Pretentious, moi? That’ll be the new Munich regimemain
The Bavarian State Opera, under Serge Dorny’s new management, has posted this statement of intent:
“Every person is a masterpiece. In their eyes the sorrow and the yearning to be loved. In their heart experiences and memories, as in yours. And on their head the skullcap, like a royal crown.
Each of us a king.”
In this way, the Bavarian State Opera challenges the view of the other, of what’s special outside of the norm, and sees diversity as a strength of our society. “It is the special, the highest good. A society must celebrate its differences, otherwise it doesn’t exist. Every person is king or queen,” says Serge Dorny.
