Presentation

The La Monnaie Chorus is an institution as old as the theatre itself! Our chorus singers, a pool of talented performers, master an impressive repertoire and often deliver the most spellbinding moments of your opera evening. This time, they have the stage for themselves... Chorus master Martino Faggiani compiled an intriguing programme with rarely performed compositions for choir and organ accompaniment, such as Benjamin Britten’s Missa Brevis and the meditative Via crucis by Franz Liszt. An evening of elegant polyphony and heartwarming tutti in the mighty acoustics of the Brussels Dominican’s church.
