An adventurous musical theatre performance for children and young people ages 9 and up.
This new musical theatre production by Opera Vlaanderen for kids explores questions about rage, fear and resentment. Where do the roots of evil come from? What does it mean to take revenge? How can I contend with the world outside that is often dark and unfair?
With elements from Shakespeare's masterful play and Verdi's musical masterpiece, theatre artist Tom Goossens and composer Mathias Coppens create a radical adaptation for children ages 9 and up. Their work is based on classical musical structures, rooted in a theatrical language taken from opera. A female vocalist plays the role of Lady Macbeth, and an actor plays Macbeth. The Opera Vlaanderen Children's Chorus will perform all other roles. BANKET! promises to be a spine tingling musical theatre experience!
