Production house Muziektheater Transparant enters into an intensive dialogue with artists from various disciplines and creates, renews and presents musical theatre and new opera in its entire diversity for a wide audience. The voice is placed firmly at the centre of the projects, and it continuously blends the old and the new. Other disciplines like visual arts, films, videos, graphics are also integrated in the productions. The company pays particular attention to offering contemporary musicians the chance to develop and try new work. It works with composers like Annelies Van Parys and with artists like Claron McFadden. In TRANSLAB, Muziektheater Transparant opens its doors to young makers of music theatre and offers them support, training and opportunities for creation.

This gives Muziektheater Transparant a unique national and international character.
