Iconoclastic enfant terrible of the theater and opera stage who was appointed director of the Boston Shakespeare Company at age 25 and the Kennedy Center's American National Theater at 26 and who won notoriety for his radical reinterpretations and updating of classical operas. Sellars made his film directing and writing debut with the silent thriller, "The Cabinet of Dr. Ramirez" (1991), which is loosely based on Robert Wiene's 1919 classic of German expressionism, but updated to contemporary New York.
