The prodigious actor Jeroen Willems died today in rehearsal of a heart attack. He was just 50 years old.
Among his many and versatile roles, Jeroen performed in Louis Andriessen’s La Commedia in Carnegie Hall.
He was a popular performer of Jacques Brel songs in Dutch. In this royal jubilee performance in April 2005, he made a celebrated appearance with Angela Gheorghiu, who sang first in French, then in Dutch. (Watch from 3:00)
