MEAM Collection at Liceu Barcelona
Exhibition in the Foyer Balcony
From January 15 to February 4
Open before and during the intermission of all Werther functions.
On the occasion of the performances of the opera Werther, this time we enter the era of Romanticism. With Goethe as a great exponent of all the references of this movement of the s.

On these parameters this exhibition is constructed; Of the magnificent contemporary painting collection that has the MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art), we have made a selection that we have grouped in two great recurring themes in Romanticism: Nature and Woman.Find out more
