Brodeck

Brodeck, my third opera, after the novel “Le rapport de Brodeck” by French author Philippe Claudel, in collaboration with stage director Fabrice Murigia, received a highly acclaimed première at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen on February 9th 2024.

“A virtuoso jumbling of past and present” (cuttingedge)

“Janssens’ brand-new music is always atmospheric and consistently of a high level. The way Murgia manages to guide you through the flashbacks and forwards without leaving you hopelessly lost deserves equal praise. (…) With Brodeck, not only an opera was created but also a timeless statement that transcends the artistic realm.” (De Standaard).

“Das Hauptverdienst von Janssens und Murgia besteht darin, über die Dauer von deutlich mehr als zwei Stunden Spieldauer einen nicht nachlassenden Spannungsbogen hergestellt zu haben (…)” (Opernblog WDR)
