The Palau de la Música Catalana has canceled the presentation of “Only the Sounds Remains” by Kaija Saariaho.

The performance, which is set to be held on Oct. 14 was set to be directed by Aleksis Barrière and star countertenor Michał Sławecki and baritone Bryan Murray as well as El Cuarteto vocal del Cor de Cambra del Palau de la Música Catalana. The production would have also starred Kaiji Moriyama, Cuarteto Ardeo, and conductor Ernest Martínez Izquierdo.

However, the production was canceled due to technical difficulties and the Palau is currently looking for an alternate venue to show the opera in Barcelona.

The theater is presently not refunding ticketholders but is offering vouchers for other performances.
