Tannhäuser opera is on trial
According to the information provided by the Russian TASS News Agency, the staging of Tannhäuser, one of the immortal works of Richard Wagner, which was released for the first time last December, caused various discussions throughout the country. Orthodox church officials took action with the staging of the game. Plaintiff Novosibirsk Chief Pastor said, "The lawsuit was filed against the use of the cross and the fact that Jesus was in the limbs of Venus damaged the religious feelings. In the defense of director Timofej Kuljabi" Jesus, not Jesus, is forgiving. Theater should not surrender to births. The game is a reflection of the culture of dialogue. "The delegation advised Kuljabi to 'consider religious feelings' in the games while he did not impose any prison sentence.
While the trial continued, the issue sparked several discussions across the country. The Russian Ministry of Culture said in a statement last week that they wanted the opera administration to apologize to the Orthodox public and to change places that reacted. Meanwhile, he announced that the financial budget of the theater budget will be examined.
Reactions began to rise. Novosibirsk Intellectuals Union pointed out that freedom of art is under pressure and threat. In the statement made by the Union, the following views were given: "In today's Russia, the situation of the artists who had been subjected to censorship and censorship three centuries ago has been evacuated. Our city is the scene of the polarizing and hostile initiatives of radical Orthodox. "The use of choreographers, music, symbols that are not 700-800 years ago is now part of the scene. We see this case as an obstacle to the freedom of expression under Constitutional rights and freedom."
On the other hand, President of Russian Association of Theater Artists Aleksandr Kaljagin said, "We do not want to return to the times when censorship is decisive. Even filing a lawsuit against an artwork is an alarm situation in itself. Art will resist the pressure of a small group." said.
After these developments, the famous Bolshoi Theater was engaged. Theater Director Wladimir Urin supported the director by saying "We want to work with young director Timofej Kuljabin. We want to show that play next season".
Stating that the pressures towards art have increased from time to time in various countries, Dramaturg Haluk Işık stated that they follow the developments in Moscow and said: “We are in a country where heavy pressures against art are experienced. Sometimes similar problems are experienced in different geographies such as the developments in Russia. The problem is looking at life, the world and people. He does not see the problem science and art as the journey of liberation of mind, a more livable world is possible, the effort of his poetry, a journey that will transform life into a more humane, through an intellectual and aesthetic filter. Science and art continue and continue this journey against those who try to prevent and destroy at every opportunity, although humanity has benefited from the results it has achieved since its inception to the end. Thinking and wanting beyond is nothing but ignoring people and their minds. But man and his mind are the biggest truth in the world. The problem will disappear as this fact is known and perceived. Hope and solution are again in science and art. "
W.A.Mozart, F.Schubert, F.Liszt and R. Wagner are among the musicians influenced by the French Revolution in the field of music. Wagner's most striking feature was that he opposed order, aristocratic order in his operas and intellectual writings, according to post-revolutionary writers and musicians. For the first time, he became immortal in his opera works with the concept of 'unified work of art' (Gesammtkunstwerk), where he combines drama, poetry, painting and music. L. A. Feuerbach, A. Schopenhauer, P. J. Proudhon, F. Nietzsche, K. Influenced by Marx, he focused on state structure, society and religion. In the works of Fairies, Love Ban, Rienzi, Flying Dutchman, and Tannhäuser, love and romance are handled socially, culturally and religiously. Love and romance cease to belong only to the world in which they live, the heroes capture happiness only after death.
The Tannhäuser opera, inspired by the German medieval legends Tannhäuser and the Wartburg Castle Music Contest, consists of three sections. In the work that examines the question of whether it is earthly or love of god, it deals with the emotional tides of Tannhäuser between Elisabeth and Venus, the goddess of love. The acceptance of love as a sin tells of Tannhäuser being punished and going to the pope to ask forgiveness and forgiveness after he died. In this work, Richard deals with the contradictions of Christianity in interpreting sexuality and love.
