Deine Winterreise


M31 Foundation & OPERA2DAY present Franz Schubert ‘s song cycle Winterreise as a video-opera walk through The Hague. Along the route there are QR codes with which the visitor can open a film clip on his own smartphone with a song from the cycle, performed by baritone Martijn Cornet and pianist Shuann Chai. Each song becomes an audiovisual poem that enters into a dialogue with the streets, squares and parks of the city. In the songs, a young man tries to regain his balance on foot after a lonely time of distance and alienation. The visitor of Deine Winterreise literally walks with him, experiences the comfort of unforgettable music and may – just like the singer – at the end of the journey, let go of the inner winter and dream of a new beginning.
