Notes

Packaged in a generic, unprinted heavy white cover with no info whatsoever. The labels do not give any further credits (Robert Wilson is not even mentioned on the release) apart from the title of the opera and "Byrd Hoffman School Of Byrds", the company of Robert Wilson at that time.

"This all-night performance was a final grand statement of Wilson's work with his original ensemble, the Byrd Hoffman School of Byrds. Incorporating scenes from The King of Spain, The Life and Times of Sigmund Freud, Deafman Glance, and KA MOUNTAIN, Wilson devised a remarkable structure in which the play's first three acts subtly mirrored its last three acts, and its central act (the fourth) became a pivot around which the others revolved. The play interweaves surrealistic takes on Stalin's life with other dream-like renderings of life in the twentieth century, all presented within the elaborate stage artifice of the Victorian age."

"Many people said the work had nothing to do with Stalin, and in a sense you could see it that way. It wasn't the kind of work one would see about Stalin in a history book, but it was a work by an artist. It was a work in which we could see Stalin as a monster sitting in the middle of the Victorian bedroom; we could see him as the priest, as a murderess; we could see him as the mother, the child; we could see him as the Ice Man. We could see him as many characters, or as no one. Or Stalin could be seen as no one -- could only appear as a name in the title. It was thinking of contemporary gods the way Racine or the Greeks wrote about the gods of their time. They were commonly known by man. With Stalin already in the title, the audience came to the theater with some knowledge of who this man was, sharing the story. In a sense, I didn't have to tell a story; one could just associate these pictures with their own ideas of Stalin, and mine. Or one could look at it in a more literal way, the relationship of Stalin to the pictures. The story could simply be in the title"
(Paul Kaiser, Interview with Robert Wilson, December 1995, for Visionary of Theatre CD-ROM)

Dorintrius
The reason Stalin appears in Life and Times of Joseph Stalin in many representations, is, because he represents everyman. In many a father, in many mothers and children, there is a dictator.The natural man is ruthless. It requires God, Jesus, to transform a human. By being born again, being born of the Holy Spirit we receive new blood. We receive the DNA of Jesus. We become new creatures. Stalin has been enthroned by an immense number of God haters, minor dicators, to rule over them. He became god. The condition of the world is sin and the only way out is Jesus. In the world God allows power to pass on from a dictator to a dictator. Thank God there are exceptions and humanity takes a deep breath. So this is what Life and Times of Joseph Stalin was about even though Robert Wilson did not know it. In those days he could not be bothered with Jesus. He thought he was doing it himself. There are only two positions in which we find humans in the world. There are the children of God and everybody else. Unfortunately the everyone elses are controled by Lucifer.
