‘Is this the end?’ to proceed as planned, an homage to Patrick Davin
The unexpected and tragic death of conductor Patrick Davin made a deep impression on our institution as well as the international music scene. Our thoughts are with his family and friends, with all colleagues who knew him, and with the many artists and coworkers closely involved in the preparations for Is this the end?. In accord with the wishes of the family, we have decided that this creation, in which Patrick poured so much energy and passion, will be performed as planned.
Dust off your 2020 cultural agenda. Starting in September, after a silence that has lasted way too long, there will once again be music ringing through La Monnaie! Discover our adapted programme extending through the end of November here.
These past couple months, La Monnaie was able to count on your very generous support. Thanks to your many donations during the compensation of our cancelled performances, we managed to collect over 240.000 euros. An essential financial backing to bridge this period of crisis. Thank you!
