Mezzo soprano Karin Strobos has a very busy international career. She frequently performed at the Grachtenfestival and won of the GrachtenfestivalPrijs in 2011. Now she will return with a remarkable program: ‘Die Schöne Magelone’ by Johannes Brahms. She will perform with close friends Thomas Beijer (piano) and actor Sieger Sloot.
It is a musical romance, a kind of mini opera, with spoken and sung lyrics. This story is usually told by an actress, while the vocals are sung by a baritone or tenor. In this unique Grachtenfestival-version a woman will sing and a man will tell the story (in Dutch). Three amazing artists in an extraordinary Dutch premiere.
This year the Meesterlijk! series are more festive than ever. Awardwinners of the GrachtenfestivalPrijs have been asked to create their own program and invite their musical friends.
De serie Meesterlijk! wordt ondersteund door het Kersjes Fonds
