater. The Liceu suffered a fire in 1994, and was largely restored and returned to open again in 1999. It is now a publicly-owned theater administered by the Foundation of the Gran Teatre del Liceu.
The Liceu can be visited without having to attend a concert. It organizes various types of visits (Theater and Circle of the Liceu, and Visit to the Backstage). Please have a look at the calendar and the schedules because they are limited in the concert season.
The visiting program is temporarily cancelled.
