The Flying Dutchman, Madama Butterfly and the Diva from Sunset Boulevard travel to the Dutch Opera in Venlo. The theaters in Krefeld and Mönchengladbach are expecting a lot of this.

(RP) After the successful guest performance with the “Little Opera Gala” in the past season, the soloists and the opera choir of the Theaters Krefeld and Mönchengladbach are now traveling to Venlo again and presenting a colorful one on Saturday, October 15th, 8.15 p.m. in the Theater De Maaspoort Opera cocktail with highlights from the diverse repertoire of the current theater season.

The program includes excerpts from the opera classics “The Flying Dutchman”, “Madama Butterfly” and “Rigoletto” and songs from the musicals “Cabaret” and “Sunset Boulevard”. Johannes Schwärsky, Sophie Witte, Eva Maria Günschmann, Gabriela Kuhn, Woongyi Lee and Rafael Bruck can be seen as music theater soloists. Also present are the newcomers from the Niederrhein Opera Studio, Indre Pelakauskaite, Kejti Karaj, Miha Brkinjač and Jakob Kleinschroth, and their colleague from the Junges Theater with a focus on musicals, Sjörd Knoll. The musical direction of the concert, which will be accompanied on the grand piano by Bonnie Wagner and Joaquim Font Plans, is in the hands of Kapellmeister Sebastian Engel.

Opera director Andreas Wendholz says: “We hope that with this program we can inspire the audience in Venlo for music theater on the Lower Rhine and, if possible, encourage them to visit us in Krefeld or Mönchengladbach. In the recent past, a very positive cultural exchange has developed between Theater De Maaspoort and our theater, including organized visits to events in the respective houses. We want to expand this cooperation even further in the future.”
