On April 15, the Italian association for music criticism (Associazione Nazionale Critici Musicali) awarded its annual Premi Franco Abbiati. Bologna’s Teatro Communale, co-production partner of La Monnaie, received no less than three awards, a first in the 34-year-old history of the most prestigious Italian theatre awards.

Two of them were bestowed on productions originally created by La Monnaie: Guy Joosten’s Elektra in the category Best Director and Alvis Hermanis’ Jenůfa in the category Best Costumes, a wonderful recognition for the designs by Anna Watkins, all handcrafted in the Workshops of La Monnaie.

We would like to congratulate our loyal co-production partner Nicola Sani, intendant of the Teatro Communale di Bologna and collaborator for the past productions of Parsifal, Pélléas et Mélisande and Le Grand Macabre. We look forward to our future joint projects.

Sweeney Todd plays at Flagey Studio 5 on April 21, at 20:00.

What Banksy does with images, the Scottish urban poet Robert Montgomery does with words: a wall, a billboard, a city view bent to his will. His eye-catching installations carry dreamy, critical, and at the same time optimistic messages. They succeed at drawing attention to the hidden poetry of unnoticed public spaces, in order to enrich everyday reality with unexpected layer of meaning. Montgomery is an alchemist with letters. In front of the Muntpaleis, he stages a work with no more than five simple words: All Palaces Are Temporary Palaces. They achieve more than just reminder of the fact that this venue is merely a temporary replacement for our theater under renovation. In between the post-industrial remnants of the former Thurn and Taxis-halls and the proud, brand new Muntpaleis, the phrase at the same time functions as a cautioning vanitas and an explicit call to appreciate fully the fleeting beauty of an intimate aria, a moving performance -- of a newly discovered opera location.

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...
