In Memoriam: Sir Charles Mackerras

With great admiration for his music making and truly grateful for his support, we are saddened by the news of Sir Charles’ passing. We will remember his legacy with honour. In music, there is never silence.

Martin Georgiev & Marike van Aerde


The Mirror is a one act opera composed by internationally awarded Bulgarian-British

composer Martin Georgiev, with an original libretto by Dutch author

Marike van Aerde.

The opera explores a triangle of Life, Death and Humanity, and tells as many

stories as there are people in its audience. It reflects the source of human

fear by means of its consequences; our doubts and inabilities, but also our reason

and our determination. Although at places dark and threatening in tone,

the piece ultimately presents itself as a reconfirmation of human identity.
