Opera of the month

GOVERT BIDLOO/VONDEL: FAËTON (1685) • 26 APRIL, DEN HAAG

401LIedschoolFrontpageBannerFaetonVondel was the most famous Dutch playwright of the 17th Century. Yet by 1663 Amsterdam City Theatre director Jan Vos thought his work outdated and he refused to mount Vondel's Faëton. it was finally performed there posthumously in 1685, when new director Govert Bidloo gave it disguised as an... opera! To pull this off he had personally added an hour of text and anonymously composed music to the play, turning it into a Lully-like opera. The five authentic dances and arias preserved in the Nederlands Muziek instituut have been made perfromance ready by Andy Clark for our 26 April 2020 concert 'From Vondel 1685 to the Dutch French Era 1812'. Camerata Delft is our chamber ensemble. Vocalists are Denzil Delaere (Spring), Gina de Jong (Summer), Sarah Konig (Autumn) and Hans Voschezang (Winter).

26 april 2020, Oud-Katholieke Parochiekerk, Juffrouw Idastraat 7, Den Haag.

342 years of Dutch operas

342JaarOf the more than 400 operas composed in The Netherlands in the span of 342 years, not a single one has managed to enter even the local repertoire. Among those forgotten operas are the first Dutch baroque operas, mostly in the French style of Lully's Versailles, opéra comiques after Grétry, grand opéras after Auber and Meyerbeer, along with full blooded romantic operas in the style of Verdi or Wagner.
