Since 1998, the Zomeropera in Alden Biesen is active. Every year again they have another top production. Previously realized operas are Don Giovanni, Le Nozze Di Figaro, Die Zauberflöte, La Traviata, Die Fledermaus, Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Carmen. And their offer continues to expand.
But there is also an extra option for children for years. 6 to 10 year olds experience their first unforgettable experiences here.


Il Trovatore - Giuseppe Verdi

May 19 to June 16, 2018

For her 21st season, Zomeropera chose Verdi's masterpiece Il Trovatore.

With Il Trovatore we go into a gypsy environment where love, seduction, deception, revenge and blackmail celebrate and the fate is irreversible.

Success director Carlos Wagner, who already realized Rigoletto and Eugen Onegin for Zomeropera, guaranteed a performance that sticks to the retina. Conductors Enrico Delamboye and Leslie Suganandarajah led a top cast and the Zomeropera orchestra and choir to musical highlights. Marnik Baert designed the decor and the costumes.

Once again it was a sold-out opera in the extraordinary surroundings of the Landcommanderij Alden Biesen.

Alden Biesen is therefore not only a place where concerts and festivals take place. Creation, performance, training and education with innovative concepts will take place. Here will family audience, free time and music experience find each other.
