What's On

Christmas in Barcelona

If you are visiting Barcelona and going to be decorating the house for Christmas - particularly if you have a crib (Nativity scene), don't miss the Feria de Santa Lucia, in the square in front of the Cathedral.

November 19-December 14
World Press Photo Exhibition
The truly outstanding World Press Photo exhibition [website], at the CCCB, includes some of the breathtaking images taken by photojournalists around the world in the last year.

27 December 2008-4 January 2009
Barcelona's annual "Festival de la Infancia" trade fair (this year the 44th edition) is a great day out for kids - with basically anything you could wish the Three Kings (aka Santa) would bring you. For details, check the festival site.

Concerts
For what is on in the way of classical music, opera and the like, see what's on at the Palau de la Musica and the Liceu Opera House (two places well worth visiting for their architecture, even if you are not that keen on music). Tickets for these can be obtained from ServiCaixa, see below, which also has a rather frustrating to navigate calendar of events.

Classical music is also on at the Auditori, home to Barcelona's Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya's.

.

Concerts coming up in Barcelona include The (International) Noise Conspiracy (Apolo, December 14); Asian Dub Foundation (Apolo, December 20); Calexico (Apolo, January 20); The Stranglers (Razzmatazz, January 28); Kaiser Chiefs (Razzmatazz, January 29); Marillion (Palau Sant Jordi, February 1; Soulfly (Apolo, February 17); The Script, (Apolo, March 2); The Sisters of Mercy (Razzmatazz, March 12); and AC/DC (Palau Sant Jordi, March 21).

The accompanying flamenco show reveals the variety of music, singing and dancing incorporated in this passionate art form. Improvisation is a key element of flamenco, with each artist individually interpreting the rhythm and communicating the beat to the other players. Communication between the artists and audience is also an important part of the performance. One of the highlights of the night is the emotive midnight prayer, "Salve Rociera".

The accompanying dinner menu is a tasty sampling of typical Andalusian dishes, including:
Toasted bread with tomato
Assortment of cold cuts (Serrano ham, cheeses, sausages)
