Fantastic !

Sunday evening , together with my sister-in-law, I attended your performance at Slot Zuylen. We had no idea what to expect. And what a pleasant surprise it was: a beautiful, intimate production with an enchanting beauty. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Adorazione dei Magi

My profound thanks for and unforgettable experience in Slot Zuylen!
Fantastic that you succeeded, despite the constraints of a museum, in ultimately using the space available. And that the musicians were able to put on a convincing performance even with changing acoustics. We also appreciate that you involved the employees of Slot Zuylen in the production, from the beginning.
Many thanks and I hope we can work again together in the future.

Marian van Dijk,
Director Slot Zuylen

I walked around today with a big smile on my face with the memory of last night's production. It was fantastic in all aspects. Good for the soul and the senses. Thanks again for something so beautiful.

Monday afternoon thank you

I couldn't imagine a nicer Christmas present then the one I received together with many other people: Adorazione dei Magi.
An engaging concept,  which even work by Benjamin Britten woven into it. Outstanding  performers -with an especially good counter-tenor! A sober but effective staging. And a story fit for different audiences of differing denominations. In short: I found it to be impressive, without being too heavy even for a moment.
