Peter Stein  - [This is just one of a vast number of plays and operas Stein has scheduled over the next five years, including Oedipus at Colonus with Michel Piccoli in Paris, a trio of Tchaikovsky's Pushkin-based operas in Lyons, Henze's The Bassarids in Amsterdam, Monteverdi's Return of Ulysses in Strasbourg, Botho Strauss's The Park in Italy and Shakespeare's Richard II in Russia.] It's a nightmare, ... I think I should cancel some. Or perhaps I should ask them to give me the money now so that, when I die, they will have paid me a third without getting the show. Then I can spin in my grave laughing.

Peter Stein  - [Stein has also been invited to stage Troilus and Cressida for McMaster's final Edinburgh festival next year and then take it to Stratford as part of the RSC's year-long Bardathon.] If I do it, ... I will dedicate it to John Barton. I never forget his 1960s production and its focus on Hector and Achilles. I was also thrilled by the scene where Cressida comes to these Greek assholes and everyone wants to screw her. It was fantastic. But I always steal from others. We directors are not giants. We are dwarves all standing on each other's shoulders in an effort to reach the text.
