The performers of Een oog in zee (An eye in sea) gave a foretaste of the music theater piece that will premiere in autumn 2022. Een oog in zee is a modern adaption of Ariadne’s Greek tragedy, performed by a mezzo-soprano, accordion, horn and a dancer. Salomé Roodenburg wrote the libretto and composer Willem Boogman is currently working on the composition.

After experimenting with the first two scenes, they were performed at Factor IJ, where Salomé Roodenburg’s exhibition became the setting for the story!

Klassieke Zaken, May 2021

‘A beautiful arrangement, magnificently performed by Helena van Heel together with this ensemble.’
