Opera on the silver screen within everybody's reach.

'Les pècheurs de perles' and 'Turandot', upcoming titles on Barcelona's cinema screens.

There’s no longer any excuse. Ticket prices and journey times are no excuse for not enjoying opera at the world’s greatest opera houses with the continuation of this cycle at the city’s cinemas. The next two screening will take us, no more or less, to New York’s Metropolitan Opera House, with two works by two great composers: Bizet and Puccini.

On 16 January, we can see Bizet’s Les pècheurs de perles, an opera in three acts with a libretto by Eugène Cormon and Michel Carré which is set in an exotic location: the lost beach of Celian, which is inhabited by pearl fishermen. It’s a opera which, despite meeting with a cool reception upon its premiere, has now become a work that many of the world’s major opera houses are starting to rediscover.

The second opera that is arriving on our screens from New York is the only one that its composer, Giacomo Puccini, set in China. Turandot was his last opera and he never actually finished it. It’s usually performed with the ending written by Franco Alfano, based on sketches and indications left by Puccini.

The signal that reaches the cinemas comes directly from the United States is live and high definition.
