Classics in the City is celebrating its wooden anniversary: for the fifth time in a row the Royal Ballet of Flanders, deFilharmonie and the Flanders Opera will (we hope) be serenading the fine weather on Sint-Jansplein. The last time, under a radiant late summer sun, it broke all the records, with no less than 11,000 visitors, and the presence of Thomas Van der Veken as presenter clearly gave a new élan to this opera concert. So treat yourself to a truly grand Sunday morning when, in the span of ninety minutes, you will hear in a whirlwind all the fine things on the bill this season. All you have to bring is your good mood; we’ll provide the rest.
7 Sept – 9 pm: Royal Ballet of Flanders
8 Sept – 11.30 am: Flanders Opera
8 Sept – 6 pm: Re-Mix Orchestra
8 Sept – 7 pm: deFilharmonie
