Cut Nyak Dien was Erros’ debut as a movie director and the film became a legend in its time. A live scoring music for a film is not a new thing in Indonesia. A similar performance was held previously by composer Pierre Osser and Batavia Madrigal Singers at the Jakarta Theatre to accompany a 1930s film entitled Nosferatu.
