Season : 
2016-2017
Dates : 
Sat, 20/08/2016 to Thu, 29/06/2017

Last performance at the Opera : Manon Lescaut.

Our new season is built around an artistic line that is true to our House’s tradition: big hits and new discoveries. The 2016-2017 programme – boasting six new productions and two re-openings – therefore showcases the repertoire’s great masterpieces, remembered by everyone: such as Turandot, Nabucco, Don Giovanni, Orphée aux enfers, Otello, while giving top billing to rare works for (re)discovering, like Jérusalem (Verdi), La Damnation de Faust (Berlioz) and Dido and Æneas (Purcell).

To do justice to these works, under the direction of conductors Paolo Arrivabeni, Rinaldo Alessandrini, Daniel Oren, Speranza Scappucci, Guy Van Waas, some esteemed and renowned singers will be our guests: Leo Nucci, José Cura, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo, Nino Surguladze, Virginia Tola, Elaine Alvarez, Pierre-Yves Pruvot, Maria Grazia Schiavo, Cinzia Forte, Marco Spotti, Mario Cassi, not forgetting the always notable presence of Belgian talents Jodie Devos, Marc Laho, Pierre Doyen, Ivan Thirion, Laurent Kubla, and more.

Stage production will be to the fore with the return to Liège of big names such as José Cura (Turandot), whose work we had the privilege to admire in Cavalleria Rusticana & Pagliacci, Ruggero Raimondi (La Damnation de Faust) who previously put his name to an impressive Attila, Jaco Van Dormael (Don Giovanni), the famous Belgian producer who returns to us following Stradella, and the duo Cécile Roussat - Julien Lubek (Dido and Æneas), the project managers of an enchanting Zauberflöte last season.

Also on the agenda is an unforgettable musical moment in the company of the great Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu, who will appear in concert, with our orchestra, during an evening to celebrate French and Italian opera.

Young audiences will not be left out with the re-openings of the family shows Naboccolo and La Flûte enchantée, while the various concerts and activities will delight enthusiasts of these gatherings once again.

It will be a grandiose season, where Legend is side-by-side with History, where power joins with emotions.

And we will see you in the auditorium, the place where magic is at work.
