Unusual venue 2014/15: The Dutch company Opera Zuid will present three performances of Philip Glass' Akhnaten at a full size (260m x 60m x 24m) replica of the Temple of Luxor in the Netherlands.  The Luxor aan der Maas will be constructed in bamboo on the banks of the Maas near Nijmegen, by teams of volunteers as a community art-project.  For those people who don't speak metric, a football pitch has been provided (bottom left of the picture).
