'a Ira Moed' - Roger's opera in Holland Print E-mail
Written by Matt

Ca Ira MoedSince our last story about the second staging of Roger Waters' opera 'Ça Ira' in Holland, plans have moved apace as the concert gets nearer. Some of you will recall that in 2008, there was a special performance of Ça Ira with Roger's full blessing. The event took place on Dutch Liberation Day, and was a very special, full-scale staging of the opera in the largest concert hall in Holland, with all proceeds from the event going to the War Child charity.

Ca Ira MoedWith the tragic and brutal death last year of the 14-year-old son of André Post, one of the soloists in "Ça Ira for Warchild", the organiser of the original show, Joke Tuinema, decided to bring Ça Ira back to the stage again. This time not for the benefit of War Child, but for the 'Moed' campaign [see]. Moed means "courage", and the campaign takes a stand against senseless violence against others.

The Dutch press has recently been full of articles and interviews regarding the show - not least as it has been announced that Queen Beatrix, head of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, will be attending the concert! An example article is shown to the right (click the thumbnail to see it in more detail; written in Dutch).

Tickets are naturally selling well for the show, which takes place on November 17th, 2010, at the Nieuwe Luxor Theater in Rotterdam. You can get tickets direct from the venue as well as other normal outlets.

Many more details of the Foundation Ça Ira Moed, and the concert, are on
