Summary

Inspired by Richard Wagner’s 13 operatic masterpieces, Jan Fabre is putting his own shocking spin on the composer’s 200th birthday, documenting the friendship and dramatic feud between Wagner and philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. Racing from humor to horror across the span of Wagner’s works, the piece features extremely graphic imagery and standout vocal performances from tenor Hans Peter Janssens and soprano Lies Vandeweghe. In collaboration with writer Stefan Hertmans and German composer Moritz Eggert, Jan Fabre has constructed a stunning piece of art that is part opera, part theater, and not for the faint of heart.
