    BEAUTIFUL REVIEWS FOR THE OTHER

    NRC, Theaterkrant, Leeuwarder Courant and Place de l'Opera, among others, reviewed The Other.

    “The opera plays very cinematically with flashbacks, mutual deception and with dreams of Friesland as a safe place and even fragments of Frisian in the libretto. Filming opera is a laborious endeavor: the theatricality of a stage performance quickly clashes with the more intimate character of film. The Others has found a very good compromise.” (Leeuwarder Courant)

    CAMPAIGN IMAGE BY NIKKI PELAEZ

    The campaign image for WAKE UP! (2020) is by Nikki Pelaez. When Corina van Eijk saw this work, she thought: "It's as if Nikki made this especially for the two poignant operas of WAKE UP! Nikki Pelaez creates an enigmatic world in which the theme of innocence (and losing it) is central. Her work is full of contradictions, in terms of content as well as form and technique. Themes like; familiarity and alienation, innocence and depravity, connectedness and loneliness play a role.

    We are proud that Nikki Pelaez wants to connect her work to our new production WAKE UP! Check out her beautiful work on her website.
    NB: after canceling WAKE UP! we have chosen to use the same image for The Other.
