Exposición Ópera ciudades Madrid

 

Will you join us on a journey starring music? This new exhibition, in Madrid until 11 August, helps us learn more about opera and discover behind this scenic art genre’s most revered works.

The exhibition

The goal of the exhibition is none other than to confirm that ever since the 18th century, opera has been one of the pillars of European culture. At the exhibition we will have to chance to admire 200 different pieces brought together from as many as 25 international museums and archives. This is a unique experience that invites people to learn about the genre’s most important characteristics.

But there’s much more, as we can also wander through opera’s most famous cities. Venice, London, Milan, Paris, Barcelona and Leningrad are shown just as they were 400 years ago to make it easier to appreciate their evolution. All this is topped off with a selection of opera’s best arias and a delicate mise-en-scène that turns this exhibition into an essential cultural event for opera enthusiasts.

We can visit it at CaixaForum until 11 August. The building is on Paseo del Prado, one of the capital’s most popular tourist areas. Critics have declared it a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition that leaves a pleasant aftertaste. For only five euros we can live an unforgettable moment, and the entrance is free for CaixaBank customers and under-16’s.

It’s open from 10:00 to 20:00 every day. To get there, we recommend using Madrid’s public transport: if you take the metro, get off at the Arte station on the L1 line (formerly known as Atocha station). You can also enjoy a leisurely 20-minute walk from our hotel. This option will take you through some of the prettiest streets in the centre, such as those in the Barrio de las Letras district.
