Liège Day Care Centre


For more than fifteen years, the Opéra Royal de Wallonie- Liège has been working with CEJOLI, welcoming adults with disabilities to the stage each year, so that they can take part as extras in several of its productions.

It was during the 2008-2009 season that the Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège included actors from the CEJOLI in its productions for the very first time, in Il Barbiere di Siviglia. This long-term collaboration promotes the development and skills of adults with disabilities and contributes to their full integration, in a joint inclusive approach. During the 2023-2024 season, CEJOLI actors participated as extras in two productions: Il Turco in Italia and Dialogues des Carmélites. Candidates are involved in the whole process and have an audition involving participation in a scene onstage. The people selected by the director then join the artistic team of the Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège and take part, from the outset, in all the rehearsals. The Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège is delighted with this collaboration.
