Opera of the month

401COncerts10-LOGO-ROVAART-frontpage150MC van de Rovaart: Liefde (1895)

In Liefde (Love) Marinus Cornelis van de Rovaart proves himself to be a composer of cery tuneful music with influences of folk song, operette and opéra comique. In the song from Love, 'Hoort een krijger staat voor de deur' (Hear this warrior, he stands before the door), a soldier asks a girl if he can come in, since he has to go to war and is not sure if he will come back. This lovely aria will be performed at 401Concerts 10, together with an excerpt from Van de Rovaart's opera Der verwunschene Prinz. Soloists are Heldentenor Hendrik Vonk, soprano Barbara Schilstra and pianist Wolter Willemsen
