On March 23rd, the Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona presented its new 2018/19 season, which will include 10 staged operas and 3 operas performed as concerts, by 11 composers. The programme strives to offer great titles with great voices, respond to all aesthetic sensibilities and participate in the international opera community with new coproductions. Madama Butterfly is one of the Liceu's great successes that can be seen again this season, with new features and great voices like that of Lianna Haroutounian, who will stand on the stage of the Liceu for the first time to give life to the character Cio Cio San. The baritone Damián del Castillo, in the role of Sharpless, will also participate in this coproduction by the Gran Teatre del Liceu and London's Royal Opera House Covent Garden, which will be directed by Moshe Lesier and Patrice Caurier. It will be conducted by Giampaolo Bisanti.
