The Gran Teatre del Liceu sings the "Nessun Dorma" to open the way to hope


"Vincerò, vincerò" (I will win, I will win) are the last words that Calaf sings in the famous aria "Nessun Dorma" of the opera Turandot by Puccini. A hymn full of hope for these moments, which was also for the Liceu in 1999, when it reopened its doors after the fateful fire. This song of illusion now wants to encourage society to start together the path of lack of confidence and a return to normality under the motto #HoraDeVèncer.

The creative director Igor Cortadellas has created a spectacular and sensitive multi-screen video that includes the participation of the Symphony Orchestra and the Choir of the Gran Teatro del Liceu, the choir director Conxita Garcia, the tenor from the Canary Islands Jorge de León and the musical direction of the maestro Josep Pons.
For the creation of this work, many hours of videoconference with the 142 participating artists were necessary. The result: a beautiful and communal experiment that also becomes a tribute to the bright Barcelona.
This hopeful message also wants to support all those who have suffered closely from the consequences of the coronavirus.
