For the world première of Cassandra (September 2023), a new opera by Bernard Foccroulle in which the young activist Sandra fights for climate protection and, like her mythical counterpart, tries to make herself heard, La Monnaie is putting together a large amateur choir.
Do you like singing, do you care about environmental issues and would you like to participate in the creation of an opera? As a choir member, you will attend three rehearsals each month between October 2022 and June 2023, and you will get to know the inside of La Monnaie during guided tours, events, encounters and dress rehearsals of our opera performances. The choral repertoire will be varied and include a whole variety of topical and activist songs as well as suggestions from chorus members themselves.
