Sein eighty.

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.
