The new year begins on a high note as opera is projected live, the Guggenheim celebrates its evolution and Barcelona offers children a magical beginning to 2015

The opera makes its way into your heart this new year thanks to London’s Royal Opera House. The esteemed leading opera company, centered in the iconic Covent Garden Theatre, will project its performances of timeless works such as Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème Live in cinemas in more than 40 countries. Scheduled for transmission are seven operas and four ballets with the opera Andrea Chénier by Umberto Giordano leading the new year on January 29th. This Opera, based on the life of French poet André Chénier (1762-1794) who was executed during the French revolution, will be simultaneously projected at the Palafox Theater in Madrid, Luchana 15.
