Hidden in the pit, homogenised by their black suits, dozens of musicians from around the world, with different experiences and skills, combine to serve a common purpose: to become one through the power of music. But who are they? “THE PIT” follows the orchestral musicians of The Gran Teatre Liceu opera of Barcelona, their lives, their work, their fears and their passions.
