Theta Role Question

From:Carsten Becker <carbeck@...>

I've got a question regarding the roles in this

  Music is his passion.

How should this construction be analyzed? I would translate
this sentence as

  Tingrāng dikunang  iyaena.
  Music.A  passion.A 3s.m.GEN

Into Ayeri, although I do not feel well with marking both
NPs as Agents. Actually, I think, there is no agent, and
both nouns should be best left unmarked, but that seems odd
as well.
