La Monnaie Chorus

Prepares for the ‘Trilogia’

Whatever politicians may be claiming, nobody is better suited to embody “the voice of the people” than our Choir. From partying peasants to wide-awake soldiers, from experienced sailors to loyal servants: no challenge too great for our choristers. In the Trilogia Mozart Da Ponte, for once, they can just be themselves: Brusseleirs in this present day and age. In a two-part documentary we follow them in their preparations for our Mozartian triptych.

Episode 1: Soprano Lieve Jacobs talks of her experience in working with ‘le lab’ on the first scenic rehearsals, and we asked Alberto Moro about his collaboration with maestro Antonello Manacorda who’s just taken over after weeks of preparatory work by our choirmaster.

Episode 2: We're in the final stretch to our Trilogia Mozart Da Ponte, time to put the finishing touches to our choristers' costumes, hair and makeup.
