The academic world is also looking forward to our new production of Scenes from Goethe’s Faust.

In partnership with KU Leuven and the University of Toronto, Opera Ballet Vlaanderen is organising an international symposium with Schumann’s masterpiece as its focal point.

Musicologists, literature and theatre experts conduct a dialogue with each other and with the artistic team. Together they will analyse how Schumann and other composers tackled Goethe’s fascinating play and how, in the process, they frequently challenged the boundaries of musical theatre.
