Lyrics for a Wedekind Cabaret

  • Eric Bentley


In 1993–94 Eric Bentley prepared an entertainment entitled Tingle Tangle: a Wedekind Cabaret, with music by William Bolcom, Peter Winkler, and Arnold Black. This contained many Wedekind lyrics in [approximations] by Bentley, and also the four original lyrics by Bentley which are printed below, as a tribute to Jan Kott – and a [thank you] for the essay on Wedekind which Kott contributed to The Play and Its Critic, the Festschrift assembled for Bentley's seventieth birthday in 1976. One of the lyrics below, [Lulu], was included in The First Lulu in 1993: the others are published here for the first time. All four lyrics are copyright 1993, 1994, by Eric Bentley.
