The Green Hour - Oscar Wilde

Muziektheater - English spoken

Immerse yourself in the story of one of the best-loved writers in the English language!

Simon Mulder and David Kwa will introduce you to the Green Fairy - absinthe -, bring prose, poetry and drama by Oscar Wilde and his contemporaries, and take you on a journey through his rise and fall. The Poetry Bar will serve absinthe accompanied by sonnets by the decadents. 

Daan van de Velde (piano) and Susanne Winkler (soprano) will perform English art songs. And we have the very special performance of a long lost work for piano and voice on Wilde's 'Ballad of Reading Gaol'!
