Cassandra at La Monnaie

Valdemar is in Brussels where he is covering the leading role Blake in Bernard Fouccroulle’s opera Cassandra at the Royal Opera House La Monnaie.

How can you convince others when they refuse to hear you? Why do some people ignore a future that is right before their eyes? For their first opera, Belgian composer Bernard Foccroulle and librettist Matthew Jocelyn have chosen a highly topical theme: environmental activism in the face of social inertia.

The production is conducted by Kazushi Ono and directed by Marie-Eve Signeyrole.
