Das Gesamtkunstwerk Oper, das mit Rhythmen und kruden Geschichten, mit Klangaphrodisiaka und Bilderfluten auf ihr wehrlos williges Publikum einstürmt, entzieht sich in seiner kruden Bündelung von Bewegung, Bild, Text und Klang ganz bewusst der sonst allenthalben geforderten rationalen Durchdringung der Welt: Wer etwas in der Oper versteht, versteht gar nichts. [G] The art of opera as a whole, which bombards its defencelessly willing audience with rhythms and crude stories, with sound aphrodisiacs and floods of images, quite deliberately uses its crude bundling of movement, image, text and sound to elude rational penetration of the world, which is otherwise required in every aspect of life: anyone who understands anything in opera understands nothing at all.
