When tha dieu (who in turn credits Definitely the Opera) sent me the interview that Anja Harteros gave in Mexican opera zine “pro ópera” and asked for a “TuxVest Monday”, I – once I regained my capacity of speech – couldn’t find a single reason not to do so.
Fine, so it’s not a role portrayal, least of all a White Shirt one, and it doesn’t feature a mezzo-soprano.
But on the other hand, look at all the White Shirt-ish elements: pin stripes! Shoulders! Arms! A vest! And did I mention the pin stripes? I think the pin stripes count twice.
Thanks, tha dieu (and DtO)!
