The Park of Light
SEPTEMBER 2225 Ciutadella Park
At sunset, the park undergoes a radical change of scenery in order to host a series of shows in which light plays a key role. Amongst the most excit- ing of these events this year is a version of the ballet Swan Lake, which takes place in a waterfall, transformed by projections, and the central lake in the park. Don’t miss the dancers – many are from Saint Peters- burg, our guest city.
The Great Circus at Montjuïc
SEPTEMBER 2426 Montjuïc Castle
Once upon a time, this was a strategic point from which soldiers even bombed the city itself. Today, however, the castle cannon re only laugh- ter and good cheer, and this is the site of the nest circus acts on the Mercè programme, including several artistes from Saint Petersburg, this year’s guest city, whilst others, testifying to the good health of Catalan circus, are local performers.
