L'Heure Espagnole

Youth Orchestra Flanders is proud to announce its first project with partner Opera Ballet Vlaanderen. In December 2021 Youth Orchestra Flanders will perform under the baton of Yi-Chen Lin, L’Heure Espagnole. The comédie musicale by Maurice Ravel premiered in the Opéra-Comique in Paris in 1911. The production is enriched by the direction of regisseur Tom Gossens and the performances of the dancers of Opera Ballet Vlaanderen. With three performances for our opera debut, we’re looking forward to see you again in the beautiful Opera house in Gent!
