Today, Het Zwanenmeer will premiere with Dutch National Ballet and will play until June. If you go you can come across my boxes in the foyer (shop). Of course with Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.
I searched for suitable city wood and suddenly discovered the perfect plank: IEP from the CZAAR PETERSTRAAT named after Peter the Great who came there during the VOC!
It is the best Elm Street in Amsterdam: The Elm Capital of the World! (did you know that?), there are elms everywhere, you can find them along all canals (such as the top photo with an elm on the Amstel in front of the Opera & Ballet building), and in May they will treat the city to white spring snow; Whirling elm seeds everywhere and they envelop the city in a sweet scent! It has even been made into a perfume: Eau d'Amsterdam, I use it daily, so if you think what do I smell? Then you know it now ..
Do you also want a box like that? They are for sale in the foyer during shows, or in these webshop on order.
