What to Do in Barcelona Post-Annual Meeting

For registrants spending some time in Barcelona after the Annual Meeting ends, there are plenty of options for diversion, as Uldduz Larki reports.

A Night at the Opera

Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu is a world-renowned opera house. On Friday May 26, it plays host to a production of Richard Wagner’s great work The Flying Dutchman. On Saturday May 27 there is a performance of the comic opera La Fille du Régiment by Donizetti. Both performances start at 8:00 pm. 

Tickets are still available via the theatre’s website, or you can buy them in person at the theatre box office.

Culture in Catalan

If opera’s not your thing, why not have an evening at the theatre instead? The Teatre Nacional de Catalunya is a great place to watch a production (although most are performed in Catalan), and from Thursday, May 25 to Saturday, May 27, William Shakespeare’s Richard III is being staged.  

Picture this

You’ve been to the Annual Meeting exhibit hall, now discover a different kind of exhibition while you’re in Barcelona. The Museu Nacional D’Art de Catalunya is showing the oil paintings of Catalan artist Pere Torné Esquius, in its first show dedicated to the artist. More than 300 works are on view. 

Clubbing it 

If you want to do something a little more high tempo, try to get to the opening party of the Café del Mar Club at Port Forum on Saturday, May 27. Spanish electronic music pioneer David Penn and superstar New York DJ Erick Morillo and others will be playing until the early hours of the morning.
