Taken from yesterday's 'Times' Newspaper... Afetr nearly 30 years composing just 1 opera, the avant Garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, has completed his monumental Licht (light) cycle. He started in 1977. One part was given at Covent Garden in the 1990's to a somewhat confused and bemused audience. The entire work all 29 hours of it :shock: is to be staged at Dresden in 2008. There will be no interval!!!!! :shock: a) It sounds like nobody is gonna understand the thing! b) 29 hours long :shock: Wow! Interesting to see how many go to see that. c) No interval! Better take a cushion i suppose. Thats one hell of an opera!
