Description

"The Last Friend of Napoleon" is based on a true episode in Dutch history. When Napoleon was defeated in October 1813 after his unsuccessful Russian campaign, the French withdrew from the Netherlands. At the beginning of 1814 the whole country was liberated, with the exception of the city of Delfzijl, which was still held by French troops. This programmatic work deals with political and military stubbornness, with the pursuit of dreams, and with the fact that love always goes its own way.
