In a career spanning three decades, Simon Keenlyside has become one of the world’s leading singers. Highly demanded throughout the world, it’s been three seasons since he last performed in Brussels. Time to renew the bond with the audience at La Monnaie. The celebrated baritone and his accompanist Graham Johnson present a programme that combines intimate German Romanticism with French insouciance, while Benjamin Britten’s songs add a British nod to The Turn of The Screw, to be seen on our opera stage in January.

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.
