Museum Night Fever
This is not a museum
Everybody knows that La Monnaie is not a museum. During Museum Night Fever, La Monnaie will be transformed into a multi-sensory laboratory and will hold a revolutionary forum bringing together the public, art and artists. Touch the artworks – touch the artists: everything goes!
In 1830, the performance of Auber’s first grand opera, La Muette de Portici, at La Monnaie led to the start of the Belgian Revolution. 184 years later, La Monnaie is calling you to a new revolution – this time individual – against prejudice and restrictions in opera and society.
Come to La Monnaie and call out ‘NO!’ in every language and in every way. Opera voices will be accompanied by a solid bass line and costumes and evening gowns are banned. Be casual and make some noise! For some happy participants, the occupation will last all night long: they will have the chance to spend the night at La Monnaie.
Rebel with us!
