The federal opera house in the capital of Europe



Kris Defoort


A world premiere is always an exceptional experience. How often in opera do you get the chance to involve the composer in a production, to ask him yourself how he sees and hears his piece?

On the eve of the creation of The Time of Our Singing, Kris Defoort gives a unique insight into the genesis of his new opera, and even takes to the piano to play musical excerpts. Author Richard Powers, too, will be present in the form of an exclusive video interview that was recorded beforehand, in which he answers questions from the artistic team and collaborators on the production.

Do you have a ticket for the performance? Then you can attend this intriguing meeting for a limited audience completely free of charge, by booking online after having logged in to your account.
