Light - Stockhausen's Legacy

Oeke Hoogendijk

Light recreates Stockhausen’s musical universe through the making of the megalomanic opera Aus Licht, against the backdrop of his dramatic life story.

Brilliant. Megalomaniac. Unstageable – some words to describe the opera cycle Licht, the most radical project in the history of music theatre, written by the legendary and controversial composer Karlheinz Stockhausen. The Dutch National Opera and Holland Festival staged Licht in 2019. Oeke Hoogendijk documented the path to this frenzied opera spectacle. The film recreates Stockhausen’s musical universe through the making of the opera, against the backdrop of his dramatic life story.
