Trailer of Operetta Land by Steef de Jong & Paulien Cornelisse | Dutch National Opera

Operetta Land doesn’t exist. It’s an imaginary place, with imaginary people, who have imaginary adventures and burst into song at every turn. And yet, once you have set foot in Operetta Land, you’ll never want to leave. Come see for yourself if you don’t believe us…
