The celebration will take place at Plaça de Margarida Xirgu on Saturday 17 June with music by La Salseta del Poble Sec.
You don't celebrate a 40th anniversary every day, and Barcelona's Teatre Lliure has spent a whole season marking that feat with a host of actities. But all good things come to an end and on 17 June the theatre's anniversary year will draw to a close with a special celebration that's open to everyone in Plaça de Margarida Xirgu.
The festivities, like a preview of the forthcoming Sant Joan fiesta, include music by La Salseta del Poble Sec, coca and cava. There will also be food trucks and a fireworks display will illuminate the city to wish the theatre many more years of health, work and success. The action is scheduled to being at 9pm.
The anniversary celebrations began on 10 September last year with four hours of performances and workshops designed by Joan Font, the director of the Comediants company, together with an enormous birthday cake. The event being commemorated happened four decades ago, when on 2 December, Teatre Lliure staged its first play - Camí de nit, 1854. Since then, the different stages of the theatre have been graced by dozens of works and a multitude of actors and directors.
