Dec 20: night at the opera

I’m just back from La Monnaie where I went to see Ambroise Thomas’ Hamlet. In all it’s darkness I found it absolutely beautiful and powerful. The multi-dimensional stage design was amazing and the contemporary and traditional elements of opera met in perfect harmony. There are still two nights and a few seats left, so I highly recommend booking your place HERE if you wish to start the Christmas celebrations with some culture.
