It has all the ingredients of a modern soap opera: romances with models, a passionate love affair with a life-long muse and tragic plot twists like the untimely death of his beloved brother and his second son. “Gustav Klimt—the musical”, opening in the Austrian capital on 2 September, is bound to be a hit. As the Klimt bandwagon rumbles on in the name of the artist's 150th anniversary, Vienna's Künstlerhaus has chosen to set his story to rock music and against a multimedia backdrop. Wonder how they'll act out The Kiss though?
