The Castafiore Emerald

News ~ Thursday 20th August 2015

A lyrical comedy based on the work by Hergé
World première at the Château de la Hulpe, from 17 to 27 September 2015

Following 20 years of performing the greatest masterpieces (over 350 shows) to nearly a million spectators, the Opera for All association is about to launch a new production, a creation that stays true to the values upon which the association was established: developing Belgium's cultural and architectural heritage, supporting national artists and opening opera to all.
After Don Giovanni, Carmen, The Marriage of Figaro, La Bohème, Madame Butterfly, The Barber of Seville, The Magic Flute, Rigoletto, La Traviata, Aïda, The Tales of Hoffman... It is time this summer to wonder at another great diva from the classical tradition: Bianca Castafiore!

Adapted from Hergé's Tintin album Les Bijoux de la Castafiore, and set to music from the greatest opera arias and on work by François de Carpentries, the lyrical event is not to be missed.
In front of the Château de la Hulpe (somewhat reminiscent of Marlinspike Hall) the audience will witness their favourite characters Tintin, Captain Haddock, Bianca Castafiore, Thomson and Thompson, Professor Calculus, Nestor and others reliving the comic adventure The Castafiore Emerald.

Listen to a preview of the forthcoming performance – “March of the Thom(p)sons” from The Castafiore Emerald:
