Muziektheater Transparant
By Leoš Janáček
Directed by Ivo van Hove

BAM Members (Level 3 and above) and BAM Patrons are invited to a working dress rehearsal for Diary of One Who Disappeared. In 1917, Czech composer Leoš Janáček became obsessed with a married woman 40 years his junior. In the throes of despair, he penned more than 700 love letters and a haunting 22-part song cycle called Diary of One Who Disappeared, about a village boy who falls in love with a Romany girl.

Join us for this insider sneak peek before the show opens. Capacity is subject to availability on a first-come, first-served basis. RSVP is required. Please note: This is a working rehearsal, so there may be starts and stops as the performers work to finalize the production. Dates, times, and artists are subject to change.
