The federal opera house in the capital of Europe


Audio description

Keen on enriching the opera experience for everyone, La Monnaie has committed itself to provide a number of performances with an audio description. This allows the visually impaired theatregoer to listen to a description of what is happening on the stage via headphones. A commentator’s voice summarises the action live, situates it in time and place, and provides details about clothing, hairdos and facial expressions – all these elements contribute to the telling of the tale and are part of a high-quality opera experience.

This season, in a partnership with Inter and Audioscenic, La Monnaie offers a free audio description (in Dutch and French) during the following performances:

  • Falstaff (27.12.2020)
  • Parsifal (date to be confirmed)
