Hypnos: Luis Pardo shows off his skills at instant hypnosis, subliminal messages and suggestion. Some spectators have even managed to overcome phobias or quit smoking after one of his shows… The question is would you dare go under his spell? Until 25 February at the Teatre Aquitània de Barcelona.

Roméo et Julietteafter 32 years, the most famous love story of all is back at the Liceu in Barcelona. This time, though, it’s set in the context of the American Civil War. Simply sublime. From 14 February to 4 March at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona.
