In 1976, Jack Unterweger was convicted for the murder of Margaret Schaefer and sentenced to life in prison. While imprisoned, he committed himself to reading and writing, eventually earning literary respect both inside and outside the penitentiary. In 1984, his autobiography "Fegefeuer" (Purgatory) became a bestseller. Convinced that he was a reformed man, the state released him on parole in 1990. J.U. became a celebrity in literature circles, got booked for speaking engagements and appeared on talk shows. Not everyone was convinced of his transformation, since during this period a growing number of prostitutes in Vienna, Graz, Prague and Los Angeles had disappeared and were later found strangled. The police took Jack under surveillance but he managed to flee to Miami where the FBI finally caught up on him. In 1992, J.U. was detained, evidence against him was overwhelming and in 1994 he was finally found guilty as charged for nine counts of murder. Soon after being sentenced, he used ...

Project to introduce you into opera
2 September 2011 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I bumped into this video and it got my curiosity, since I absolutely do not mind mainstream classical music. In the beginning I thought it would be a show where some classical music is going to be played, then John Malkovich would say something while the musicians are taking a break and visa versa. But fortunately it was more then that and John Malkovich really interacted with the female opera singers (lucky old bastard), the orchestra and the audience.

I hoped to find a review here from an opera-expert, who could explain to me which opera pieces were performed and how they fit in with the serial killer's story, but I see I am the first one to review this video. I hope someone who really knows opera can explain me about this some day, because the pieces have really intrigued me now.

This project is most likely made to introduce people into opera and it did work for me, so this art-project is therefore a success. However the story line, that started and built up so good, did not deliver a satisfying ending and I think more could have been done on that part. 7/10

PS. If you look at the books stacked on the table, you can see they have taken the best parts out of several different plays. ^^
