The Music Commission of the Círculo del Liceo hosted the conference prior to the operas Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte. The three works were the result of the collaboration between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Lorenzo Da Ponte.
Marc Minkowski and Ivan Alexandre offer us an ambitious and refreshing challenge: to present four cycles of the three operas at the Gran Teatre del Liceu. A journey in three episodes, tesserae of an extraordinary mosaic.
The conference was given by Carlos Calderón, an active lecturer at various Catalan cultural institutions. Since his arrival in Barcelona in 2003, he has been incorporated into the cultural and musical life of the city, distinguished by his investigative rigor, his entertaining lectures and the preparation of highly suggestive audiovisual presentations. He graduated in Architecture in Venezuela and simultaneously completed his full studies in Music. He completed higher studies in Logic and Philosophy of Science and has a master's degree in History of Sciences from the University of Barcelona. In 2013 he obtained a PhD in Humanities from the Pompeu Fabra University, directing his research towards the study of Music, Art and Science within the framework of a History of Culture.
