General Information


New production.

Rediscovery of a rare work by Camille Saint-Saëns.

"La Monnaie brings its cycle devoted to the Tudor monarchs to a close with Henry VIII, a disgracefully neglected opera by Camille Saint-Saëns. This final homage to grand opéra presents the notorious English king at the moment when he seeks to have his marriage to Catherine of Aragon annulled so he can marry Anne Boleyn – and is even willing to challenge the authority of the pope in order to get his way."

More information is available on the official website of the Theater.
