For coffee:

Today is World Opera Day. This is not without coincidence, because October 25 is also the birthday of composers Georges Bizet and Johann Strauss. They are no longer with us, but according to opera singer Tania Kross, they will always live. “The only form of immortality is composition. As a result, your soul will live on,” she says.

Tania sings a part of a beautiful song about Curaçao. Unfortunately, there has been no theatre here for 20 years due to a hurricane, water damage and a fire. Tania has seen with her own eyes that there are many talented people living on the island, but because the theatre has been destroyed, they have no place to express that. “It's like when you don't have a church or a temple to function in” Tania will therefore be committed to rebuilding the theatre.
