The Word presents “A night at the opera” with La Monnaie

We’ve  joined forces with La Monnaie, one of Europe’s most venerable opera institutions, and organised two nights giving the chance to 20 lucky readers to win a ticket to one of two upcoming performances and, better still, invite two friends of theirs to join in on the fun. The more the merrier, right? Read on to find out what you need to do to win.

Opera, to us, is one of those rare art forms that combines many different artistic disciplines. You have the singing, of course, the acting, obviously, and the art directing. There’s the scenography, too, and the set design. Then there’s the costume design, key to each performance, as is the music orchestration. All these elements form like Voltron, providing opera-goers with a mouth-full of wows after wows. And we’re on a mission to school our readership on the pleasures – orgasms even – you’re likely to get whilst out on a night at the opera. So, we’re giving the chance to 20 lucky readers to win a ticket to one of two upcoming performances and, better still, invite two friends of theirs to join in on the fun. The more the merrier, right?

The two performances in question are L’Elisir d’Amore on 16th September at Cirque Royale and Powder her face on 30th September at Les Halles de Schaerbeek. What you need to do to win? Simple. Drop us an email titled “A night at the opera” at wewrite@thewordmagazine.com, clearly stating which performance you’d like to take your friends to – either L’Elisir d’Amore or Powder her face – attaching to it you’re best selfie ever. The 20 readers to do so will each win three tickets: one for them, two for their friends. Let the fun begin…
