In season 2016-2017 I will be working on two new productions for the Dutch National Opera (composing and playing).
The first will be performed by the end of September / beginning of October at the Stedelijk Museum and the Brainwash Festival. It is inspired by the French artist Tinguely. The team working on the production: Marcel Sijm (director), Bram Stadhouders (guitar / composition), me (viola / composition), Jappe Groenendijk (dramaturge) and three opera singers.
The second production is much bigger and will be the youth opera Hondenhartje. Marcel Sijm (director), Florian Magnus Maier and me (composition), Binnenvoet en Henkes (libretto). It will have 7 opera singers and a band of 5 musicians (including Florian and me).
After the summer, Florian and I will start to work on the composition. The first performances will be 13 to 17 May 2017.
