Libretto: Anne Vegter

An original production through the interwovenness of Turkish and Dutch culture and an exciting collaboration between Dutch and Turkish professionals and amateurs. The opera tells the story of a woman and a man who marry against the will of their families. Their love is tested to the limit. But then the events take an unexpected turn; after years they magically get a child … The story was edited by composer Seung-Ah Oh and writer Anne Vegter to surprisingly contemporary music theater.
