Lots of good and important things happening across the arts spectrum this month. For those of us who enjoy English language theatre October will be a very satisfying month. STET, the English Theatre in The Hague presents NIGHTS at the National Theatre’s Zaal 3 and the Queen’s English Theatre Company in Amsterdam present their gay version of THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ERNEST at the beginning of November.
Opera lovers are well catered for too with a semi-staged presentation of DON GIOVANNI by Orkest van de Achttiende Eeuw (Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century) and soloists from Amsterdam Cappella, under the baton of Kenneth Montgomery at De Doelen in Rotterdam on 7th and at other venues throughout the month. Nederlandse Reisopera’s latest offering, THE BARBER OF SEVILLE, is also on tour in our area.
