The musicologist David Vergauwen sets Der Rosenkavalier in the context of Strauss’ opera oeuvre and explains the reason behind this nostalgic look back at his own past. The dramaturge Piet De Volder zooms in on the score and spotlights certain scenes and characters using short audiovisual extracts. To crown it all there’s an insight into the new production of Christoph Waltz.
There is a lot to be said, learnt and discovered about each of the operas. Which is why the dramaturgy department is organising a number of day courses in close cooperation with Amarant vzw that explore specific operas in greater depth. Various experts in the fields of opera, musicology, history and literature are invited to share with you their views on the opera.
Please note: these courses are only in Dutch.
Tickets from € 21.00 to € 24.50
