The Royal opera of Liège in Belgium goes live at 3pm (2pm London, 9am NY) with a concert in memory of its widely lamented director Steffano Mazzonis.

Music director Speranza Scapucci conducts – all safely distanced, of couse.

Watch here.


  • Anthony Sayer says:

    Fitting that a lamentable conductor should be in charge of it, then.

    • CJ says:

      Unfair comment. Maybe you have never attended an opera at the “Opéra de Wallonie” in Liège. Speranza Scapucci is an enthusiastic and competent conductor and Stefano Mazzonis di Pralafera was a marvelous and highly appreciated and regretted director. The pair produced marvelous productions, with good singers and sumptuous sceneries and costumes, which is not so common nowadays.
      I was always travelling to see them and it was well worth the trip.
