Giovanna d’Arco by Saskia Boddeke nominated by International Opera Awards /February 9, 2017 by Luperpedia Foundation
Giovanna d’Arco by Saskia Boddeke
Saskia Boddeke has been nominated as a finalist for her production of Verdi’s Giovanna d’Arco in the 2016 Verdi Festival of Parma, Italy. This award presented by the International Opera Awards Committee is considered to be the most prestigious award in the opera world. Her performance of the two-hour opera of the story of Joan of Arc, revitalizing the traditional opera languages with modern technology and the digital visual revolution was presented in the huge baroque wooden theatre built for the Farnese family in 1618. It offers a drama of late mediaeval religious persecution made relevant to today’s suffering from religious intolerance and fanaticism.

Eisenstein in Guanajuato Dutch Television February 17 /February 8, 2017 by Luperpedia Foundation
Eisenstein in Guanajuato by Peter Greenaway
In 1931, the great Russian Soviet film-maker, Sergei Eisenstein, travelled to Mexico to make a film to be called “Que Viva Mexico”. Staying for ten days in the Mexican town of Guanajuato ostensibly to visit its famous Museum of the Dead, he falls in love with his Mexican guide, Palomino Canedo, and, paraphrasing the Jack Reed sentence about the St Petersburg Russian Revolution being “Ten Days that Shook the World”, for Eisenstein, the time he spent in Guanajuato were “Ten Days That Shook Eisenstein”. Here are those ten days in a film written and directed by Peter Greenaway, premiered in competition at the Berlin Film Festival.
Nightwatching by Peter Greenaway /October 28, 2016 by Luperpedia Foundation
Release in Italy
There is evidence in Rembrandt’s celebrated painting of the Nightwatch to suppose that it might be a painted record of a shooting, a murder in fact. You can see the rifle being fired before your very eyes. This film, written and directed by Peter Greenaway, and premiered in competition at the Venice Film Festival, examines the murder from Rembrandt’s point of view, amassing the evidence, looking for the motive, identifying the killers, pointing the finger, uncovering in fact a conspiracy to murder way back in 1642.
