Fine, the jeans are a nice touch, too, but how many mezzos can pull off jeans and that swagger stance together with a sheer shirt? Not many.
tha dieu sent me the photo a few days ago, tagged with “White Shirt Monday”, and I couldn’t agree more.
Meanwhile, Kasarova’s recent Mowcow appearance, including rehearsals, concert footage and a city stroll, continues to keep the White Shirt blogosphere atwitter.
Most of the clips can be found at the YT channels of Denis (Deoniz) and dolchev (sadly, not related to the Lachevs). For a comprehensive list and translations (thanks to Arashi), head over to Smorg’s place – if only all republics could rely on their president the way the Kasarovians can rely on Smorgy!
(On a side note, posting schedules should be back to normal as of this week. I’m relocating to winter quarters tonight and will only have my next set of deadlines and the start of the new opera season to tend to for a while.)
