 With its five acts and nine scenes, Les Troyens is a monumental piece to direct and sing. Pierre Audi's production from 2010 at the Dutch National Opera succeeds in combining spectacular stagecraft with touching storytelling – with Eva-Maria Westbroek singing the key role of Cassandre.  And we return to Amsterdam on 28 June with a stream of their very latest production, Les Contes d’Hoffmann.

Les Troyens
Location:      Dutch National Opera, Amsterdam                  Date:  15 June 2018 at 19:00 CET

After a siege of ten years, the Greeks leave Troy. A giant wooden horse has been left on the beach. Despite Cassandra's dark premonitions, the offering is borne into the city...
Pierre Audi directs Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek and American tenor Bryan Hymel in this epic Berlioz's opera, that requires an omnipresent chorus, a huge orchestra and a great virtuosity from the solists. 
Streamed on OperaVision on 15 June 2018 at 19:00 CET and for one month:

Berlioz had a long-held fascination with the stories of Antiquity. 'I have spent half my life among the demigods; I figure they knew me as much as I know them.' Les Troyens is an extravagant masterpiece that includes marches, fight scenes, one of the most beautiful love duets in opera and a central role for a large chorus.
