Inhalt
Benjamin Britten, sailing uncomfortably close to the wind with his new opera, »Death in Venice«, seeks advice from his former collaborator and friend, W. H. Auden. During this imagined meeting, their first in twenty-five years, they are observed and interrupted by, among others, their future biographer and a young man from the local bus station. Alan Bennett’s new play is as much about the theater as it is about poetry or music. It looks at the unsettling desires of two difficult men, and at the ethics of biography. It reflects on growing old, on creativity and inspiration, and on persisting when all passion’s spent: ultimately, on the habit of art. The play, despite all its sardonic surroundings, touches on broken friendships with the central encounter - Thomas Mann, coming out of the closet, meeting with boys, and the grim necessity of continuing to write.
