L'Opera Seria : starting hour advanced to 7pm

Th  4  February 2016

During rehearsals it became clear that our version of this opera would be longer than initially anticipated. In order to offer our public the luxury of two intervals as well as the closing time at a reasonable hour, we decided to start the show at 7pm (instead of 7:30pm).

Frankenstein postponed

Fr  29  January 2016

The production of Frankenstein - the new creation that La Monnaie commissioned from the American composer Mark Grey, based on an idea by Alex Ollé of La Fura dels Baus - is postponed to a later date. Instead of Frankenstein, we will close this season with another first for La Monnaie, which is also “out of the box”: namely Sweeney Todd.

We have been forced to make this decision as a result of both technical and budgetary complications. The venue at Tour & Taxis has unfortunately turned out not to be the ideal location to achieve what the creative team had in mind and what a world creation of this international importance would deserve. We have decided to carry out this project in one of the next seasons and at our home venue La Monnaie. This was the setting we had originally planned and for which the project had been designed and destined.
