The Jan Brandts Buys Festival 2018 opens on Friday 21 september and lasts until Sunday 23 September. The festival opens on Friday 21 September with a performance of the short opera Micarême in Dat Bolwerck (with o.a. tenor of the Flemish Oper House Denzil Delaere, soprano Jolien De Gendt, baritone Hans de Vries, pianists René Rakier and Pieter Dhoore and a girls choir assembled by the Muzenhof. Micarême is a mesmerizing, magial-realistic waltz opera in one act about a jester, Prince Carneval, who on the eve of Micarême tries to seduce a young woman in her sleep. To achive his aim he asks the Amorettes, young maidens, to bring his delightful love song into her ears, from hwere it must find its way to her heart. The purpose: to get her to give him the key of her door, after which they will be united forever.

The work opens the festival and is the main piece on our Jan Brandts Buys promotional cd, with apart from Micarême also a survey of the rest of the festival: songs, arias, and pinao compositions.
