Things to do
Liebeskrank / Rotterdamse Schouwburg
Mechanical Duck is a collaboration of four openminded and adventurous musicians. Blom (Sax), Oosterbeek (Hammond organ) and Schlarmann (drums) have joined forces with operasinger Charles Hens as they reinterpret all songs of Schubert’s Die Schöne Müllerin.
Daral Shaga / Rotterdamse Schouwburg
Daral Shaga is collaboration between director Fabrice Murgia, composer Kris Defoort, and Feria Musica about the inhuman fate of (many) refugees. Acrobats, musicians and singers put the audience in touch with a modern tale about migration. Beautiful images, French spoken with Dutch surtitles.
Poetry International Festival / Rotterdamse Schouwburg
Poetry International is a festival for poetry from all over the world. The voices of the poets reading their work, the beauty of language and the encounters between the many different languages provide a rich diversity of poetry.
