The federal opera house in the capital of Europe


Bejun Mehta & Jonathan Ware

After his interpretation of the title role in Orlando in 2012, Bejun Mehta returns to La Monnaie for an original recital centred on the countertenor voice: the variety of its inflections (androgynous, feminine, masculine, powerful, or sensitive) is well suited to the diversity of a repertoire that ranges from Mozart to Britten, evoking the different forms that love can take. A voice that says in many ways what it means to love.

Available until 10 May
