My “Tristan und Isolde”, opened TWENT YYEARS ago TODAY in Weimar , with Hans Aschenbach in the title role.

Today, Hans Aschenbach, a friend of mine from New York – Dorota Czerner – pleasantly surprised me by telling me that she had watched an entire tape of our production of Tristan und Isolde (Deutsches National Theater – Weimar),which opened TWENTY YEARS ago, TODAY! Yes, twenty years ago, Hans ! This is the version she watched – and a version I had never seen before. It obviously brought tears to my eyes.

The only version I knew (before the above was brought to my attention) was the one below, from a German TV News Station)

Meet Farouque Abdela, a most wonderful man, artist from Zanzibar.

I’ve been totally inspired by him and his life story and, of course a few email exchanges. This man exhales inspiration. And in the world today, this is a rare treat.

Elke Maravilha, I had the enormous privilege of working with you and learning from your vibrancy ! R.I.P. my dearest friend.

ELKE TWOElke Maravilha – tive a honra de fazer um espetáculo pra ela: chamava LUARTROVADO, uma espécie de “happening” que fiz, baseado na ópera de Arnold Schõnberg (Pierrot Lunaire), graças a um convite de Danilo Miranda e Ricardo Fernandes. A Elke brincava muito e, como sempre, falavamos em alemão (ela falava todas as linguas. No video também, Fabiana Gugli.
Participaram muitas muitas muitas pessoas. A lista é enorme.
Vá em paz Elke. R.I.P meu amor.
