Dionysos stood out as one of the brilliant highlights of the 2010 Salzburg Festival. Wolfgang Rihm compiled the libretto for this remarkable opera fantasy, in which every word comes from Nietzsche's Dionysos Dithyrambs. The story follows the figure of N. (Johannes Martin Kränzle), a blend and interaction of Dionysos, Marsyas and Nietzsche, an eternal wanderer in search of love, fulfilment and truth. Ingo Metzmacher (musical direction) and Pierre Audi (artistic director) have shaped a breathtaking work of
art, an impressive operatic fantasy made all the more impressive by Jonathan Meese's stage sets. Bettina Ehrhardt leads us along the path from score to premiere in the vivid images and copious interviews of her documentary film Ich bin dein Labyrinth.
