After his interpretation of the title role in Orlando in 2012, Bejun Mehta returns to La Monnaie for an original recital centred on the countertenor voice: the variety of its inflections (androgynous, feminine, masculine, powerful, or sensitive) is well suited to the diversity of a repertoire that ranges from Mozart to Britten, evoking the different forms that love can take. A voice that says in many ways what it means to love.

La Monnaie

The Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie is an Opera house in Brussels, Belgium. Both of its names translate as Royal Theatre of the Mint.


Today the National Opera of Belgium, a federal institution, takes the name of the theatre in which it is housed. Therefore, la Monnaie or de Munt refers both to the structure as well as the opera company.


As Belgium's leading opera house it is one of the few cultural institutions which receives financial support from the federal government of Belgium. Other opera houses in Belgium, such as the Vlaamse Opera and the Opéra Royal de Wallonie, are funded by regional governments.
