Premium Visit to the Backstage Liceu Opera Barcelona


Discover the backstage and the private areas of Liceu Opera Barcelona in the company of a specialist guide. It is the largest horseshoeshaped opera theatre in Europe and the second largest in the world, running over 10 different productions per season with the most prestigious singers and the latest internationally applauded productions.

The stage is the largest unit in the whole of the Theatre and the nucleus about which the whole organization turns. It is the heart of a great fly tower, rising to 38 metres above stage level and going down 20 metres below it. The stage is equipped so that two or three different productions can be programmed at the same time, using the boxes or annexed areas, which can hold different stage settings already assembled, and the machinery to move them. It is 19 m wide and 17 m in depth. The stage area is arranged on two levels: the upper level, with the stage itself and the upper annexed areas or boxes, and the lower level, located at 24 metres below stage level. The three upper boxes,  are used to unload, assemble and store the productions. This pattern is repeated at the lower level (-16 m). Below the level of the lower boxes (20 metres below stage level) is the machinery which moves the two large mobile platforms that form the stage, and also the two wagons for scenery, which move horizontally and vertically. The itinerary also includes a visit of: the rehearsal rooms, the catwalks - the lateral bridges for technical services, the dressing and the make-up rooms.
