The Petita Companyia Lírica de Barcelona presents ‘pocket’ works, looking for the essence of the melodies and voices.
The word opera does not have to be associated with great sets and dozens of musicians and performers on the set. This is what La Petita Companyia Lírica de Barcelona thinks, which dares to stage such well-known titles as La Traviata or Carmen but moving them away from pharaonic productions, going to the essence of the stories, the music and the voices. What they call Pocket Opera. It is also, they explain, a way to shorten the distance between performers and audience, the latest often very far from the stage if they are going to see a performance in one of the large opera theatres. In addition, the proposal also helps the unusual spectators of the opera not to miss any detail, as an external narrator, or one of the protagonists themselves, details the plot.
Every first and third Saturday of the month, the members of La Petita Companyia Lírica are at the Palau de la Balmesiana to perform, alternatively, La Traviata, by Verdi, and Carmen, by Bizet. Núria Vilà (soprano), Ximena Agurto (soprano), Maria Casado (soprano), Numil Guerra (soprano), Anaïs Masllorens (mezzo-soprano), Facundo Muñoz (tenor), Ignacio Guzmán (tenor), Lucas Groppo (baritone) and Jorge Tello (baritone) are the singers and performers who put themselves in the shoes of the different characters, performances that always feature the live music of a pianist.
