Is he for real?
Just a short Wagner quote from the Times article on producing Tristan (despite the cynicism of this blog's title I actually think it is a rather beautiful sentiment).
“I am afraid the opera will be banned,” he continued, “unless a poor performance turns it all into a joke. Only mediocre performances can save me! Really good ones would drive people mad.”
