TEMPUS FUGIT / FUTUR PROCHE is Now Playing at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen

De Belgische topchoreograaf Jan Martens is de komende seizoenen associate artist van Opera Ballet Vlaanderen. In FUTUR PROCHE bouwt hij met vijftien van onze dansers, twee kinderen en klaveciniste Goska Isphording aan een voorstelling over de nakende toekomst. Na twee eerdere succesproducties rond klavecimbelmuziek vindt Martens opnieuw inspiratie in verrassend, hedendaags repertoire voor het eeuwenoude instrument. Gewapend met dit symbool van de menselijke heruitvinding zoekt hij naar alternatieven voor alomtegenwoordige, duistere toekomstbeelden.

Na een première op de Cour d'honneur van het prestigieuze Festival d'Avignon en alvorens te vertrekken op een internationale tournee, presenteren wij FUTUR PROCHE samen met Tempus Fugit van Johan Inger. Deze Zweedse choreograaf blies onze dansers en toeschouwers eerder al van hun sokken met B.R.I.S.A. Nu keert hij terug met Tempus Fugit: een indringende, gedanste verkenning van het rouwproces en de slijtende tijd op de hoopgevende klaviermuziek van Johann Sebastian Bach.




FAUST is Now Playing at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen Photo
Faust is a disenchanted scholar, fruitlessly seeking the deepest truth. In exchange for his soul, the devil promises him a life of pleasure, culminating in one perfectly happy moment. Performances run 28 October - 14 May 2023.

MAHLER 4 Comes to Opera Ballet Vlaanderen in May Photo
Mahlers Vierde Symfonie voert ons van prille levenservaring helemaal terug naar de oorspronkelijke, kinderlijke onschuld. 'Rendering' is, in de eigen woorden van Berio, een ‘recompositie’ van schetsen en ontwerpen voor het werk dat Franz Schubert bij zijn dood als torso naliet.

ERNANI Closes This Weekend at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen Photo
The rarely performed Ernani is often referred to as Giuseppe Verdi's first masterpiece. The grand master of Italian Romanticism no longer opted for a predominantly political approach, but brought the individual to the fore. Verdi found the ideal raw material in Victor Hugo's play Hernani, ou l'Honneur Castillan, one of the key works of French Romanticism in which the emphasis came to lie on raw and realistic emotions.

Faust is a disenchanted scholar, fruitlessly seeking the deepest truth. In exchange for his soul, the devil promises him a life of pleasure, culminating in one perfectly happy moment. This unlikely duo is driven by recognizable desires with a dark shadow: from tragic love to blind progress. Finally, redemption awaits, but the road there is a rollercoaster of striving, falling, and getting back up again and again. Faust, that's us.
