A Bit More Mines...

Karen further illuminates the potentially interesting connections between Lulu and The Mines of Sulphur in her comment to The Sweet Smell of Sulphur.

Speaking of Berg, I am particularly excited for my first ever live viewing of Wozzeck at the Met in January. Though I find it questionable that this is a Mark Lamos joint. I am sure it's fine...but as a friend and I discussed the other evening, are we the only ones who feel like his aesthetic is perpetually a bit 1991?

Are you the only ones who feel like his etc 1991? Nah, I'll buy that.

Whew. Validation! None of this is to say I don't enjoy some of his productions. They're just a bit "on the nose" and date themselves pretty readily.

I think I may have blogged (bloggen? blug? geblugt?) about a Lamos Tosca. The one NYCO used in their posters forever. It was great, with some missteps along the way, but it was definitely from that moment before setting everything in a fascist regime got a little tired.

Great story as for me. I'd like to read more about this matter.
By the way look at the design I've made myself Overnight escort
