Opera in the Garden at Museum Van LoonConcerts / Amsterdam
August 20-24 2014, 5pm & 7.30pm daily
Each summer, the organisers at the Museum Van Loon put their beautiful garden to use by hosting a series of operas!
Nestled in the back of the historic house on the Keizersgracht, the garden's stoop is transformed into a stage as visitors sit among the lush greenery to enjoy various works played out at the unconventional location.
In co-ordination with the Grachtenfestival, these exciting operas take place twice daily and are about 45 minutes long.
Along with the performance, visitors can stroll the gardens while enjoying a drink, recreating a bit of that Golden Age decadence!
This year's opera is Vom Fischer und seiner Frau by Swiss composer Othmar Schoeck (1886-1957). Based on a fairy-tale by the Brothers Grimm, it tells the story of a fisherman who catches a fish that grants his wife wishes.
With her material desires unleashed, the question arises as to what will truly satisfy her.
