Event Details

The Barcelona soprano Victoria de los Ángeles would have turned 100 years old in 2023. A centenary that serves as a reminder of the enormous mark she left on the world of opera.

With a very early vocation and studies at the Conservatori Superior del Liceu, she won the Geneva Competition, and her international career soared very quickly in opera houses such as Paris Opera, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Royal Opera House in London, the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, the Bayreuth Festival…

She made her debut at the Liceu in 1945 as the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro, followed by great successes.

This gala, which includes some of the most renowned and outstanding figures from the operatic scene, revisits the core repertoire of the undisputed soprano with a stage design by Vincent Huguet, who will present, on stage, costumes worn by Victòria herself.

This gala curated by Marc Busquets, artistic director of LIFE Victoria Barcelona, is the perfect occasion to pay tribute to one of Barcelona’s most universal citizens: “Above you, only the flowers”.
