KINDERMUZIEKWEEK IN DUTCH NATIONAL OPERA & BALLET
With its performances of Goud! in April, Dutch National Opera & Ballet is joining in the national Kindermuziekweek (1 - 10 April 2022). During this period, Dutch National Opera will be performing the opera Hup Herman! (2+), based on the picture book of the same name by Yvonne Jagtenberg, and the ballet Full Moon can be seen online for free during the entire Kindermuziekweek.
A small, precious piece of music theater. With an arrangement of mezzo-soprano and percussion, it transports you to the world of fantasy.
The one-hour piece is an absolute recommendation for anyone who initially wants to approach the world of musical theater with caution and who prefers fairytale material with a socially critical foundation.
An appealing, expressive fairytale adaptation.
