Terry Gilliam conquers the Gran Teatre del Liceu

The popular member of Monty Python,  film actor and director, stages "Benvenuto Cellini", a duel of love in the papal court that can be seen from 8 to 19 November

Nobody like the ingenious member of Monty Python comedy troupe (who just this year celebrates the 40th anniversary of the release of Monty Python and the Holy Grail) to become the stage director of one of the most exuberant operas from the nineteenth century.

Benvenuto Cellini is a rarity in the standard repertoire of the big theaters, so nobody like Terry Gilliam to become the director scene of an excessive piece, which was released originally in 1838, but first came to the Liceu in 1977. This is the second time that this unusual opera by Berlioz reaches the most dazzling stage of Barcelona.

The director of such memorable films as Brazil or Twelve monkeys holds the scenic baton to expant his usual colorful and surreal view to the tale of Benvenuto Cellini, commissioned to make a sculpture for Pope Clement VII. In love with the beautiful Teresa, Cellini will endeavor to get away with her. Soon rises the conflict with Fieramosca, Teresa fiance and also sculptor, who tries to get the girl and the papal request.

Benvenuto Cellini is an opera in two acts, including acrobats, fast paced action, romantic entanglements and surprising contrasts.
