A Lecture in Hamburg
- 1. On April 20, Prof.
Haeberle gave an invited lecture at the Thalia Theater,
Hamburg, for the director, the actors, designers, musicians, and technical
staff preparing a new production of J. W. Goethe’s “Faust - Parts I and II”.
The title of his lecture was: “Goethes ‘Faust’ - sexualwissenschaftlich betrachtet"
(Goethe’s ‘Faust’ from a sexological
point of view). This was one in a series of four lectures. The other three
were given by Prof. Hans Christoph Binswanger, St. Gallen, Prof. Manfed Osten,
Bonn, and Prof. Gernot Böhme, Darmstadt. The new ‘Faust’ production will have
its première on July 28th at the Salzburg Festival. The Hamburg
première is scheduled for September 30. For the text of the lecture, click here.
