La Monnaie: past, present and future

You want to make an original outing with your association or organization, with friends or acquaintances? A tour behind the scenes of la Monnaie immerses you into the wonderful world of opera.

La Monnaie owes its great international reputation to the high quality of its artistic productions, the cultural diversity of the house and of the artists and its leading role in terms of audience development.

A guide will take you along the entrance hall, the stairs of honour, the Grand Foyer, the Main Auditorium, the Royal Box and the Royal Salon. The history and architecture of this opera house are well narrated as well as the secrets of the creation of an opera. Included is also a visit to our museum space, where a unique model of an Italian style baroque theatre can be discovered.

Attention! For practical and safety reasons a visit to the stage, the backstage and the workshops is not part of this tour. Moreover, the confirmation of your demand depends on the rehearsal schedule, which is always changeable. A demand is no guarantee. If a tour on the requested date is not possible, we will be happy to search with you for an alternative.
