Melodies of Spain!

Music, art and food in Madrid and Barcelona, optional extension to Mallorca
May 14-24, 2017 | Optional Extension: May 24-28

Beauty and fashion, flamenco and zarzuela, Picasso and Goya. Revel in the glories of Spain with Classical KUSC on a tour to the stately capital of Madrid and exciting Barcelona, with an optional extension to the gorgeous Mediterranean island of Mallorca. Musical highlights abound including a performance of two one-act zarzuelas (Spanish operetta); concerts by two outstanding visiting orchestras, the Dresden Staatskapelle featuring star soprano Renée Fleming, and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic in an all-Russian program; Donizetti’s sparkling comedy The Daughter of the Regiment at Barcelona’s Teatro del Liceu, and an exciting evening of fiery flamenco!

We visit some of Spain’s incomparable museums: the Prado, Reina Sofia, and those dedicated to the great Spanish artists, Picasso and Mirò. Excursions take us to the ancient towns of Toledo and Segovia, Philip II’s imposing palace, El Escorial, as well as the home of the great cellist Pablo Casals for a private concert. On Mallorca, pianist Carlos Bonnin plays Chopin in the very cell in which he lived, and much more. Great music, great food and great art. Olé!
