A Rock Opera for Kika
The Hague rock band PBII and the Hofstad Youth Orchestra conducted by Marcel Geraeds released with this Rock Opera the CD “1000Wishes” and the accompanying book “Eric en het land of a thousand wishes ”(Ronald van der Pol) to the theatre. This musical spectacle was a clash of rock , classical and opera. Framed with, ballet, stage and animation (Mannes van der Burg and Maartje Mast). All this wrapped in a beautiful decor with beautiful light images and an impressive sound reproduction (DaCapo). The story was told by 9-year-old Eric, who bravely battles cancer. The arrangements have been made by Marco C. de Bruin, arranger of, among others, the Metropole Orchestra. The script and direction were in the hands of Elma ten Boekel and Marianne Kuijper together forming the theater collective blondeBizon.
Starring Frits Lambrechts (Grandpa), David van Alten (Eric) and Pieter van Dijk (Sander).

Rien Schimmel Kika

“Why we participate in this project has to do with the creativity of the initiative. If you see that these “old rockers” are so socially committed and combine that with children on a completely different level in the classical style, then that is on the one hand unique and on the other hand fun and has it for us a great appearance! ”
