No happy ending

Concept and Staging

Dutch National Opera Academy
in cooperation with Entrée

Koorzaal of The Royal Concertgebouw (Amsterdam)

Arias from Così fan tutte and Don Giovanni by W. A. Mozart, complemented with newly written texts.

The story of a murdered father, a daughter in mourning, a useless husband, a deceived woman and a broken wife. All because a single man! A man who left a trail of destruction everywhere he went, but has felt no remorse, not even for one single moment. This story is a story that needs to be told over and over again, regardless of its horror, in order to make sure that such a tragedy will never occur again.
