KLAUS MARIA BRANDAUER READS “FAUST … EIN GEFESSELTER PROMETHEUS”
Diabolical power promises people extraordinary abilities in their lives in return for the eternal damnation of their souls after death. Klaus Maria Brandauer devotes himself to two larger-than-life figures of literary history, Goethe’s Faust and Prometheus. In his reading of texts addressing Faust and its themes, by such authors as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Magister Georgius Sabellicus Faustus, Heinrich Heine, Thomas Mann and others,  he paints an ambivalent picture of Faust as a scholar with tragic, Promethean traits. Arno Waschk accompanies the reading with piano pieces by classical composers.
