Expressionism at Palau de la Música to celebrate Halloween

Barcelona’s Palau de la Música is set to celebrate Halloween with two nights of visits to the concert hall and screening of the film ‘Metropolis’.

When we think of the All Saints' Eve, otherwise known as Halloween, the Palau de la Música concert hall is an unlikely scenario. That’s because the Palau is basically a place of light and beauty, a Catalan modernist building with magnificent stained glass windows that hosts some of the best music in the history of humanity. However, it also has its dark side. An in-depth visit to the Palau, will reveal all kinds of nooks and crannies and disturbing decorations: gargoyles, figures that symbolize the tortured interior of human beings, representations of temptations and infernal images that we identify with paganism. So, on 30th and 31st of October, the Palau de la Música is preparing a very special visit, which can be done in two ways: choosing the two hour route for the most unusual spaces in the building - a guide for a little known, and sometimes creepy concert hall, which ends at midnight, or choosing the option to spend the night inside.

Spending the night at the concert hall is a unique experience that is scheduled to end in a very special way on the afternoon of 1 November with a concert by organist Juan de la Rubia, who will improvise to images from a film that is considered to be a masterpiece of German expressionism: Fritz Lang’s 1927 production Metropolis.
