Barcelona’s opera house, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, was founded in 1847 and is situated on La Rambla. When it opened the Liceu was the largest opera house in Europe with 3,500 seats. The first complete opera performed at the theatre was Donizetti’s Anna Bolena.
The main vestibule was saved from the 1994 fire. The marble central staircase leads to the first floor and the Hall of Mirrors.
The Hall of Mirrors was rescued from the fire and painstakingly restored.
The Liceu’s stage is the largest area in the theatre.
