A night at the opera: Grandgeorge and Verdi’s Macbeth at La Monnaie/De Munt

We’ve once again teamed up with La Monnaie / De Munt to give 10 readers the chance to bring their +1’s to a night at the opera on Friday 23rd September. Read on to find out how to get your name down on the guest list.

Bringing a modern twist to the famed opera classic, young British-French director Olivier Fredj blurs the boundaries between fantasy and reality in his interpretation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, a piece that inspired Verdi to take a decidedly more dramatic turn in his compositions. With digital collages by Jean Lecointre as backdrop, the mystery that surrounds Macbeth is only deepened by the near-nightmarish production.

We have 10 duo tickets to give to 10 lucky readers for the Friday 23rd September performance of Macbeth which will be followed by a mini-concert by Grandgeorge. As usual, the night also includes a private introduction to the production as well as a meet-and-greet with the singers and a special encounter between Grandgeorge and the cast following the show. To win, all you need to do is subscribe to our newsletter and email a screenshot of the subscription confirmation to wewrite@thewordmagazine.com by Wednesday 21st September at the latest. The first 10 readers to do so will each win two tickets to the performance: one for themselves and one for their +1’s.
