Video: The Jochen Rindt Opera

Submitted by on June 21, 2011

It is not often you see an opera set in the Formula 1 pitlane of 1970, but back in 2009 the Salzburg Rallye Club and the artists’ network lawine torrèn produced an opera about the tragic death of the racing driver Jochen Rindt

An international ensemble of dancers, singers and actors reconstructed Rindt last days. The 1970 World Champion was a national hero in Austria and the production was a “dramatic opera with the essence of a documentary” which celebrated his life.

Thanks to Art Michalik for the tip.
