Due to limited seating capacity, we kindly ask you to make a reservation here.

Artist and writer Armando (1929) and leading accordionist Oleg Lysenko (1974, Ukraine) are on stage together in the production ‘I heard someone listening’. In this cross-over of literature and music, Armando will read his own poetry and prose (in Dutch), and Oleg will play the bayan (Russian button accordion). The music on the programme is by Victor Vlasov (Gulag Suite), Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky (October from The Seasons, Op.37a), Jerzy Petersburski (Tango), Vittorio Monti (Czardas) and Igor Stravinsky (Tango).

Djangela Mirando, leader of the gypsy ensemble Tata Mirando, is the grandson of the late Josef Weiss (1895-1967), the founder of the famous 'Tata Mirando' gypsy orchestra. Tata Mirando stands for pure gypsy music and creates a specific musical atmosphere with its own distinct style. Armando has often played as a violinist with this orchestra in the past.
