Michio’s Music at Three Different Theatres at the Same Time

I am honoured that this weekend music composed by me will be heard in three different city/state theatres in Germany.

Firstly at the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, my composition for BATS, the current production of the Sebastian Weber Dance Company, and secondly at the Theater Osnabrück, my composition for ZEIT, the current production of the Dance Company Osnabrück under dance director/choreographer Marguertite Donlon and at the Theater Stralsund my music for OTHELLO for the Ballett Vorpommern under Ralf Dörnen.

Thank you for your trust in my music and toi toi to all involved!
