text „Nimmermehr!“ Der sprechende, stets verneinende Rabe aus Edgar Allan Poes berĂŒhmtem Gedicht ist eines der stĂ€rksten und faszinierendsten Symbole fĂŒr Melancholie und Hoffnungslosigkeit.
Der amerikanische Weltliterat setzte sich in seinen Werken wie kein anderer mit den dunkelsten Ängsten und AlbtrĂ€umen der Menschheit auseinander. Ausgehend von Poes Gedichten und Kurzgeschichten erkundet Tarek Assam dessen einmaligen Blick auf die Welt: dĂŒster und traurig – doch von einem unerklĂ€rlichen Zauber durchdrungen. Bereits zum vierten Mal wird er dabei von BĂŒhnenbildner Fred Pommerehn und KostĂŒmbildnerin Gabriele Kortmann unterstĂŒtzt. Die eigens fĂŒr diesen Abend komponierte Musik des renommierten Komponisten Moritz Eggert wird live unter der musikalischen Leitung von Michael Hofstetter vom Philharmonischen Orchester Gießen prĂ€sentiert.

  Stage Works - Dance theatre

  Wagner versus Nietzsche: a fatal friendship

In 2013, it will be 200 years since Richard Wagner was born: an ideal time to turn the spotlight on this legendary composer. The Flanders Opera invited Jan Fabre to make a musical theatre creation on the subject of Wagner, who is one of his favourite artistic figures. He was inspired by Wagner's 13 operas and the fascinating but tragic association between Wagner and Nietzsche, which ended in a feud. In collaboration with the writer and Nietzsche expert Stefan Hertmans and the German composer Moritz Eggert, the result is an exciting new work of theatre.

Coproductio,: Troubleyn/Jan Fabre, Concertgebouw Brugge, Théâtre de la Ville Paris, Opéra de Lille, Wagner Genèva Festival & Holland Festival.
