During the Opera Forward Festival, seven works by photographer Hellen van Meene were to be exhibited in the foyer of the Dutch National Opera & Ballet. This was in addition to the performance The Seven Deadly Sins by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht. Unfortunately, it was not to be. Still, we didn't want to deprive you of the beautiful photographs alltogether.
