La Monnaie I De Munt

Rediscovering Mozart & Da Ponte with an orchestra

with Alain Altinoglu

11 - 14 March 2020

La Monnaie I De Munt

La Monnaie / De Munt and its MM Academy organise an exceptional workshop for singers to rediscover Mozart & Da Ponte’s masterpieces with a full scale symphonic orchestra under the baton of renowned conductor Alain Altinoglu.

The objective of this workshop is to challenge young singers, who are usually used to sing this repertoire with a pianist, to work their interpretation in front of a full scale orchestra while being directed by an experienced conductor.

The first 2 days of workshop will be dedicated to working with coaches, including an Italian coach whilst the last two days will be focused on working with Alain Altinoglu and the orchestra.  

An open session with orchestra will be organised for the opera house audiences as well as for the audience of the Museum night fever hosted by La Monnaie during the evening of March 14th 2020.
