Rubinstein's materpiece about the demon's love obsession.
Anton Rubinstein wrote more than fifteen operas, of which only Néro was seen in the Liceu in 1898. It was the first Russian opera staged in Barcelona. The composer and pianist - Liszt's rival - performed on two occasions at the Liceu. He played in the orchestra on one of them for the ballet of his opera, Demon, based on the homonymous poem of the “cursed” Mikhail Lermontov, branded as sacrilegious and blasphemous by the Russian ecclesiastical censors.
With this co-production, the Liceu contributes to the rediscovery of one of the most genuinely Romantic operas of the Russian repertoire, along with the celebrated titles by Mussorgsky or Tchaikovsky. This is an excellent opportunity to recover a classic of Slavic opera, starring the acclaimed Russian baritone, Dmitri Hvorostovsky in the lead role and as part of one of his favourite operas.
More information is available on the official website of the opera house.
