In A Day in June - a song cycle in 5 portraits a traveller is, just before leaving for a new journey, first travelling into his inner world. Trying to find his dream, he's being confronted with an illusion.


A Day in June (2018) is a new short film opera filmed by Peter Sieben, with music composed by Marion von Tilzer, based on a libretto of Gerard Harleman and that includes painted portraits by visual artist Ludo Winkelman. The project has been inspired by a poem by the Portugese writer/poet Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935), that is also included in the music and the film.

The film is produced by MuziCan Foundation and Orphic Film in The Netherlands and is available for international festival screening from 2019. More information: info@orphicfilm.nl | contact info.
