About Us

Since the start, Silbersee has been profiling itself as an innovative production house for unorthodox opera and music theatre, suited for a wide audience. With the human voice in all its unique aspects in mind, Silbersee commits to still undiscovered forms and surprising collaborations with widely varying genres and disciplines.

Throughout 2017-2019, Silbersee premiered 21 (co)productions and 9 reprises, totalling 384 shows. For our warmly received Aardappelvreters (The Potato Hoggers), we attracted more than 9.000 people, and for De Toverfluit (The Magic Flute), in collaboration with De Toneelmakerij, more than 17.000 came to visit. Silbersee operates both nationally and internationally, attending places like the Ruhrtriënnale in Germany, Oerol on Terschelling (NL), and Internationaal Theater in Amsterdam.
