With the same taste for eclecticism and vocal brilliancy that brought her international opera fame, the Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek presents a recital programme that focuses on several composers who brought a particular flavour to the art of the song in the twentieth century. Accompanied by pianist Julius Drake, she will revisit the repertoires of Samuel Barber, Kurt Weil, and Joaquín Turina, as well as those of lesser-known composers such as Jesús Guridi and Carlos Guastavino. An exuberant Spanish-American evening to kick off the New Year.

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.
