Roadshow

This year's Roadshow took place in the context of the annual Kick-off meeting during which Operadagen Rotterdam presented the complete programme of the 2019 festival edition.

Guy Coolen, the artistic director, introduced this year's theme and presented the content of the festival programme comprising contemporary, innovative, and ground-breaking productions, created by young and established makers from all over the world.

"Aptly, Operadagen Rotterdam 2019’s leitmotif is ‘Metamorphosis’. Artists from everywhere – Asia, America, Australia, and Europe – present their individual views on the changes in the world. They thematise fears of the new or, alternatively, show there is hope. They demonstrate how ancient stories transmute when moving from culture to culture and/or how tradition and innovation can go hand in hand in opera and music theatre.

The festive city parade around the theme of Orfeo & Majnun takes place during the opening weekend. Two wonderful love stories from East and West, which are sung and shared by people from many Rotterdam communities. Theatremaker Nicole Beutler unearths 8: METAMORPHOSIS in Purcell’s music. The highly praised Cappella Mediterranea presents the seminal transition narrative of the Flood in Il diluvio universale."

The evening was also an occasion to present some of the major talents and leading-edge makers that will be at the core of this year's programme.
