A collaboration between the Voice and Early Music departments has proven a fruitful endeavour! With the guidance of the famous British countertenor Michael Chance, students of both departments performed Francesco Cavalli's opera 'Il Giasone'.

Giasone was one of the most popular operas in the 17th century. Despite having only five days to rehearse the piece, 17 soloists, a choir and an orchestra were able to put on a fully staged version. The opera took place on 2nd February at the Kees van Barenzaal, with the help and support of the hall's technical team. 

The performance was well-attended and warmly received. A shorter version was later performed at the British ambassador's residence, in front of an audience of important diplomats and business leaders.
