Malpertuis Neighbourhood Opera

Director Sybrand van der Werf
Musical direction Orkest Morgenstond

INFO

Opera Zuid collaborates with enthusiastic and passionate local residents in a new project: Buurtopera Malpertuis (Malpertuis Neighbourhood Opera).

Times are challenging for getting projects off the ground, so we are very proud to announce the first Buurtopera Malpertuis (BOM) on 16 December. There was no large choir, huge orchestra and gigantic sets, just a petite corona-proof version at Opera Zuid: the mini-BOM.

The unique BOM project combines performing arts and well-being. Together with local residents, Opera Zuid portrays the stories of residents in Maastricht’s Malpertuis district, home to Opera Zuid’s studio. Director Sybrand van der Werf creates a ‘mosaic performance’ from personal anecdotes. A poem about missing a leg, the neighbourhood’s historical peculiarities (the meaning behind the district’s different coloured roof tiles) and more feature in the performance. With Orkest Morgenstond (specialised in neighbourhood projects), children, local residents, opera singers and young musicians from the Maastricht Academy of Music, a poetic encounter with Malpertuis is created that will hopefully make you long for more.

You can register to attend a free performance at our studio on Malpertuisplein 60 on 16 December at either 14:00, 16:00 or 20:00. To reserve a spot, call 0629482288 (available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 11:00 and 3:00 pm). The current coronavirus measures mean only a few places are available, so don’t forget to book in time! First come, first served. Or you can leave a note in our letterbox with your name, telephone number, letting us know with how many people and when you want to watch the neighbourhood opera.

This project is a collaboration between Buurtnetwerk Malpertuis, Orkest Morgenstond, Trajekt and Opera Zuid. And is made possible in part by Fonds Cultuur Participatie and the Municipality of Maastricht.
