LOD is looking for singers for a music theatre production

21 May 2015

LOD is looking for singers for the new LOD production The insurrection of the body by Vasco Mendonça (composer), Kris Verdonck (director) & Dimitri Verhulst (libretto).

For this musical-theatre production about Hieronymus Bosch, Verhulst wrote the libretto The insurrection of the body. It is not a libretto in the classic sence of the word – a play to be sung, with characters and dialogues. His text is much more a detailed lyrical meditation on the concept of sin, with the central question of whether in 2015 we should actually use and accept such a concept. As in his novels, the notion of sin, punishment and rebellion are major themes in the libretto. 

LOD is looking for a soprano, countertenor, tenor and bariton.
