The opera After Life, following its successful revival by De Nederlandse Opera in the fall of 2009, will be staged at Opera de Lyon on 18, 20 and 21 March 2010. The same excellent cast will return, accompanied by the ASKO|Schoenberg Ensemble and conductor Otto Tausk.
These performances are part of the Biennale Musiques en Scène 2010 Lyon. Van der Aa’s chamber music works Just Before, Memo, Oog and Passage are also included in the biennale’s program.

The Barbican Centre in London will present a semi-staged performance of After Life during its ‘Present Voices’ series on 15 May 2010.
