In TRANSLAB, Muziektheater Transparant opens its doors to young makers of music theatre and offers them support, training and opportunities for creation, all based at our Matterhorn workspace.
In this way we make a long-term commitment to a new generation of performing artists and put them in touch with inspiring artists who act as their coach.
