From the launch of the festivities, Mons 2015 leaves for the routes of its vast territory. After the madness of the Opening Celebration in Mons, Ghent, partner city, takes the baton of the marvel. She has promised us light in the middle of winter! Urban facilities, projections, light sculptures, performances...
For four days, squares, canals, belfry and streets of the historic centre will be the setting for a surprising artistic schedule which invites you to take a new look at the city and its jewels. Artists and performers from all over Europe and the entire world, more than 500,000 visits, Ghent will be a meeting crossroads, a leading gathering place around art and culture, inspiring, fascinating.
Ghent, crowned “UNESCO creative city of music”, will also be a partner of Mons 2015 for the new creation of the opera L’Autre Hiver by Dominique Pauwels, Normand Chaurette, Denis Marleau and Stéphanie Jasmin, project brought by LOD-muziek theater.
