| ||Film: Rafiki|
In this candy-coloured and dynamic lesbian romance, Kena and Ziki must navigate their blossoming relationship within their narrow-minded Kenyan hometown.
‘Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives’, but Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist and remain close friends, supporting each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety.

| ||Film: Rocketman|
Taron Egerton is Elton John in Rocketman, an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of the extravagant pop icon’s breakthrough years.
Director Dexter Fletcher – who stepped in to direct BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY after Bryan Singer was fired by producer Fox – calls his film ‘a musical fantasy’. It is the story of a small town boy who became a world star. The lead role is played by Taron Egerton, who sings Elton John’s classic hits himself.

| ||Music: Martin fröst conducts philharmonie zuidnederland|
The New York Times wrote in admiration of Swedish clarinet player and conductor Martin Fröst. He raised clarinet virtuosity to an unparalleled level and knows how to combine his excellence with conducting an orchestra. He conducts the South Netherlands Philharmonic and brings with him his own arrangements of Telemann and Vivaldi, is the stellar soloist in Weber’s First Clarinet Concerto, and tops it all off with Beethoven. It’s already a memorable concert.

| ||Music: Opera Zuid - Fantasio|
This comic opera by Jacques Offenbach bubbles like a glass of champagne, featuring infectious music, hilarious personal exchanges, jokes and grolls unique to this French master. The young student Fantasio hopes to conquer the heart of the Bavarian princess Elsbeth and pretends to be her deceased court jester. The arranged marriage with the Prince of Mantua, which must restore peace, is abruptly cancelled when Fantasio deliberately ridicules the bridegroom in public. After a series of complications and confusions, love prevails and peace can be sealed - even without marriage. Opera Zuid performs this unknown musical masterpiece by Offenbach.

| ||Music: La Galanía – The Spanish Golden Age|
In soprano Raquel Andueza, a world star returns to the Netherlands. Her warm but transparent voice, astonishing colour palette and radiant stage presence have earned her many loyal fans. Accompanied by an instrumental duo, this time she navigates through the best of what the era of Sebastián Durón - one of the figureheads of the Spanish Golden Age - had to offer in sacred music. These folias, zarabandas, morenas and gitanas are perfectly suited to her voice but also for the ultimate Spanish instrument: the guitar.

| ||Lecture: Debatcentrum Sphinx: Young. Stressed. Depressed. Burned Out|
According to the media, mental health issues are becoming increasingly common among students and young professionals. They cite the competitive job market, demanding careers, social media use and rising expectations of ourselves and others. Solutions however focus on the individual level. Mindfulness and therapies offer tools to manage a stressful life but fail to address the social circumstances that make life difficult in the first place. How can we develop a broader view of mental health issues among young people? For this round table conversation, students, young professionals, employers and mental health professionals are invited to share their insights. Moderator Rudy van Beurden will lead the conversation.
Wednesday 29 May | 7.30 p.m. | Debatcentrum Sphinx
