Seville also plays a starring role in world literature. It is where the story of Don Quixote was conceptualized, and where Carmen, Don Juan and overzealous barber Figaro enjoyed their operatic adventures. High time to bring all these characters together, thought ĀRT HOUSE 17. In a barbershop in a Parisian suburb, rumours about a lottery win set a crazy series of events in motion. The result: grand arias, emotional rollercoasters, wild dances, and acrobatics of all kinds.

About the performers

ĀRT HOUSE 17 is an ensemble conducted by Michael Hell. Besides using historical instruments, the ensemble considers it important to do justice to the broader context in which the music was performed. The central question here is: what does the music have to say today? ĀRT HOUSE 17 has been a guest at the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht several times in recent years with their music theatre performances such as Kaffeekantate and The Crocodile Bar. The ensemble also created the Utrechter Passion during Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht 2022.
