In 1982 Jean-Jacques Schuhl wrote a fictional end-time drama for radio, and the Fassbinder companion Peer Raben turned it into a radio opera for the magnificent Ingrid Caven. This ambitious work then situated in the near future has been lost, including the broadcast tapes. Together with Michael Emanuel Bauer, Raben's colleague for many years, Oliver Held has prepared a new version for the young singer Ibadet Ramadani combining the historical source with contemporary jazz to form a gripping fusion production. Oliver Held's textual version sets the action in the past, which in the original was as yet the future. Authentic tone documents and reminiscences of the events, culture, and lifestyle of the late 1980s produce a panorama of the spirit of those times, during which "the end of history" was interiorized as an infallible truth.
