What begins as an idyll ends up as a hell: the friendship between Friedrich Nietzsche and Richard Wagner. It is only after Wagner's death that Nietzsche launches his vitriolic indictment of him.

Nietzsche and Wagner as alter egos, art somewhere between thinking and dreaming. In the hands of writer Stefan Hertmans, composer Moritz Eggert and theatre-maker Jan Fabre, 'The Tragedy of a Friendship' develops into a new opera. A homage to Wagner.
