A new initiative is afoot to give the Catalan capital a musical identity.
From the press release:
Barcelona Obertura is a joint initiative of the main musical institutions of Barcelona – the Liceu Opera, the Palau de la Música Catalana and L’Auditori – to promote the world-class musical offering in the city.
The initiative aims to put Barcelona’s rich variety of music on the world map and has been created in order to attract music lovers from all around the world to come and enjoy the most exclusive range of music in the superb setting of the city. They want Barcelona, which is already internationally renowned above all for its cuisine, architecture, football and climate, to also be recognised for its classical music agenda and the uniqueness of its musical venues.
