Summer outdoor event

Antwerp’s outdoor classics festival is now already in its fourth year and continues to grow. The combination of a relaxed festival atmosphere and a varied programme of classical music and dance ensures that every year more and more people head for Sint-Jansplein.

In the meantime it has become a tradition for our house conductor Yannis Pouspourikas to signal the start, which will take place at 11:30 on Sunday, with the Flanders Opera Symphony Orchestra, Chorus and Children’s Chorus and several soloists. After this audiences will be given a rapid overview of what the new season at the Flanders Opera has in store. The festival will be rounded off with the Sunday night concert by deFilharmonie, which has also long been a tradition.

As always, we will be pulling out all the stops in this opener to the cultural season: The Flanders Opera Chorus, Children’s Chorus and Symphony Orchestra are ready to completely overwhelm you. Once again they will be joined by several soloists who will give of their best on the Flanders Opera stage this season.
