[And this is how “Moulin Rouge” would have been a whole lot more interesting: Kate Lindsey as Nicklausse in Offenbach’s “Les contes d’Hoffmann”, New York/MET 2009. – Photo Credit: Ken Howard/MET]
Also, this would possibly make me read/watch a 19th century vampire adaptation. And (with the exception of Buffy) that’s saying something. Furthermore, we may need “Marlene – the Opera” and a genderswapped Dorian Gray.
(and possibly a less heterocentrist, less sulky update to Baudelaire who apparently couldn’t take a ‘no’ without whining in a-b-a-b for three pages)
And since there is definitely not enough Kate Lindsey in trousers yet (could there ever be?), you can watch her current portrayal of the Composer in Strauss’ “Ariadne auf Naxos” in Glyndebourne via livestream tomorrow (Eyes reported on this already), starting at 6.55 GMT. No top hats, but white shirts, cufflinks and a definite ‘Victor’ flourish to the outfits.
