This documentary brings us into the heart of the ideas behind the creation of the decorations and scenography of Ligeti's opera Le Grand Macabre that took place in Barcelona at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in 2011.
The scenography of Alex Olle and Valentin Carrasco is a reflection on death and its representation and perception by individuals. This documentary explores the aesthetic thought and the work of the directors and their team. The Opera Le Grand Macabre is filmed in 2011 with spectacular performances at the Gran Teatre del Liceu.
