De frivole framboos
Frambozen (Raspberries) improve with age, becoming purer and fuller in flavour, as demonstrated by Peter Hens and Bart van Caeneghem in their dazzling performance entitled ‘Troppo Maturo’.
Loosely translated, the title means ‘too mature’, but those who have seen the show performed by the ‘Frivole Framboos’ (Frivolous Raspberry), would agree that ‘fully grown’ or ‘ripened’ is a much more fitting description. For even after 39 years in the limelight, this raspberry retains its freshness and continues to be fruitfully, wittily, and virtuosically entertaining.
'Troppo Maturo' is a playful and lively performance that features two tenors, a cello, a grand piano, a crate full of Beethoven, Hazes, Mozart, humour, Liszt, and deceit. It is a show that exudes merriment, frivolity, and the sweetness of raspberries.
