The Opéra Royal de Wallonie – Liège

The Opéra Royal de Wallonie – Liège is one of three Belgian Opera Theatres (the others are La Monnaie of Brussels and the Vlaamseoper of Antwerp.
Built in 1820, it was completely restored in 2009/2012 at a cost of € 31 million, 50% of which was paid by the European Union. Today it is one of the highest performing theatres in Europe with a seating capacity of 1030. During the restoration (which lasted 2 years and 4 months) the Opéra of Liège produced its performances in the big tent of Palafenice of Venice, rechristened PalaisOpera for the occasion.
Since the 2007/2008 season, the General and Artistic Director has been Stefano Mazzonis di Pralafera, appointed in January 2006, after a selection by open application, in which 26 candidates from all over the world participated.
Currently Stefano Mazzonis di Pralafera is the only Italian directing an opera theatre abroad. The Opéra Royal de Wallonie – Liège produces, on average, 8 subscription performances per year, plus two shows for young people.
In recent years the following are the world premieres presented in Liège: Stradella by Cesar Franck,William Tell by André Modest Gretry, L'inimico delle donne by Baldassare Galuppi (at the time of the performance an International Convention on Galuppi was held, organised by the Theatre with the University of Liège), La gazzetta by Gioachino Rossini (with the quintet found by Philip Gossett): it will be performed in June 2014.
