During Easter week, visitors to Barcelona were able to witness the story of the Passion, the arrest, trial, crucifixion and resurrection of Christ in an exceptional and singular light show using the symbolic façade of the temple of the Sagrada Familia as a screen.
The twelve sculptures representing the passion, which were carved relentlessly by the Barcelonan architect Josep Maria Subirachs for 22 years, lit up to show the public Christ’s final hours.
Thanks to the narrative of the Passion, accompanied by a musical score and the lighting provided by Albadalejo, the public were given on the heart of the Easter festival a chance to see an extraordinary illustration of one of the most symbolic passages of Christian religion.
The light show took place in three sessions repeated on three different days. These sessions started at 20h when the sun’s presence had begun to dwindle in the gathering twilight so as to achieve greater impact with the lighting design.
