House of Creations

Follow the genesis of our creations from up close


How do you celebrate the 250th birthday of an orchestra that has championed the contemporary repertoire all those years? With the creation of a new symphonic work! After the success of Harold Noben’s chamber opera À l’extrême bord du monde , La Monnaie commissioned the Belgian composer to write a ‘concerto for orchestra’, which will challenge our soloists and give them a real opportunity to shine. Music director Alain Altinoglu will conduct the world première at the opening concert of the 2022-23 season, but until then you can follow each stage of its genesis here.
