Opera for all


Back to list
Going to the opera with their teacher is often the first contact with lyrical art that the children experience. In the exceptional setting of the Opera Hall, everything is in place to allow them to discover this total art form in all its aspects: the thrills that it generates, the themes it covers, the artistic and technical know-how it requires, etc.

Each year as part of their school programme, almost 15,000 pupils, from the four corners of Belgium, attend activities, rehearsals or performances at the Opera Royal de Wallonie-Liège. Discovering the lyrical genre is often a first-time experience for the children and young people who come to the opera house with their teachers. The outstanding setting of the concert hall makes the event even more original.

Coming to the opera allows them to discover a unique art form and the thrills that it can inspire. It also helps them think about society and its values through the subjects covered. Lastly, it enables them to get to grips with artistic and technical professions and know-how that deserve to be known.
