Due to the closure of theaters in Belgium as of December 26, 2021 decreed by the authorities, the Opéra Royal of Wallonie-Liège has chosen to take the following measures concerning the performances scheduled for January:
- Given the uncertainty in which the absence of a date for the reopening of theaters plunges us, we regret to have to cancel the Love and Death concert scheduled for January 16. Out of respect for the audience and the artists, we cannot begin rehearsals for such a large program without being able to present it in good conditions. Ticket holders will be personally contacted by the box office for a refund of their tickets.
- Rehearsals for Mese Mariano (Giordano) and Suor Angelica (Puccini) as well as the participatory opera for young audiences Le Dernier Sorcier (Pauline Viardot) will begin in early January as planned. As these productions will be performed at the end of January, we hope that the authorities will reconsider their decisions in the meantime, so that we can present these works to the public in conditions that will do justice to the work that has been done.
We will keep you informed of any change in these arrangements.
Thank you for your understanding.
