What’s that? A pink revue? A revue is a program lasting the whole evening. On Saturday, November 2, and Sunday, November 3 2019, Cantus Obliquus is presenting a cheerful, colorful collection of songs and performances during an evening or matinee show.
The theatre will be enveloped in a club-like atmosphere, with the audience relaxing with a drink. A colorful and exciting performance is presented in different ensembles.
Cantus Obliquus is a mixed queer choir based in Nijmegen. It was founded in 1986 with a broad artistic repertoire, in which the love for singing and for each other is key. Cantus Obliquus performs under the enthusiastic and inspiring leadership of conductor Christel Gelderman. Cantus Obliquus has been the oldest queer choir in the Netherlands for thirty-three years now. Cantus Obliquus rehearses weekly at the Babylon, Kwakkenbergweg 150 in Nijmegen.
Cantus Obliquus means “contrary singing.” In the revue, that aspect of the choir becomes apparent by creatively “playing with the content of songs.”
The Saturday evening show starts at 8 p.m., and the Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m. Cantus Obliquus makes use of the Overasselt association building due to its wide range of possibilities. Parking is free, with more than sufficient space.
Nov. 2 & 3, 2019, Overasselt (near Nijmegen). Tickets are available on the Cantus Obliquus website, www.cantusobliquus.nl.
