Schubert Dinner

Schubert in Scheveningen

Schubert Dinner

Schubert in Scheveningen was a musical theatrical peak of last Festival Classique. This autumn the production returns in an exceptional form: as a dinner performance. A musical and culinary experience of fish, seamen, pure beauty and love at first sight. Do not miss it, there are only five shows!

For years OPERA2DAY has wanted to play in the characteristic Visafslag (Fish Auction), one of the best kept secrets of Scheveningen harbour. Each day freshly caught fish is landed here and sold at the auction. Not without reason the location was recently submitted to become a national monument. Last June Festival Classique gave OPERA2DAY the opportunity of realising its wish. Against this unique background Schubert’s melancholic music was brought to life in the presence of an enthusiastic audience.

The Visafslag is not only a refreshing location for musical theatre. For some time now it has been a popular place for a pop-up diner entitled Zeevlam (Sea Fog), which were a pleasant surprise to the culinary world. The chefs and OPERA2DAY have joined forces and want to merge the world of the sailors, the sound of Schubert and amazing fish dishes together into one overwhelming experience.

Schubert in Scheveningen tells a story based on Schubert’s music, which often focussed on fishermen and their melancholic loves. At sea, far from their darlings for a long time, you can almost hear them say the words he set to music: “my heart is just like the sea, having storms and ebb and flow”. Baritone Florian Just and accordionist Marieke Hopman perform Schubert’s everlasting beautiful music together with the Eliot Quartet and a vocal ensemble.

The show is co-produced with Festival Classique and Zeevlam.

STORY

Fishermen are singing drinking songs on their way to the fish auction canteen. When a fisherman’s daughter walks past, one of the fishermen immediately falls in love, but he loses sight of her. The fisherman navigates between hope and despair. Then, inevitably, fate strikes: he sails away to sea, his heart aching.

The venue for the dinner show is the Visafslag, Visafslagweg 1, 2583 DM Scheveningen. Parking facilities are nearby and ample; however, on a nice day it is best to arrive early.

We regret that the Visafslag building is not accessible to wheelchairs as there are stairs to climb to the entrance and there is no lift.
