About Maulwerker

The Maulwerker ensemble was founded in 1977. In addition to the classics of new (vocal) music and experimental music theater, the Maulwerker repertoire focuses on more recent trends, and therefore on active collaboration with composers, radio dramatists, sound artists and directors, as well as on works created by members of the ensemble itself.

Witte de With & Rotterdam
An on-going public program & a series of collaborations.

Witte de With is dedicated to forging long-standing and flourishing partnerships throughout Rotterdam and to encouraging collaborations to tap into an expanded pool of knowledge and resources. As such, Witte de With has conceived a series of events in collaboration with select cultural and academic institutions in Rotterdam to explore current developments in (and beyond) contemporary art worldwide.

Operadagen Rotterdam There is no information in English available at the moment. Sinds 2001, het jaar dat Rotterdam culturele hoofdstad van Europa was, werken de opera producerende en presenterende instellingen samen. Gezamenlijk maken zij het aanbod en de productie van opera en muziektheater mogelijk, verbeteren dit kwalitatief en stemmen het op elkaar af. Opera Rotterdam* is de naam van dat samenwerkingsverband van acht Rotterdamse kunsteninstellingen dat uiteindelijk Operadagen Rotterdam, een hedendaags opera- en muziektheaterfestival, heeft geïnitieerd. De eerste editie vond plaats in 2005. www.operadagenrotterdam.nl
