Audio description

La Monnaie is keen to welcome everyone, including people with a visual impairment. During certain performances, they can listen to a description of what is happening on the stage via headphones. A commentator’s voice summarises the action live, places 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.

La Monnaie has committed itself to provide a number of performances with an audio description this season:

  • Pikovaya Dama (28.04.2020)
  • Der Rosenkavalier (21.06.2020)
