Mehr als four hundred Jahre ist die Oper nun alt, und wenn sie bis heute immer noch jung geblieben ist, dann liegt das an Künstlern wie Nikolaus Harnoncourt und seinem unermüdlichen Bemühen um die Erneuerung der Kunst und unseres Verständnisses von Kunst. Sein eighty. Geburtstag ist eine gute Gelegenheit, seinen Weg durch die bunte Welt der Oper zu verfolgen und an zahlreichen Beispielen, von Monteverdis "L'Orfeo" über Mozarts "Figaro" bis zu Strawinskis "The Rake's Progress", zu erfahren, wie lebendig Oper sein kann.
Oper ist ein Theater für alle Sinne, kein verstaubtes Relikt der Vergangenheit, keine leere culture und schon gar keine Spielwiese für elitäre Eitelkeiten. textual content, Musik, Schauspiel und das Bild der Bühnenwelt verschmelzen in der Oper zu einem einzigartigen Kosmos, in dem sich die menschliche Natur spiegelt. Und darum ist Oper letztlich eine Notwendigkeit, wie jede Kunst. Das beweist Nikolaus Harnoncourt von Mal zu Mal, mit Leidenschaft, Intelligenz und Überzeugung. Dieses Buch legt dafür ein spannendes Zeugnis ab.
