OPERA2DAY and the Netherlands Bach Society took up the challenge to make de opera die Bach nooit schreef (the opera that Bach never wrote).
They tell the story of Jan van Leyden. He founded a utopia that resulted in a dictatorship, with Jan as a flamboyant and ruthless king. Bach's overwhelming and emotional music brings this timeless story of radicalization to life. With compelling stage direction, an excellent cast, and a choir and orchestra from the Netherlands Bach Society, we hear and see Bach's music like never before.
