Guided tours



An epicentre of contemporary opera creation, a unique piece of Belgian heritage, an artistic hotspot where age-old craftsmanship is continued: La Monnaie is all this, and much more. Curious about our opera house and the stories of its past and present? Visit our Theatre or our Workshops during one of the following guided tours.

Guided tour ‘La Monnaie Workshops’
Every first Saturday of the month, our guides take you to the beating heart of our opera house: the workshops. There, our collaborators create all the sets, costumes and props for our performances with passion, creativity and expertise. What does all this involve? How does modern technology intervene in authentic theatre craftmanship? What secrets lie behind the upcoming productions? Let yourself be amazed for an hour and a half.

Guided tour ‘Discover La Monnaie!’
This guided tour of La Monnaie immerses you in the fascinating world of the opera, in its history and architecture: from the glitz and glamour of the Main Auditorium, the Grand Staircase, the Grand Foyer and the Royal Salon to the Museum Space where authentic machinery and a wonderful maquette of a baroque theatre à l’italienne are on display. Our guides will share with you their passion for, and knowledge of one of the most innovating opera houses in Europe.
