These two emblematic Catalan musical institutions come together to perform in the European tour of Beethoven's Fidelio, which arrives at the Gran Teatre del Liceu on 26 and 27 May and then travels to Paris and London.

Conducted by Gustavo Dudamel and performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Beethoven's opera to Fidelio will be performed at some of the main auditoriums in Europe: the Gran Teatre del Liceu (26 and 27 May), the Philharmonie de Paris (31 May), and the Barbican in London (3 June). This is an innovative staging of the only opera by the German composer created for both deaf and hearing audiences, which premiered two years ago in co-production with the prominent Deaf West Theatre in Los Angeles and with the participation of the White Hands Choir of El Sistema de Venezuela. In this European tour, and with the support of the Institut Ramon Llull, the work has the participation of the Chamber Choir of the Palau de la Música Catalana and the Choir of the Gran Teatre del Liceu.

This version of Fidelio, performed entirely in international sign language, offers a new approach to this opera and allows deaf and hard of hearing viewers unprecedented access to the world of music. The performances at the Liceu, will also feature a preliminary explanation in Catalan sign language.

A highly demanding tour that recognises the excellence and quality of the Palau and Liceu's level of artistry.
