La Monnaie: Beyond the Stage A behind-the-scenes look at one of the world's most prestigious opera houses

About

Every evening, the curtain rises. "We all believe in utopia here!" Onstage and behind the scenes, in rehearsals and offices, more than 400 people—visible or invisible—work to make that utopia a reality. They are les enchanteurs.

What is an opera house? Who works there and how do they make their magic? What links the Royal Theatre of La Monnaie in Brussels with society and with audiences? Filmed over two stunning seasons of opera, during a troubled time when the prominence of culture seems to be fading in Europe, les enchanteurs defend their vision of the world and of the society they live in.
