At the Flanders Opera the transition from the old year to the new is being celebrated with sparkling dance music, with the operas and operettas of Donizetti, Offenbach, Bernstein, Johann Strauss and Léhar as a rich source of inspiration. Their great common denominator is that they are all bursting with joie de vivre. We experience dance tunes, drinking parties and jolly festivities in the most flamboyant and danceable arias performed by our own native talent. Let yourself be transported by lively rhythms and melodies and enter 2014 in an atmosphere of joyful merriment!


Length: 2 h 30 min, incl. break.

Tickets from € 15.00 to € 50.00


The Flemish soprano Hendrickje Van Kerckhove, now in demand all over Europe, will for this occasion be returning to the Flanders Opera for the first time since 2009. Together with the conductor Ryuichiro Sonoda, who provided the zest in the cheery Il viaggio a Reims, she will provide an explosive end to the old year and the beginning of the new. The outstanding players of the Flanders Opera orchestra are as always on duty at New Year specially for you.
