We all spy on the neighbours from time to time. When we do so, do we see the truth – or is that ‘truth’ coloured by our own perspectives? Should we ever intervene? Are we complicit in what we see? A cry in the night, a vanished neighbour: will shared fear draw us out of our isolation?For her first opera Private View, composer Annelies Van Parys chose to take as her starting point Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller “Rear Window”, about a murder in a block of flats. Her collaboration with the librettist Jen Hadfield, scenarist Gaea Schoeters and director Tom Creed led to the creation of a pioneering opera that won several awards. Having premiered six years ago at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen, this Thriller opera is revisited in a new production of Muziektheater Transparant, SPECTRA and the young artists of the International Opera Academy.

5/03/21, Antwerp (BEL), De Singel

Iets meer dan 25 jaar geleden maken Alain Platel, drijfveer van les ballets C de la B, en Dick van der Harst, medeoprichter van LOD muziektheater, de legendarische voorstelling ‘La Tristeza Complice’. Samen grasduinen ze in het werk van Henry Purcell (1659-1695) en selecteren ze op een ‘brutale’ manier enkel wat hen direct behaagt, opvalt en aanspreekt als popmuziek voor een muziektheatervoorstelling. 

Speciaal voor deSingel OnLive en Podium19 kan je het muzikale luik van deze legendarische voorstelling, die op zo goed als alle continenten te zien was, (her)ontdekken. Van der Harst selecteert gretig uit Purcells vocale en instrumentale oeuvre, dat hij arrangeert en waaraan hij vreemde lementen en weerbarstige ritmes toevoegt. Een onvergetelijke cocktail van Purcells
barokmuziek, door een tienkoppig accordeonorkest (bestaande uit muzikanten uit de oorspronkelijke bezetting en studenten) onder leiding van Gwen Cresens en sopraan Lieselot De Wilde.

muzikale leiding: Gwen Cresens, compositie: Dick Van der Harst naar Henry Purcell. sopraanLieselot De Wilde, accordeonorkest: Gwen Cresens, Elke De Meester, Louis De Backere, Sara Salverius, Luca Pignata, Issa Hellebaut, Ward Ginneberge, Barbara Ardenois, Ivan Smeulders, Lowie Vercammen, productie: LOD muziektheater, les ballets C de la B
