The federal opera house in the capital of Europe



New Year's Eve
at the opera!


A new year's eve unlike any other

Say goodbye to the old with a sizzling production of Les contes d’Hoffmann. Call in the new with a fantastic feast, attended by the cast, and start 2020 on our majestic balconies offering a magnificent view over the city of Brussels and its fireworks. La Monnaie invites you to come and celebrate New Year’s Eve at the opera!

For this special night, we’ve come up with three packages, each named after one of Hoffmann’s love interests.

  • The Olympia package means you start off your New Year’s Eve with our production of Les Contes d’Hoffmann. A grand soirée in itself, it also offers you the possibility to go and explore the evening’s festivities in the city centre after the performance.
  • Does an evening like this merit a little something extra? With the Antonia package, you get to enjoy a glass of champagne and a plate of appetizers during each of the intermissions. A sparkling extra touch.
  • Feel like your New Year’s Eve deserves an all-out experience? Thanks to the Giulietta package*, on top of the aforementioned perks, you are invited to dine with cast, Music Director Alain Altinoglu and our General Director Peter de Caluwe. A festive buffet will be set up on the top floor of our theatre. No better location to behold the New Year’s fireworks above Brussels.

Whichever way you wish to celebrate, it’ll be an unforgettable experience for any lover of opera.
