Signal at the Rotte – Operadagen Rotterdam
Bergse Plassen / Prinsenmolen
04:30 – 00:00

The fifteenth edition of Operadagen Rotterdam will be held from 21 to 30 May 2020. During the internationally acclaimed opera festival, (new) makers and audience go on an adventure with new forms of opera. The festival takes place in Theater Rotterdam, Nieuwe Luxor and De Doelen, and at unexpected locations in the city.

One of the highlights is “Signaal bij de Rotte” of Strijbos & Van Rijswijk: a fascinating sound translation of the landscape and the surrounding waters, in which the environment and the public are central. During this landscape opera, the audience walks along the Rotte in Prinsenmolenpark: a narrow green strip and a unique urban nature reserve close to Rotte in Hillegersberg. Voices meander over the Rotten land and water. Every spectator experiences his or her own story and is given a stage.

Preparations for this event are in full swing. As soon as more is known, we will post this on our website and via our social media channels.
