Alumni of NKK NXT, the trainee programme of the Netherlands Chamber Choir, are joining forces with singers of the Netherlands Chamber Choir itself in a brand new world premiere! The talented composer Mathilde Wantenaar was commissioned by SNAAR Festival to create a new mini-opera for chamber choir: Dear professor Einstein. Wantenaar drew inspiration from the written correspondence between children and one of the greatest scientists ever: Albert Einstein. Einstein believed that he was looking for answers to questions people stop asking themselves as they grow older – disarming and direct questions about the most basic aspects of our lives which adults take mostly for granted. Dear professor Einstein is an hommage to curiosity and the sheer coincidence which plays a role in everybody’s lives.
