Beauty and fashion, flamenco and zarzuela, Picasso and Goya. Revel in the glories of Spain with 99.5 All Classical host Cathy Fuller on a WGBH LearningTour to the stately capital Madrid and exciting, chic Barcelona, with an extension to the gorgeous Mediterranean island of Mallorca.
The musical highlights include an opera performance at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu; the St. John Passion by Amsterdam Baroque; pianists Grigori Sokolov and Rudolf Buchbinder; a zarzuela (Spanish operetta); and an evening of flamenco. On Mallorca, we will hear a Chopin recital in the cell in which he lived.
Excursions take us to the ancient towns of Toledo, Segovia, and Girona.
