Interview: Three questions for Eszter Gyüdi

Why are you studying opera?

I am interested in many genres of music and theatre, but opera is the one in which I wanted to deepen my knowledge the most. Over time, the world of opera became more and more important to me. I like singing and acting. I like complex tasks on stage and I love romantic stories! 

What was your first encounter with opera?

I can't remember my first opera. My father is a conductor, so I was still very young when I first came into contact with opera. I remember my very first and favourite opera film, it was "Don Giovanni" directed by Joseph Losey. José van Dam's performance had such a profound effect on me that Leporello was my dream role for a long time. 

Which is your favourite opera and why? 

There are enduring favourite operas that sometimes find me again, and then I admire them again and am happy. I can't name a single opera, because that would attack the other great works. I like Don Giovanni, Aida, Gianni Schicchi, Gounod's Faust, Pelléas et Mélisande … and many more.
