    Theater / Concerts: Palau de la Musica

    by SirRichard Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The facade

    This magnificient modernist building (1908) deserves a visit by itself, even if you don't like classic music concerts. There are guided tours (U can't visit on your own), so you will have to wait till the group is formed. The main hall of concerts is really amazing. No pics allowed inside.

    In 1997 it was declared a "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO.

    PALAU DE LA MUSICA CATALANA: FOR THOSE WHO LOVE MUSIC....

    by eden_teuling Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ART NOUVEAU THE SACRED NINE BARCELONA.

    For those who love ART NOUVEAu this palace of music will be a gem.

    This building is so extremely abundant, rich, excessive that it overwhelmed me........I enjoyed it so much that I didn't know where to start watching it all.

    Luckily we were quite early so we could walk around and enjoy every detail.....but taking photographs was forbidden, which was such a pity.

    The postcard you see here is part ot the stage: the walls are decorated with e.g. these
    MUSES, de sacred NINE....partly in relief, partly painted.

    Enjoy the mosaic around those figures....

    Really it was very worthy waiting for 2 hrs. to get tickets........
    One of the HIGHLIGHTS for me.

    The architect was Ll Domenech i Montaner

    Eusebi Arnau sculpted the sacred NINE and Lluis Bru is the creator of the mosaic.

    Dress Code: formal and festive......

  • Montjuic - Palau Sant Jordi: Fantastic Place to watch a concert

    by vivaBarca Updated Jul 9, 2005
    Clapton and friends

    Last year I was lucky enough to see Eric Clapton LIVE in one of his (supposed) final tours, ever. The concert was at Palau Sant Jordi, a beautiful arena in Montjuic that was built for the Olympics. The best part was this: the cheapest tickets were for the standing room on the floor! The more expensive ones had fans sitting on rows up the side! I bought the least expensive ticket, yet was about 30 feet from Clapton himself...ridiculous!

    Dress Code: Very casual, all types of people at this concert....

    cine Verdi



    I love movies, but in special foreign movies. My hectic life and myself are to blame not to attend to the cinema as much as I wish.

    My friends had origianlly plan to go and watch Lord of the Rings, fair enough, only problem was it was voice over in Spanish.... no way... if I was to sit three hours it had to be originale version.

    So at the end I disuaded them and we opted for a Japanese comedy.... good choice... I can't remember the name of the Director, but will find out.

    What I liked about this cinema was that it was very local.... hidden in the back roads, with character.

    Theater / Concerts: Teatre del Liceu

    by SirRichard Updated Dec 1, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the Ramblas

    This Opera Theatre was at its foundation (1847) the biggest in Europe. In 1994 a fire destroyed it and was rebuilt in 1999. You can find programmes and tickets sales at the web page below.

    Even if you don't like the Opera, the building deserves a visit for its impressive interior. There are guided tours in the morning (10, 11, 12, 13), showing you the Hall, the Room of Mirrors and the Foyer.

    Guided tours 5 euros.

    Gran Teatre del Liceu

    Theres lots of theatres in barcelona, but the most famous is EL LICEU, which its an amazing building in the middle of las Ramblas, tickets for events there are expensive and are almost always sold out easly. A couple of good theatre to go are the poliorama also in las ramblas, and the Borras in Urquinaona square. Most of the shows are always in catalan or spanish.

    Classical Music

    by crazyguitar Written Jan 7, 2003

    If you are a fan of the classical music there are some good choices in BCN, apart from specific festivals the most popular places are:

    ---“El Liceu”: The most prestigious one, a former symbol of the bourgeoisie. Burned and reconstructed now, it’s nice just to see the building. Famous for opera and ballet. Usually you have to book more than one year in advance...
    http://www.liceubarcelona.com/

    --- “Palau de la Musica Catalana” another superb place, modernist architechture there. Nice to see just the façade!!

    --- “L’ auditori”: http://www.auditori.com/

  • Yelmo Icarius: Movies if you don't speak Spanish (yet)

    by Yosemite_44 Updated Sep 8, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If your Spanish isn´t that great yet or if you can´t stand the Spanish dubbing, this is the place to go to watch the original version movies (indicated by ´VOSE´). On weekends, tickets are 5,50 Euro and the last showing start at 1.00 AM. There is a Burger King and a Farggi luxury ice-cream place, to have a quick snack before or after the movie.
