ESN goes to the Opera

20th May 2023 @ 8:00 pm 11:00 pm

Join us for an unforgettable night with David Lang’s “prisoner of the state”

🗓️20.05.2023 8pm
📍 De Doelen, Schouwburgplein 50

Prisoner of the State tells the story of a woman who disguises herself as a prison guard to rescue her husband from unjust political imprisonment, with a libretto by the composer that refers self-consciously to Beethoven’s Fidelio.
Pulitzer Prize winning American composer David Lang was inspired to write the piece by what he felt to be the unrealized potential in Fidelio’s narrative.

Performed exclusively in Rotterdam, it is a dark and futuristic rendition of Beethoven’s opera, uniting the narrative and the ideas into the inseparable whole of its performance.

🎟️ We have limited tickets for a special discount: €8 with an ESNcard (or €10 without) [tickets are normally €15 – 35!!]
