* Private and exclusive events for members of the Círculo del Liceo

The Music Commission of the Círculo del Liceo hosted a new session of the Opera and Screen cycle, with the screening of the opera Billy Budd by Benjamin Britten, in a production of the Teatro Real recorded in 2017, in co-production with the Opera National de Paris, the Finnish National Opera and the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. The event featured a presentation by the journalist Rosa Massagué.

Billy Budd is, on its own merits, one of Benjamin Britten's great operas. The stage production directed by Deborah Warner makes the story of the young sailor even more memorable, as evidenced by the various awards received, including the award for Best New Production at the 2017 International Opera Awards and the Diapason D'or awarded to the DVD in the opera category by Diapason magazine.
