All Arias is the start of a new tradition: a biennial festival of domestic and foreign music theatre, in which cultural partners from Bruges, Antwerp and Ghent join forces to present a compelling and varied programme. This first edition focuses on literary classics and great stories from different continents. They tell us about exploitation and inequality, but at the same time sing about a universal quest for freedom and justice. The festival features a range of music theatre productions by composers such as Bushra El-Turk, Huang Ruo and Lieselot De Wilde. This first edition of All Arias immerses the audience in a kaleidoscope of contemporary creations, drawn from Eastern and Western musical traditions. Come along and get caught up in the multi-coloured stories of All Arias!
