I am very excited to present a brand new project I am currently working on with violinist Mathieu van Bellen. We are performing Puccini’s La Boheme in it´s full, unbridled glory. Starting in November, we have finally managed to boil the parts of the orchestra, the choir(s) and all the soloists down to a piece for violin and piano. Working only with the intensity of Puccini’s score and projected text, the two of us are bringing the full opera to the stage. The aim is to do this without loosing any of the drama. If we succeed or not remains to be seen, but we truly cannot wait to try this live on an audience.
The show will be premiered at PODIUM Festival Esslingen on the 8th of May.
