The Dutch composer Huba de Graaff has caused furore for years with operas oriented to everyday life but in unexpected ways (her most recent opera, Liebesleid, is now touring fitness centres).
In 2015 she provoked audiences with her Pornopera, for ecstatic actress and two lovely harps. This is arousing music, in the best possible sense of the word (for those who doubt her cultural credentials, the work is based on Ovid). It’s ideal for letting yourself be swept off your feet during the Late Night Concert!
Huba de Graaff
Huba de Graaff is fascinated by these natural concepts of making sound and music.
In Apera she investigated the phenomena ‘singing’ vs speech, which resulted in doing
audio research on singing monkeys.
Her music has never been polished, she is not afraid of new sounds or new ways of presenting music,
both acoustic as well as electronic.
Huba de Graaff has given many concerts and lectures in the Netherlands and abroad.
