The ECHO-Opera is a location opera that uses it’s stage, Fort Rijnauwen in Utrecht, as an instrument and an antagonist.
The opera tells a modern retelling of the Greek tragedy of Echo & Narcissus and asks one of the big questions of our modern society; What is real?
The ECHO-Opera is created in cooperation with the Gaudeamus Muziekweek. It premiered as a support of Holland Opera on the 15th, 16th, 17th, 22nd and 30th June 2017.
