Groots en meeslepend: Eric de Kuyper over opera, muziek en film

The theatricality and staging of opera and the musical accompaniment to theatrical and cinematic performances are major themes in the work of  Eric de Kuyper. Eye curator Mark-Paul Meyer talks to him about opera, music and films in the light of film adaptations of classic operas  (Aida, Eika Katappa) and De Kuyper’s own work (Enfant prodigue, Casta Diva).
