TRAGEDY OF A FRIENDSHIP NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: November 1, 2013
Did He Like It?*
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.
