Carmen – The Hopelezz Edition IJ-Salon

‘I want Carmen to be performed at my gravesite,’ composer Henriëtte Bosmans wrote. In this IJ-Salon, the musicians of the IJ-Salon and the drag queens of House of Hopelezz and House of Løstbois fulfil her wish and pay tribute to one of the most extraordinary Dutch musicians of the 20th century in the Muziekegebouw on 9 March. Bosmans identified herself with the fearless heroine of Bizet’s opera, who didn’t care about conventions and remained true to herself until her death.

House on Hopelezz

Michael Gieler, artistic director of IJ-Salon: ‘The decision to invite House of Hopelezz for this extravagant tribute came about entirely organically. Since their creation by drag queen Jennifer Hopelezz, these performers have been the epitome of the cheerful and engaged exuberance of Amsterdam’s LGBTQIA+ community. It will be an unforgettable afternoon, without doubt.’
