Magic Fountain – Fountains of Montjuic – BARCELONA

 

Fonts de Montjuic

Barcelona’s biggest ornamental fountain, which was built in 1929 for the International Exhibition, offers a spectacular display of music, water acrobatics and lights which generate over 50 kinds of shades and hues. The Montjuïc Magic Fountain has become one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions and is where the “Piromusical” is held, a true balletic spectacle of water and light.

It could be said that the Montjuïc Magic Fountain remains true to its name: during the displays, the moving water jets, illuminated in shifting shades and hues and synchronised with light and music, look like a magic dance which unfolds, subsides, rises and falls, is concealed and bursts forth before our eyes. The Magic Fountain, a masterpiece designed by the engineer Carles Buigas, was one of the great successes of the 1929 International Exhibition. The fountain was painstakingly restored for the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games so that it could continue to offer a unique display to delight all age groups.

El Doctor House “abandona” la consulta para ofrecer un concierto en Barcelona

Hugh Laurie, el conocido actor protagonista de la serie House, actuará este jueves en el teatro Arteria Paral·lel de Barcelona para dejarse ver en su faceta de músico con su primer álbum editado, Let Them Talk (2011), que presenta este verano en una gira mundial.

En su rol de músico, Laurie forma parte de la banda benéfica Band From TV y este año, además, se ha lanzado en la presentación de un disco de jazz en el que el actor canta y toca el piano y la guitarra, acompañado de una banda de músicos.

Aunque desconocida para muchos, su carrera musical ya lo ha llevado a recorrer países como Estados Unidos, Argentina, Chile, Suiza, Alemania, Ucrania y Holanda, después de firmar un contrato con Warner Bros en el 2010.
