Paul Binnerts frequently collaborates with composers, who write new music for his productions, mainly performed ‘live’ by professional musicians. He calls it ‘theater-with-music’. Only in a few instances it is pure ‘music-theater’, as in the opera St. Louis Blues.

The composers:

  • Louis Andriessen in The Measures Taken by Bertolt Brecht, and The Comedy about the Servant of Two Masters, based on Goldoni’s play.
  • Heiner Goebbels in Brecht’s The Exception and the Rule, and St. Joan of the Stockyards.
  • Gilius van Bergeyk in Hungeryear (1566).
  • Alfred Harth in Brecht’s The Breadshop.
  • Jean Lambrechts in Brecht’s Fear and Misery in the Third Reich, Mnouchkine’s Mephisto (1), Euripides’ Of Trojan Women and Büchner’s Leonce and Lena.
  • Annemarie Roelofs in Drei Frauen/Three Women and Flametti.
  • Hay Beurskens in Brecht’s Drums in the Night.
  • Christoph Anders in Chronicle of a Death Foretold, based on the novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and in Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
  • Vera Vingerhoedts in Kassandra, based on the novel by Christa Wolf.
  • Paul Lansky in The Same Sea, based on the novel by Amos Oz.
  • Thies Streifinger in Allein das Meer/The Same Sea, based on the novel by Amos Oz.
  • Chiel Meijering for his opera St. Louis Blues. (YouTube) Double cd published by Donemus 1995
