Festival Midsummer Mozartiade
The opera Così fan tutte comes to Brussels’ Théâtre des Martyrs this July as part of the 3rd annual festival Midsummer Mozartiade. In the company of the Royal Chamber Orchestra of Wallonia, six rising stars of the lyric stage sweep us away to a sun-scorched terrace perched high above the Bay of Naples. There, a cynical wager thrusts two young couples into a ‘Temptation Island’ scenario that will put their fidelity to the ultimate test. This new production is the centerpiece of a festive week set to fill the Place des Martyrs and its cultural centers with the music of Mozart and his Neopolitan colleagues. A ‘six star’ opera, a unique song recital, pre-show chats, concerts in the square, conferences in the bookstore … our program is sure to please all audiences, confirmed fans and curious newcomers alike.
