“Alexina B.” by Raquel García-Tomás succeeds in its absolute premiere at the Liceu. Saturday, March 18, 2023 will be remembered as a historic day at the Rambla Colosseum, not only for Raquel García-Tomás being the second woman to premiere an opera there in its 175-year history, and the first Catalan female composer, but also because her music captivated the audience, starting an unanimous 8-minute standing ovation, with the bystanders enthusiastically applauding every artist who came out on stage to greet.

The opera “Alexina B.” is fruit of a combination of creators and performers in a state of grace, each of whom has made it possible: libretto by Irène Gayraud and stage direction by Marta Pazos, performed by Lidia Vinyes-Curtis, Alicia Amo, Elena Copons, Xavier Sabata and Mar Esteve.
