MOSCOW — The cancellation of a racy interpretation of a classic opera has turned the spotlight on muscle-flexing by the conservative Orthodox Church in previously atheist Russia.
The state-owned Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theater premiered a revamp of Richard Wagner's 1845 "Tannhäuser" in December, with the title character being changed to a director filming a movie about Christ having sex.
Stage decorations included posters modeled on an ad for "The People Vs. Larry Flynt," the 1996 film starring Woody Harrelson that eulogized the pornographer and First Amendment rights activist. However, the new adaptation of the opera's version showed an image of Jesus crucified on a vagina.
