Bilbao Celestial Urban Opera

‘Bilbao 2008, Space Odyssey’ could have been the other name of this new celestial urban opera conceived by Luc Petit.


After having `Taken down the moon’ in La Louvière, it was this time on the moon itself that all the inhabitants and visitors of Bilbao were invited to discover a show drawing inspiration from Georges Méliès, Hergé, Stanley Kubrick and Jules Verne.

A magical fire organ and an immaculate giant, fantastic characters and whimsical astronauts, luminous scenography, percussions and shooting stars, an aerial ballet and some imposing fireworks took place in a space that could accommodate 25,000 spectators, and whose configuration was reminiscent of a crater’s.
