To finish on a high note, we have invited none other than Stéphanie d’Oustrac to bring our recital season to a close. Last heard at La Monnaie during our extra-muros season, the French mezzo gave a brilliant performance as Béatrice in Béatrice et Bénédict by Hector Berlioz. For this Lieder evening, she meets up once again with the enfant terrible of French Romanticism, whom she partners – as she did on her album Sirènes – with his contemporary and soulmate Franz Liszt. Her programme also turns the spotlight on the French-Spanish composer Pauline Viardot.

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.
