Dag in de Branding Festival. Meriç Artaç's 'The Arrival of Mr. Z.' is an opera inspired by real people she observes on the street, becoming five different musical characters based on these kinds of encounters, who represent deep emotions and the inner processes that result from them. Rudan (baritone), is the sound of depression, Yori (bass clarinet), is the sound of fear, Gece (soprano), is the sound of melancholy, Korke (song and tap dance), is the sound of pride and Zizos (flute), is the sound of protection. They come together in a search for their creator: Mr. Z. Performers:

Funda Müjde, voice (Funda).
Brigitte van Hagen, soprano (Gece).
Jussi Lehtipuu, baritone (Rudan).
Felicia van den End, flute (Zizos).
David Kweksilber, bass clarinet (Yori).
Julia Pallanch, voice and tap dance (Korke).
Robbrecht van Cauwenberghe, bajan.
