Milan de Korte, Levy Pletting en Fika Kwintet - Idomeneo - Koning van Kreta

A compelling story of love, sacrifice and divine retribution in Splendor. This musical retelling of the opera 'Idomeneo' offers a refreshing and contemporary performance of one of Mozart's great classics. The story is inspired by Frank Groothof's adaptation and will be performed by the Fika Quintet in combination with narrator and tenor Milan de Korte and soprano Levy Pletting.

Idomeneo - King of Crete

The Fika Quintet takes on a dynamic role by supporting the story on stage in a musical and visual manner. In collaboration with Milan and Levy, the boundaries between classical music, opera and musical theater are broken through.

"Poseidon! The God of the sea. The god of ebb and flow, of shipwreck. The god of vomiting on the deck. The god of mist over the water. The god of the rollmops, the bucking, the whale, the whiting, the plaice, the schools of herring, the churches full of crying fisherwomen. Poseidon! The god of the sea. What had King Idomeneo promised him, out there at sea? The first person I meet on land dies. That's how kings are. Always sacrificial. They do a lot for their country; money, blood, tears, life. Especially that of others."
