Lysanne van Overbeek

Theatre & Opera Director



Lysanne van Overbeek is a Dutch theatre and Opera Director based in London and Amsterdam. 

Breathing new life into stories and myths, Lysanne seeks to strip these tales back to their essence, in doing so revealing their profound beauty and relevance to audiences of today.

The four singers form an ideal quartet, while their acting performances dovetail
precisely in Van Overbeek's witty conception of a piece that needs a light touch,
but also has some bite to it.

☆ The Stage (La Canterina) 

If Opera's production, directed by Lysanne van Overbeek,

brings the joy and fun of the original Alice story to life.
☆☆☆☆ The Stage (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland)


Carried off with verve here under Lysanne van Overbeek's direction,
this is a production that demands attention for all the right reasons.

☆ The Reviews Hub (I Capuleti e i Montecchi)

An ideal introduction to opera which is almost impossible to get otherwise!
☆ London Theatre1 (Tutankhamun's Shoes)
