A Brief Draft of Human Desires – Chamber Concert with OBV

  • 27/06/2023
  • Jannah Van Nevel

This week the current generation of IOA students are performing their last project together: ‘ a Brief Draft of Human Desires’.

Director Maëlle Dequiedt leads our students through a programm centered around the theme DESIRE. Desire might be strange, but it is at the core of our being. Desire makes us richer than actually owning the object of our desire, which remains deceitful. Drawing near like a spectre, desire changes our being too. And yet: if we do not act on our desire, we start growing pustules… Indeed, desire is strange.

With arias & songs about the eternal desire from Purcell, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Britten and Judith Weir.

Tickets for the performances in Ghent(28/06) and Antwerp (30/06) can be bought via this link:
