    CORONA MEASURES AND OPERA SPANGA

    You may be wondering whether Opera Spanga's performances will continue this summer. Government measures prohibit all events until June 1. Our performances are scheduled from August 19, so we assume that they will continue as usual. We are fully preparing for WAKE UP!

    Naturally, the safety of our employees and our public is paramount. That is why we keep a close eye on developments surrounding the coronavirus. As these change daily, we are not going to make any decisions about continuing for the time being - unless we are overtaken by a new reality before. We ask for your understanding of this situation.

    Finally, we wish everyone strength and good health.

    BEAUTIFUL REVIEWS IN NATIONAL NEWSPAPERS

    The premiere of Pagliacci & Il Tabarro on Thursday, July 25 was a (tropical) party. On Monday, July 29, reviews appeared in Trouw, Volkskrant and NRC and in the weekend we already read raving reviews in Theaterkrant and Leeuwarder Courant / Dagblad van het Noorden.

    Theaterkrant wrote: "Opera Spanga remains exciting, even when it comes to two melodramas that are actually not that exciting anymore, but that seem to be able to say a lot about people and their problems in this combination."

    NRC: "The audience was allowed to sigh under the oppressive warmth, in the excavated orchestra pit and on stage the play continued to sparkle with energy."
