Maurice van Loon (*1969, The Netherlands), is a composer who writes for all for all kinds of classical ensembles, choirs, soloists and electronics. His music can be described as direct and clear but with a sense of drama.
The opera is based on characters from the book Keefman of poet and writer Jan Arends (1925-1974). The libretto is written by Cefas van Rossem. Jan Arends was a difficult person to understand and his 'madness' became fatal.
