Song of the dark forest is a moving, compelling and comforting performance, performed by the full Scapino group of dancers, an opera singer and live music by the DoelenEnsemble. It sings the tragic song of war. An unknown soldier, hovering between life and death, longs to return to his loved ones but is also haunted by memories of the battlefield. With poignant songs and dance by four choreographers, this timeless story comes to life.

Musically, a leading role is given to the work of Dmitri Shostakovich. In times of war and oppression, his music was a source of hope and comfort for many. Songs by composers such as Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky and Rachmaninov will also be heard, revealing an unmistakable pacifist message and a melancholic longing for better times. It concludes with Sergei Akhunov's recent 'Prayer for Peace'. That title is a true motto for the entire performance.

In 2019/2020, Scapino Ballet Rotterdam successfully collaborated for the first time with the high-profile OPERA2DAY in the production Opera Melancholica, starring dancer Ellen Landa. Artistic director Ed Wubbe then invited director Serge van Veggel to create a production with four top choreographic talents and Rotterdam's leading DoelenEnsemble.

Maaspoort

The Maas is an inspiration, a lover that flows through the heart of Venlo. Just as the Maaspoort is also the beating heart of the city. The Maas is lively, beautiful, energetic and on the move. The gate stands for the explorer. The guide. This one is always open to something new. Something challenging with a hint of rebel. This one leads you to new inspiration, (dis)excitement and enjoyment.
