Oorkaan Radio Plays

After the successful launch of the radio play Romeo and Juliet, the radio plays Black Monster with Tobias Borsboom, Warrior’s Son with the Cello Octet Amsterdam, Night Butterfly with the Dudok Quartet Amsterdam and Mister Sax with the Ebonit Saxophone Quartet are now also available online.

Sanne Schuhmacher wrote short stories in which word and music alternate as narrators, with voice-actors Jouman Fattal, Steven Stavast, Gustav Borreman and Maartje van de Wetering.

Starting in 2017 Oorkaan developed various radio plays in addition to her theatrical concerts, to stimulate the imagination and develop the ability to listen. Precisely at a time when attending live concerts is not a given, Oorkaan offers a unique online listening experience, in which the whole family can enjoy the most beautiful sounds of a.o. Tchaikovsky, Bach, Bartók, Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy, Ravel, Rossini, Mendelssohn and Telemann.

The radio plays are available online, separately or as a bundle.

For the further development and distribution of Oorkaan’s radio plays, Oorkaan is on the look-out for interesting partners to collaborate with in ‘21. Are you actively involved in the field of radio plays, whether through distribution, radio-shows, podcasts and/or a production company with voice-actors? Then we might just be interested in you!

Mister Sax

Mr. Sax has lived on a very ordinary square all his life. A new girl next door disturbs the tranquillity of old Mister Sax.
