Travelling opera is Holland’s best

December 30, 2015 by norman lebrecht


Readers of Place de l’Opera, the Dutch magazine, have voted for their best show of the year.

To general surprise and delight, it’s a Floris Visser production of Gluck’s Orphée et Eurydice at the breadline-funded Nederlandse Reisopera, a peripatetic company the government sought to abolish three years ago.

Here are the results:

1. Orphée et Eurydice (Nederlandse Reisopera)
2. Lohengrin (Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest)
3. Dialogues des Carmélites (De Nationale Opera)
4. Benvenuto Cellini (De Nationale Opera)
5. Der Rosenkavalier (De Nationale Opera)

    Floris Visser is one of the most gifted régisseurs of today and for that reason an unique figure appearing from the Netherlands.
