Deine Winterreise (Embassy of Switzerland)
May 25 - June 30Free
The Swiss Embassy to the Netherlands is happy to highlight an initiative that will keep your minds busy end bring you out of your homes.
M31 Foundation and Opera2Day present a special musical journey during which you will be able to let go of your feelings of isolation caused by Corona, and focus on a new cultural beginning.
The gripping song cycle Winterreise by Franz Schubert takes on a new, appealing form as a video opera walk through The Hague. Along the route you will find a QR code at successive locations with which you can open a film clip on your own smartphone with a song from the cycle, performed by Martijn Cornet and Shuann Chai. Each song becomes an audiovisual poem that engages in a dialogue with the city’s streets, squares and parks.
In the songs, a nameless young man tries to find his balance while walking after a lonely time of distance and alienation, in which the environment always reflects his state of mind. You literally walk with him. An engaging experience, which offers to each hiker the comfort of an unforgettable music.
