landscape opera

Panorama Ysselsteyn


The only German military cemetery in the Netherlands is located in Ysselsteyn, a 15-minute drive from Overloon War Museum. A dazzling number of crosses with white letters, for every one killed. Two special locations that are inextricably linked. Sounds cover the cemetery every day at 11 am, 2 pm and 4 pm. This fascinating sound experience, spread over the field, takes the visitor out of daily reality at Ysselsteyn. With this, we create a moment in which the visitor can commemorate, question and reinterpret her relationship with history and more over, think about how to built the future. We extract the landscape from everyday reality by “covering” it with sound. The meaning of Panorama Ysselsteyn arises from a fascinating sound experience that allows the visitor to experience the military cemetery in a different way. With Panorama Ysselsteyn, we invite the public to enter an experience where there is room for their own interpretation in a collective experience.

On 26, 27, 28 March, 30 April, and 1 and 2 May, opera singers perform a wonderful experience theater at Panorama Ysselsteyn. Tickets for these performances are available below and extra interesting in combination with a visit to Overloon War Museum.
