Brussels Opera Festival opens in 2016

logo1In times of crisis where one can barely avoid reading news of opera houses being on the brink of a precipice, it is such balsamous news to read of new opera festivals. This one is called Brussels Opera Festival and, according to the webpage (http://bofestival.com) will open in July 2016. The hosting house will be the Royal Park Theatre (facing the Belgian Parlament), which has a history of staging plays, but for a period presented also operettas and opera comiques. The first two production in 2016 will both be Mozart operas, namely Le nozze di Figaro and Zaïde. I can’t wait, and I wish the new festival a prosperous future.
