The Brussels Light Opera Company is an amateur musical theatre company that performs principally in English and has over 200 members from over 20 nations.
Each year BLOC puts on two shows, one in May-June and one in November. The spring show plays with a small band or orchestra to a 300 to 400-seater theatre and the November show performs with a full orchestra in a 650-seater theatre, each putting on 5 performances.
BLOC welcomes all newcomers. To perform in a show, it is obligatory to audition however formal musical training is not obligatory even though an ability to read music does help during auditions and rehearsals. Non-singing members are very welcome to help backstage, front of house or with administration.
