A book collection for 'Cassandra'

Your book at the opera!  From May 3, La Monnaie is organising a major book collection at the occasion of the production of the opera Cassandra next September. The book you donate will have a strong symbolic presence in the staging of Marie-Eve Signeyrole and in the universe imagined by the scenographer, Fabien Teigné.

We are launching an appeal to readers of these Brussels public libraries to donate a book to La Monnaie.

Donors will be invited to a (free) guided tour of our Theatre. The opportunity to discuss Cassandra and its two heroines who alert society to future disasters without being listened to.

In practice:

  • Go to the library of your choice with a (single) book in pocket format (11x18 cm) OR digest (14 x 21.6 cm) OR novel (15 x 21 cm).
  • Fill in the postcard that you will receive and slip it into the book you wish to donate. Return the book and card to your librarian.
  • You will then be invited to discover the La Monnaie Theatre and the Cassandra project during a guided tour in June 2023.
