The opening of Operadagen Rotterdam's 12th edition is dedicated to Diary of one who disappeared, Czech composer Leoš Janáček's passionate song cycle. It tells the story of a boy who leaves everything behind for a gipsy girl. Will he find the freedom he seeks or forfeit his identity? Janáček wrote the composition after he had met a much younger woman, Kamila, who was to become his big love and muse. Ivo van Hove is the director. The Belgian composer Annelies Van Parys has added new music to the piece.
