I am amazewd at my friend Robert T, Jones--surely Mr. Broucek in Janacek's
opera travels back in time to the Hussite era, even if only in a
beer-induced dream.

In Philip Glass' THE VOYAGE there is a segment in which a space traveller
goes back in time to confront a primitive civilization.

    I live through risk.  Without risk, there is no art. You should always
    be on the edge of a cliff about to fall down and break your neck.
