White Shirt Monday: “Boinked (the Bride)”

[Does anyone remember that particular Ember Swift song? And in how many subversive layers could it apply to this situation? – Kate Lindsey (Cherubino) and Malin Byström (Countess, my Countess) in Mozart’s “Le nozze di Figaro”, Aix-en-Provence 2012]

And really, don’ t take my broken graphic’s card meager pixely words for it, head over to ArteLiveWeb and watch the thing on your own.

And I dare you not to swoon at the look Malin Byström’s Countess is shooting Kate Lindsey’s Cherubino during “Voi che sapete”. That’s the stuff baby-dyke-dreams are made of!

  1. If, like me, anyone cannot access ArtLiveWeb head over to YouTube where some wonderful person has posted chunks of this production – including “Voi che sapete”! 😉 Some rehearsal footage can also be seen there.


    1. If the German site doesn’t work for you, it sometimes pays to try the French site. Or vice versa. Or sometimes the specific page for the performance will be blocked, but accessing it off the menu on the main page will be fine. Or sometimes going in via one of the secondary links at the bottom of the page will work…if what you’re looking for shows up there. Urgh.

      Currently it’s working for me here off the sidebar menu: http://liveweb.arte.tv/fr/cat/Classique/

      but not anywhere else.
