Royal Opera House – La Monnaie, Brussels
In the 2014-2015 season La Monnaie will be presenting three very differing projects: Shell Shock, Medúlla and Creation 2015. Nick Cave wrote the libretto for the opera creation Shell Shock, Björk lent us her music for Medúlla, the first intergenerational project in La Monnaie, and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is making her new dance performance Creation 2015 to music from Brian Eno. These performances unite music, performance and beauty of the highest level.
Shell Shock is a war story in which soldiers, mothers, prisoners and lost souls take the leading roles. With ‘choreographer of the year’ Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui directing, this performance is guaranteed to be a high point in the planned commemorations for the Great War.
NOTE: Early Birds: best seats will be on sale from Saturday 12 April to Saturday 26 April.
