PLEASE NOTE! Change of time.

Muziektheater Transparant's new performance, 'Ruhe', intertwines polyphonic songs by Schubert with gripping stories from the Second World War. These monologues are based upon eye-witness accounts that the Dutch artists Armando and Hans Sleutelaar recorded in the 1960s, taken from people who had voluntarily joined the SS. Ceaselessly haunted by their past, they reveal they can find no respite or harmony. Schubert's song 'Ruhe, schönstes Glück der Erde' not only provided the title but has formed the basis for this new project by the Flemish composer Annelies Van Parys. Unusually, before the auditorium opens, the singers of Collegium Vocale Ghent and the two actors take up their positions in the stalls. The public then sit in the remaining empty places amidst the singers and actors. When everybody is seated the performance begins.
