Located one street Dominicans, 4000 Liege, the Royal Opera of Wallonia is a true symbol of the city of Liege.
To choose a company that specializes in this specific area and have the best vision on site supervision, the City ofLiege has decided to launch two different markets. The first concerns the renovation and expansion of the Opera.
The second relates to the technical stage and set design. The overall budget for this project reaches € 26,900,000. To recall, the funding is as follows: 50% for the Walloon Region, 40% of the ERDF, and the remaining 10% is borne by the city of Liege.
After the designation of the building renovation is the installation company of machinery which was designated scenic December 30, 2009 by the Municipal College of Liege.
- The various items of construction include the updating of the template of the stage house (it will be enhanced by 4 meters) and machinery to maximize the potential of scenography and theater to be brought up to standards of the greatest opera houses . With this technology upgrades, security infrastructure utilization stage will also be increased significantly. The orchestra pit and the front stage will be redesigned to improve the sound quality at all levels of the room. The research focuses also on spectator comfort (seat ventilation of the room, new reception areas, etc. …), the quality of lighting, replacement of roofs and windows and the restoration of facades . The “new” Opera in Liege will also incorporate a rehearsal room the size of the plateau, staff offices and upgraded dressing rooms for the reception of artists. After these extensive renovations, the city of Liege will have a jewel of international opera, able to seduce even the most demanding musicomanes.
- Construction of the Royal Opera of Wallonia is divided into two phases: the renewal of equipment related to the stage and then the restoration of the building by the general contractor. This splitting procedure is made necessary for obvious reasons of security as well as the technical impossibility to coexist in the same place of business activities so diverse.
