THE DAY AFTER
an opera with circus on Ford Rijnauwen
In ‘The Day After’ the young Phaëton embarks on a search for his father, and loses himself in the role of reckless adolescent who thinks himself a god. A story about ambitions, insecurity, desire, bluff and decline. In a walk towards the fortress the audience visited three locations on the fortress, where they were treated with a circus act as a taste for the opera.
