"The Night of the Stars", a new danish musical.

Preparations for the world-premiere of a new danish musical have been taking place under the direction of Daniel Bohr for many months. It was STJERNERNES NAT (THE NIGHT OF THE STARS), composed by KIM SØRENSEN and with a libretto by THOMAS HØG and THOMAS MALLING. This production  was to continue the succesful line of danish musical hits which was topped by LYSET OVER SKAGEN, based on the life and work of the famous painter colony in Skagen, in the north of Denmark.

Unluckily, the producing company Nyt Dansk Musikteater had to give up its activities and closed down. Thus, THE NIGHT OF THE STARS has been cancelled.
