BOOM! Amsterdam is een opera

Boom_AmsterdamBOOM! Amsterdam is een opera

From October 2013 until February 2014 De NederlandseOpera presents BOOM! Amsterdam is een opera, challenging everybody to think about the future of the earth and its natural environment. At surprising locations throughout Amsterdam you can hear compelling recitations and unique musical works – often specially composed for this project: from one-minute operas with Amsterdam trees as a backdrop to melodramas in The Amsterdam Music Theatre and from choral works on IJburg to short, personal operas in Bos en Lommer.
