OPERA: VIVA Les Outlaws! by music, theatre and design students of the Arts Faculty Maastricht
Director: Dominik Wilgenbus / Conductor: Libia Hernandez / with the cooperation of the Maastricht University Choir
Jacques Offenbach was a brilliant theatre composer who aimed to entertain a wide audience. In his work, he mixes song with dialogue, drama and dance, setting the bar high for the players.
In the woods, the robbers lie in wait...
Offenbach's 'outlaws' look like an anarchic gang of pillagers and thieves, but in their own wilderness, they form a familial group who set great store by friendship and loyalty. The real threat is posed by the corrupt authorities - in the year 1878, or?
Cacophony of languages
Just like Offenbach's gang, the students participating in this production have various nationalities. They each sing in their own mother tongue, with English surtitles: modern times!
Libia Hernandez, conductor: ‘I hope the audience will leave the theater feeling that they have participated in a transformative event, and I expect people will be talking about our “Outlaws” for a very long time to come….’
VIVA Les Outlaws! is organized by Conservatorium Maastricht in cooperation with: Toneelacademie Maastricht, Toneelgroep Maastricht, University Maastricht Choir, Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Municipality of Maastricht, Opera Zuid & Theater aan het Vrijthof.
