Morten S. Danielsen, composer

About:
Composer Morten Skovgaard Danielsen (1967-2009) died during the completion of the opera Donalds09. The story, for which the author Morten E. Nørskov has written texts, is just as hard to pin down as most other things in the composer's constantly boundary-challenging art. Three people, all called Donald, each with an individual personality - or one person with all three split personalities - live unresolved lives. They meet the waitress Dolly in a universe of soft porn, cocaine and the dead Kurt Cobain, with frequent visits from the world of literature in the figures of Hamlet, Odysseus and James Joyce.
