On 10 September, Alejo Pérez opened the season in Antwerp as music director of Opera Vlaanderen with Mozart's La clemenza di Tito; in October, the production directed by Milo Rau can also be seen in Ghent.

At the start of his fifth season as music director of Opera Vlaanderen, Alejo Pérez conducts Mozart's masterpiece, which is being staged in Antwerp and Ghent. Swiss director Milo Rau asks whether Titus is really acting out of selflessness when he does not punish the assassins who sought his life. In the midst of a political and artistic elite world, could his goodness not also be a hidden strategy of self-preservation?
