Robert Zuidam (1964, the Netherlands) studied composition with Philippe Boesmans and Klaas de Vries at the Conservatory of Rotterdam. The core of Zuidam’s compositional activities lies in the field of vocal music, particularly that of the musictheatre. It was Hans Werner Henze, who made Zuidam aware of his potential as an opera composer. Besides his work as a composer, Zuidam is also active as an essayist on music, a.o. for the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad.
