Christoph Prégardien, his son Julian, and the pianist Michael Gees continue their fruitful collaboration in Romantic lieder. Alternating solos and duets, this recital explores, through the tenor voice, the lied’s entire range of expression, from the tender melancholy of Mozart’s Abendempfindung an Laura to the chilling atmosphere of Schubert’s Der Zwerg.

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.
