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:
- Norma, on the 19th of December 2021 at 3 PM
