In Autumn 2023 the Dutch National Touring Opera will be presenting a new, scaled-down production of Korngold’s opera Das Wunder der Heliane. This jewel of the dramatic opera repertoire has never before been staged in Holland and this new version is in fact a world première! Consensus Vocalis, a professional vocal ensemble based in Enschede (NL), has been invited to provide a ‘Korngold’-chorus of 40-48 singers to sing this beautiful and demanding score. Interested in joining the choir? Come audition!

Béni Csillag

Béni Csillag is artistic director and choirmaster of Consensus Vocalis. Béni: ‘From our first collaboration I feel a genuine connection with this great ensemble. For me, the chorus is defined by the intensity and clarity of the choral sound – by the humanity that it expresses. I feel at home in that and it gives me a wonderful foundation to build on, both musically and in the artistic choices we make together for now and the future.
