Preview Dutch Court Operas from The Hague 1751-1793

670KHLBefore the pauze the talent-ensemble of the Haagse Muziek Academie with sopranos Esmée van Nieuwenhuijzen and Gina de Jong will bring a preview of the scores that we rediscovered in the Dutch Royal Collections  of scores by Dutch opera composers from Mozart's time. Apart from Colizzi and baron Gottfried van Swieten we will also present the Mozart concert aria ‘Conservati Fedele’. composed during his stay in The Hague in 1765, when he was only 9 years old.  A highlight will be an  arrangement of Colizzi’s air ‘Ah! Quoi Bonheur, ah! Quoi plaisir!’ from Les Dieux au Village arranged for electric guitar and accordeon, with baritone Hans de Vries!

Preview Heroïsche Nederlandse opera's

After the intermission the DUtch late romantic period will come to pass with the mesmerizing closing duet from Jan van Gilse’s Helga von Stavern (1911), sung by soprano Barbara Schilstra and baritone Hans de Vries. 401DutchOperas aims to later eprform a substantial selection from this masterpiece by Jan van Gilse, which antedates Tijl(1940) by nealy 30 years.
