La Monnaie launches season with lashings of Kierkegaard

We have a soft spot for the Brussels opera house. It has a fantastic record for talent, innovation and counter-intuitive presentation over the past quarter-century and it’s always pushing out the envelope.

So when intendant Peter de Caluwe launches his season with seven new productions couched in quotations from the gloomiest philosopher since the Biblical Jeremiah, well…. maybe he’s onto something.

Read Peter’s thoughtful speech here.

  • The Monnaie production of the three Rachmaninoff operas last season was the worst Regie I’ve ever seen, and I’m shocked to see that the culprit has been invited back to massacre Butterfly with her “performance art”.
