Can a murderer make beautiful art? Should we know what politicians do in the bedroom? Are our private and work lives separate? This morning is about the fate of public figures who misbehave. The lecture by Claartje Wesselink is connected to the production of Gesualdo by theatre company De Warme Winkel and Nederlands Kamerkoor. This composer was a brilliant musician who murdered his wife and her lover. What effect does this atrocious deed have on our appreciation of his work?
