Russia Bans Modernist Production of Tannhauser
Venus & Tannhauser
The Russian Culture Minister has sacked a Siberian opera director for his "modernist" production of Wagner's opera Tannhauser. Apparently, this guy rewrote Wagner and put Christ himself into the decadent Venusburg! This guy should be arrested, not just for blasphemy against the Orthodox Church but for Crimes Against Humanity for this awful Euro-Trash staging of Wagner! Full story from the New York Times.
