The successful opera After Life, following its sold-out performances at the 2006 Holland Festival, will be staged in Amsterdam, London and Lyon in the 2009/2010 season.
In Amsterdam, De Nederlandse Opera presents the newly revised version in Het Muziektheater in September/October 2009, with the premiere on 28 September. The DNO production will be staged additionally at Opera de Lyon in March 2010 (three performances beginning on 18 March). The Barbican Centre in London will present a semi-staged performance during its ‘Present Voices’ series on 15 May 2010.
This revival gives Van der Aa the opportunity to polish the score and to adjust the staging for touring. The same excellent cast will return, accompanied by the Asko/Schoenberg Ensemble and conductor Otto Tausk.
