Classics in the City is celebrating its wooden anniversary: for the fifth time in a row the Royal Ballet of Flanders, deFilharmonie and the Flanders Opera will (we hope) be serenading the fine weather on Sint-Jansplein. The last time, under a radiant late summer sun, it broke all the records, with no less than 11,000 visitors, and the presence of Thomas Van der Veken as presenter clearly gave a new élan to this opera concert. So treat yourself to a truly grand Sunday morning when, in the span of ninety minutes, you will hear in a whirlwind all the fine things on the bill this season. All you have to bring is your good mood; we’ll provide the rest.

8 Sept – 11.30 am: Flanders Opera

Team

The conductor Yannis Pouspourakis will once again be guiding the Symphony Orchestra and Chorus of the Flanders Opera through the atmospheric lunchtime concert. Together with a number of international soloists they will perform the finest overtures, arias, duets and choruses from the operas programmed in the 2013-2014 season.
