Starting at 12:00 am on 14th May OperaDagen presents Threnos (for the Throat) by Carmina Slovenica via ODR TV. Director Karmina Šilec wowed audiences with the impressive choral work Toxic Psalms a few years ago. As fan of the festival she offered Operadagen Rotterdam the chance to host the online world premiere of her new work.
Artistic director Guy Coolen: “It makes us proud that we are given the opportunity to unpack such a magnificent new work at a time of corona. Threnos (for the Throat) is a masterly example of exciting music theatre, brimming with surreal moments, deeply emotive and gripping.”
Please note: the performance will stream 24 hours only
