Opera Rooftops

The Operadagen Rotterdam (Rotterdam Opera Days) is a successful festival that takes place annually in May. We feel very close related to the festival, because they also work in surprising locations with a wide variety of partners. Like ours, this year’s programme has been cancelled due to Covig-19. Various productions were already prepared for this edition. Most are shifted to September and next year. But together with Rotterdamse Dakendagen, this spring, the Opera Days give the makers a small, but grand stage on a rooftop!

The performers show small finished parts of their production on a rooftop, and we made beautiful clips of that! Curious what you can expect from the productions?

Below you’ll see Claron McFadden, singing her interpretation of David Bowie’s Heroes on top of Rotterdam Central Station:
