What are all the other possibilities for things to do during the performance period of Aida related to Leeuwarden Friesland 2018?
On the opera grounds and in the close vicinity... with a pictorial representation by Noorderlicht, four contemporary triumphal marches, the non-existent birds by O.C.Hooymeijer and an exhibition and boat trip by Forestry Management.
You will spend two nights (breakfast included) in the wonderful sport hotel Iselmar in Lemmer.
That is also the starting point for your e-bike tour (12 kilometers) which takes you along the old sea dike with its splendid panoramic views, to Friesland’s most beautiful nature reserve. Upon arrival you will transfer to a kayak provided by Kayak Tjonger Tours and you will debark at Opera Spanga accompanied by the giant fire butterfly and the purple heron.
Next you will be treated to a three course dinner framed by four newly composed triumphal marches before attending the performance of Verdi’s masterpiece Aida!
Filled with memories of all these experiences, you will be returned to your hotel room in the ECO bus of Taxicentrale van der Bles.

In November 2017, the Opera Spanga team, together with the Maltese colleagues from MCAST, filmed the film content of the opera Aida. Here an impression:
Under the auspices of Leeuwarden-Fryslan 2018 Opera Spanga is producing three Verdi classics: Macbeth (2016), La Traviata (very successfully performed this past summer) and Aida in 2018.
The latter will be performed not only in Spanga, but also in the splendid open air theater of Valletta, Teatru Rjal.
