Well, faced with that jawline, I might not get out of my pajamas, either. Or at least not out of bed.
While David Alden’s (I recall, among others, his very well observed “Ariodante” with the Ginevra abuse storyline) staging is not undisputed and, as I would expect from him, doesn’t offer champagne sherbet glee (check Intermezzo’s review for a good summary), I can very much behind the idea of dragons on black silk.
If you’re around London this autumn: this “Fledermaus” is running at ENO until Nov. 6th, furter details (and media) can be found here.
