La Monnaie I De Munt

Belgium, Brussels



La Monnaie, situated in the heart of Brussels, the capital of Europe, is a major player in the international opera scene. It has already won the title ‘Opera House of the Year’ in 2011. The great classics are performed here as well as first productions of new works, from early music to modern compositions, which are subjected to creative and innovative staging, in keeping with our times. Peter de Caluwe, the general director of La Monnaie, has not hesitated in inviting, side by side with the top singers and the great conductors, a new generation of singers, stage and musical directors who are renowned for their considerable talent, like the young conductor, Ludovic Morlot, who is in charge of La Monnaie’s Symphony Orchestra this season.

Apart from opera, La Monnaie has developed a programme where music comes to life on its stage in other forms and formats. This multidisciplinary programme will interest lovers of singing as much as lovers of dance, the theatre, the visual arts and cinema.
