Bluebards Castle sold out
3 augustus 2022
Friday evening, the Muziekzomer Gelderland started with the festive opening. This was not only the starting signal for the festival, but also for the summer projects of the NJO: the NJO Brahmsnonet played their program for the first time during the opening.
Besides during the opening, the ten members of the NJO Brahmsnonet gave concerts in Ede, Empe and Nunspeet in the past days. The Brahmsnonet, coached by cellist Joachim Eijlander, can be heard one more time on 6 August with a sold-out concert at Landgoed de Wildenborch in Vorden.

The performances of the family show HET KANSRIJK also started last weekend: the free performance about inequality of opportunity will be performed two more times at Castle Rosendael on Sunday 14 August. A wonderful location for this colorful and humorous performance!
On August 2, Bluebeard's Castle, Bartók's opera with the NJO Opera Orchestra conducted by Antony Hermus, premiered. An impressive and blood-curdling performance in a sold-out Milk Factory, which did not go unnoticed by the Dutch newspapers!

|report in Trouw: "Bluebeard's castle is a dilapidated milk factory in Arnhem"
"Deep humanity at the opera 'Blauwbaards Burcht' in the old Milk Factory (★★★★)"
|Report in De Gelderlander: "Its gruesome appearance makes it perfect location"
The 4 remaining performances of Bluebeard's Castle are also completely sold out.
