Daggers of the Mind: What are you prepared to do for fame?

The film Daggers of the Mind will have its online premiere on 19 June. This music theatre film, inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth, is about the fear of failure. This group production is part of the graduation process of fourth-year Music Theatre students at Codarts Rotterdam. Initially, the stage production’s premiere was scheduled for 21 April at the Maaspodium in Rotterdam. However, since all theatres are closed, an alternative platform had to be found for this project. For many weeks, students rehearsed from home for a real music theatre film and all recordings are now finished.
