When summer is here the beaches are the ideal venue for enjoying culture, including opera. So, this Wednesday, 27 July, you’ll be able to treat yourselves to Georges Bizet’s opera, Carmen, which is being shown on Barceloneta beach from 10.15 pm.

Carmen, a veritable archetype of opera, is unrivalled in popularity and the admiration of both musicians and artists. It has given rise to numerous adaptations and owes it greatness to its innovative conception, well-crafted plot and brilliant melodic, harmonic and instrumental inventiveness.

To make that possible, a giant screen is being set up in the Plaça del Mar square, at Sant Sebastià beach. Visitors will be able to enjoy the opera for free, as long as you pick up an invitation from the neighbourhood associations beforehand.
