Gerard Mortier and opera, dramaturgy of a passion

Gerard Mortier in conversation with Antonio San José

Gerard Mortier’s fascination for the opera began as an 11 year old with a visit to see The Magic Flute, and the passion has remained with him ever since, for that reason he has chosen to reflect on dramaturgy created with passion. His proposals to improve society? Recover spirituality, above all amongst the youth; emphasise the importance of re-learning how to communicate with each other, and, remembering Goethe, he concludes by advocating a society that is truly active in dealing with the problems that affect it.
