In the same way as last year, the European Music Festival for Young People spectacularly opens with a dazzling show by the Flemish theatre-company "Theater Tol" on Friday evening, April 29, 2011, on and around the Neerpelt market-square. They will perform, high up in the sky, the breathtaking Corazon de Angeles, a happy performance featuring angels accompanied by fireworks and percussion.
Nowadays brides in marriage carry a wedding-bouquet. Originally the bouquet used to be composed of herbs that were to ban bad spirits from the marriage; In 'Corazon de Angeles' the bride does not carry the bouquet to ban bad influences, but she is given live angels to preserve the good.
Fireworks by Fireworks-creators Vangelabbeek and percusssion by Lokomotiv will accompany the performance.

- Ensemble Saxofones do Cmc, Coimbra (PT)

From 22h15 the opening show will continu with the Theater Tol performance accompanied by fireworks and percussion.
