Het Boompje (4+)
Sun 7 Mar ’2115:00 uursmall hall
Het Boompje has been based on an old poem by Friedrich Rückert: Vom Bäumlein, das andere Blätter hat gewollt (1813), and the picture book inspired by it and known by almost any toddler: Het Boompje by Loek Koopmas (editior Christofoor, 2008). Utrecht poet and librettist Ruben van Gogh arranged it for the Alle hoeken van de Kamermuziek ensemble making this timeless story into a contemporary, poetic and funny version for the smallest opera lovers. Bastiaan Woltjer added atmospheric and rebellious music which makes the passing of the seasons audible. His music also proves that opera can actually swing!
