On Sunday, July 10th, 2010, the Royal Ballet will bring their sleeping beauty production to the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona. The Royal Ballet, based in London's Covent Garden, will be performing this famous ballet which features the music of Tchaikovsky.

This production was first held in 1946 and, when the Royal Ballet was celebrating its 75th anniversary 60 years later, Monica Mason and Christopher Newton decided to undertake a new production of this ballet.

The Gran Teatre del Liceu could hardly be a better venue for this event; located on the Rambla promenade – one of the most famous parts of Barcelona’s old city centre – it is among the largest opera houses in Europe. Its horseshoe-shape is said to have been inspired by the Teatro alla Scala in Milan and although it dates back to 1847, the entire Theatre was rebuilt in 1994, in a style that remains faithful to the 19th-century architecture.

Of course, with its convenient location right in the heart of the city, the Gran Teatre del Liceu will be within easy reach from almost any hotel in Barcelona. But if you can find one close by, you will be perfectly placed for exploring the fascinating architecture that is unique to this city.

Lek Boonlert, Head of Marketing at, said that "Barcelona is an immensely popular destination during the summer months and events like this are sure to attract even more people to the city." Barcelona is famed for its wide range of hotels, so if you book early in advance you are sure to find a great deal.
