THE GOLDEN AGE OF PARAL·LEL AVENUE

    We present you our itinerary about the golden age of the Parallel and the extraordinary panorama of its shows between 1894 and 1939, one of the brightest in the Western world. We will begin our route in the epicenter of the city of sin, the "Barri Xino", frequented in the 1930s by writers such as Jean Genet and Georges Bataille. Following his adventures, we will walk through a neighborhood marked by its scandalous brothels, cabarets and nightclubs. Our tour will revolve around various areas: the Arnau Theater and the Apolo Theater (where we will evoke the world of fairgrounds and attractions, anatomical museums and the unusual "Cabaret of Death"), the lights and shadows of the mythical Molino and the irruption of the seventh art on the stages of the Condal Theater, among other stories. As an epilogue, we will relate the ravages of the civil war on the Parallel scene and the role of the air-raid shelters in Poble Sec. From here, our visit will continue to the Museum of Performing Arts in the “Institut del Teatre”, where we will be able to admire its collections of fine arts, costumes, figurines and automatons and the memories of memorable figures such as Conchita Badia, Raquel Meller and Carmen Tórtola Valencia. Prices according to group size (includes cultural itinerary and guided visit to the Performing Arts Museum).
