The NovAria company celebrates its 10th anniversary of life and success with a lyrical gala to benefit the Pasqual Maragall's Foundation. During the last decade, NovAria has offered unique and innovative opera seasons at the Palau de la Música Catalana, with the orchestra integrated into the scene and lasting no longer than two and a half hours, including the break.

A 10th anniversary is more than a reason for NovAria to host a very special lyrical gala, which will feature artists who have participated in the project over the last ten years, as well as artists and external collaborators of great prestige on the international scene, who wanted to join in selflessly. All of them will be accompanied by the NovAria Philharmonic Orchestra.

The charity gala is held to the benefit of the Pasqual Maragall's Foundation to support its Alzheimer's prevention project.
