It may be known in Europe, but it's news to me that Robert Wilson will
be in charge of a new production ("will direct" won't cut it, of course)
of Wagner's "Ring" in Paris in 2005-'06, based on his 2002 Zurich Opera
presentation. His 2004 activity includes revivals of his "Madame
Butterfly" in Los Angeles, and of "Pelleas and Melisande" in Paris; new
productions of La Fontaine's "Les Fables" at the Comedie Francaise, and
"I La Galigo" in Singapore.
Wilson and American Conservatory Theater artistic director Carey Perloff
will speak at a free Prologue event tomorrow in San Francisco's Geary
Theater at 5:30 p.m., before the evening's premiere of "Black Rider."
