Serge van Veggel

General Director / Artistic Director

Serge van Veggel is one of the founders of OPERA2DAY. In recent years he has developed a series of very diverse performances as artistic director and stage director. He often adopts a conceptual approach, creating new works from existing repertoire. This was the case, for example, with La troupe d'Orphée based on the repertoire of Charpentier, Dolhuys Kermis with baroque lamenti, Dr. Miracles last illusion with (late) romantic repertoire, Vivaldi - Dangerous Liaisons and J.S. Bach - The Apocalyps with baroque repertoire, and Opera Melancholica, with music by Philip Glass. He has a preference for merging opera with - sometimes unexpected - genres such as textual theatre, dance, cinematography, illusionism and puppetry, and for performing at extraordinary locations. He has also directed titles from the repertoire such as The Fairy Queen, La Giuditta (Alessandro Scarlatti), Médée (Cherubini), Hamlet (Thomas) and Carmina Burana (Orff), mostly with innovative conceptual approaches. He made the scenarios and libretto for Mariken in de tuin der lusten, with music by Calliope Tsoupaki. He has also created music-theater performances and staged recitals both within OPERA2DAY and other companies.
