The soprano Jodie Devos made a lasting impression on the audience when she made her La Monnaie debut as Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. She is now putting her vocal virtuosity at the service of Offenbach, the bicentenary of whose birth we are celebrating in 2019 – and whose Les Contes d’Hoffmann La Monnaie is also staging this season. Jodie Devos will reintroduce us to some of the composer’s most iconic pieces and reveal some rarely heard pearls.
