Novembernacht (2018)
Composition and production

Scenario: Lyzette Havinga
Lyrics: Petra Visser
Compositions: Gijs van Winkelhof

On November 3rd 2018 the musical Novembernacht opened. The musical tells the story of Laila and Samir; two Syrian children who have fled from their country as a result of the war. The children build a new life in the Netherlands and when they reach an age when important choices have to be made, their search for themselves and each other begins. During the story the contrast between our Western problems and the war children is highlighted. Novembernacht is produced by the Dutch Junior Musical Academy.
Gijs van Winkelhof: “Composing the music for this musical has been an incredible experience. One of the challenges was to study traditional Syrian music. It resulted in a show with many different music styles, but my biggest mission for the music was to move the audience in some way.”

In February 2019 the cd of Novernacht – De Musical was released. The cast recording is also available on Spotify and iTunes.
