Keith spoke about his career, what inspired his production of Richard Wagner’s masterwork and how he tackled such an ambitious project He also spoke about whether there is new hope at the end of the piece or whether it is entirely pessimistic.
“It’s a massive artistic experience that we all have together. I think Wagner’s real religion is art and theatre itself,” Keith told Kasper. “He says, we who’ve experienced this take from it and we go out and change the world or change ourselves.”
