Montserrat Caballé honored at Barcelona Cathedral
Verdi’s 'Requiem' performed in remembrance of world-class Catalan soprano
Barcelona’s Cathedral has hosted the first major homage to Montserrat Caballé since the world-class Catalan soprano passed away last October.
The tribute included a performance of ‘Requiem’ by Giuseppe Verdi, played by the Orchestra and the Choir of the Liceu opera house, a notable composition in Caballe’s repertoire.
The event, organized by the family of the soprano, was attended by some 600 people, including the Catalan culture minister Laura Borràs and Spanish ministers Meritxell Batet and José Guirao.
