My Magnum Opus #1: The Lionhead Ring
By Michael Moriarty
Wagner in Hell.
That is where it all begins.
Here is where and when my music for The Lionhead Ring can first be found.
It is the Concert Overture for Wagner in Hell.
There are instrumental excerpts in it from my entire first opera.
What had begun as a simple, perhaps four opera indictment of Richard Wagner and his increasingly legendary anti-Semitism?
A pilgrimage of 10 portraits about most of my life and all of the important corners of my thought.
My office wall of photographs!
Including, one complete villain, Richard Wagner!
Plus, one ideological puppet of theatrical genius for Communism, Bertolt Brecht.
What is a drama without a villain like Wagner and a diabolically intelligent fool such as Bertolt Brecht?!
What would Life be without them?!
However, both Communism and the inheritor of both Wagnerian and Nazi anti-Semitism, Islam, are destined to move to other planets than Earth!
I, unfortunately, will not be alive to experience the divinely sane and impressively ancient Greco-Judeo-Christian human race that will entirely inherit this planet.
Their ownership of Mother Earth, however, is inevitable!
