In 2012 the Opera Carmen, a French Opera from the 19th Century by Georges Bizet, was performed on the occasion of the 170th anniversary celebrations of TU Delft and the 9th anniversary of the Krashna Musika, the student orchestra group of TU Delft.


As cultural professor and opera director Floris Visser introduced the world of theatre to the engineers at the TU Delft.

While the main tenors and mezzo-sopranos were professionals, many of the other singers where students of TU Delft and from the Academy of Vocal Arts. The orchestra, composed of students from Krashna Musika, was led by Daan Admiraal.

At the Library Floris Visser and Rector Luyben had dinner in the Treasury Room. After that the movie ‘Deus ex Machina’ was shown and discussed. See more photos on Flickr.
