Opera spectacle on the Wad

A unique location for a crushing opera: behind the dike at Paesens-Moddergat (Fryslân) the moving story of fisherman Peter Grimes is played. The opera show shows the cramped and sometimes cramped life in a small fishing community.

With beautiful visual music by composer Benjamin Britten, conductor Arnaud Oosterbaan and director Paul Carr take you to a small, self-struggling community. You may never get this chance to experience an opera with 150 extras, actors, musicians and singers on stage with the Wad as background! The opera will premiere on September 18, 2020.
