Ganymed goes Brussels; Lize Spit


Experience the old masters with all your senses and explore art history with new eyes! Theatre, music, dance and performances invite you to explore the present through the past at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Let yourself be captivated and get immersed into the breath-taking performance Ganymed goes Brussels
Nine contemporary authors and composers draw inspiration from the great old masters to create original works. Their texts and compositions will be turned into brief but unique theatrical scenes. Each evening an ensemble of actors, musicians, singers and dancers will perform these scenes simultaneously and several times in a row, with the art works of the Old Masters Museum as a back drop.
Come wander around the museum and discover the fascinating universe of Ganymed
