Christmas concert

Buy tickets
January 1970

Surviving an oversized family meal, badly decorating a fir tree, racing against time to wrap your presents: some rituals are difficult to escape during the holidays. None of those traditions can compare, however, to the atmosphere of a concert of choral music, especially when it is sung by children. Accompanied by our MM Laureates and conducted by Benoît Giaux, La Monnaie’s Children’s and Youth Choir will bring you a bit of extra warmth in December in seven popular traditional Christmas scenes.

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.
