In the Netherlands, this unique collaboration between International Theater Amster­dam and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra will be performed exclusively at Theater Carré.

In Death in Venice, writer Gus­tav von Aschenbach falls in love with young Tadzio. His fascination is so severe, he underestimates the danger of the cholera epidemic in the city. His intense and uncontrollable infatuation leads to his mental and physical downfall.

For this musical theatre production the text of Thomas Mann’s novella is adapted by Ramsey Nasr. Nasr portrays an author who is going through a crisis. Secluded in his workroom, he creates a counterpart of himself: Von Aschenbach, the man he cannot or dares not be in his personal life.

New music is composed specially by Nico Muhly (1981). This shooting star of American music works with both classical artists and in the world of pop music. He composed three operas and wrote film scores (e.g. for The Reader). Additionally, the performance will include music from Thomas Mann’s era.

All performances have English subtitles.

Ticketsale starts Tuesday, May 15th at 09:00 AM.
