Gran Teatre del Liceu

The Gran Teatro del Liceu is one of the most beautiful and prestigious opera houses in Europe. Located in the heart of Barcelona, it is a must for lovers of music and opera. To be able to attend a performance in this magnificent setting is a great moment in the life of a music lover. A programme worthy of the place.




The Grand Théâtre du Liceu is located in the historic district of El Raval, on the famous Rambla de Barcelona and the no less famous Boqueria market.

It is easily accessible by public transport: metro (L3 - Liceu stop) and by bus V13 - 59 as indicated at the bottom of the page.


The Grand Théâtre du Liceu is a true architectural masterpiece. 

Founded in 1847, it is one of the oldest opera houses in Europe. It is renowned for its large auditorium, impressive stage and magnificent decoration. The audience is immersed in a unique atmosphere, where glamour and elegance are omnipresent. 



Liceu de Barcelona


The Liceu - as it is simply called - is mainly dedicated to the performance of operas, but it also hosts concerts of classical music, ballet and contemporary dance. The Liceu's programme is very varied and includes classical works from the repertoire, as well as contemporary creations and original productions. Among the most frequently performed operas at the Liceu are Verdi's "La Traviata", Bizet's "Carmen", Mozart's "Don Giovanni" and Puccini's "Tosca". The theatre also hosts internationally renowned artists, orchestras and dance companies for exceptional concerts and performances.


The Grand Théâtre du Liceu has a long and rich history. 

It was inaugurated in 1847 and has undergone many changes and renovations over the years.

Built on the remains of a convent, the great Liceu theatre has had a tragic fate apart from its opera stage: it burned down in 1861, rose from the ashes in 1862, fell victim to an anarchist attack in 1893 and burned again in 1994. It was inaugurated for a third time in 1999 and has since retained its original character. The Liceu has a capacity of 2292 spectators.


Anecdotes: Did you know that the Gran Teatro del Liceu was the first opera house in Europe to project subtitles onto a screen? This was introduced in 1984 to help foreign audiences understand the words of the singers.

It is important to know that performances at the Gran Teatro del Liceu in Barcelona are usually given in Spanish or Catalan, the two official languages of the region.

In addition, the Liceu has been the venue for several world premieres, including Georges Bizet's opera "Carmen" in 1875.


Visiting tips: Guided tours are organised to discover the backstage and the history of this emblematic place of the city. Visitors have the opportunity to discover the main rooms, the artists' areas, the stage and the costume and set workshops. Tours are available in several languages and last approximately one hour. Tickets for the tours can be purchased directly from the theatre's website or on-site at the box office. We advise you to book in advance as places are limited.

Hello Susan, The green tourist bus line is no longer in service and will not be next April. However, the red line now passes through the north of the city, where the green line used to run. Enjoy your visit!

Will the green line be running on April 1? If not, is there a price reduction due to this reduced service?
