White Shirt Monday: Through a Pair of Dark Glasses

FID_ZU 1[So, what do you do when there’s a beautiful light soprano clinging to your legs? It’s not looking around in panic for guidance! – Anja Kampe (Leonore) and Julie Fuchs (Marzelline) in Beethoven’s “Fidelio”, Zurich 2013. – Photo Credit: Opera Zurich, who once more did not put the photographer credit within or underneath the photo gallery. Please enlighten me if you know the actual photographer.]

There’s a tie involved, a white shirt and something looking suspiciously like Cabot’s Glasses of Power and Justice – good enough for me!

Anja Kampe, rotoundly praised her Sieglinde in the new Bayreuth “Ring” last summer, is not usually moving through White Shirt repertory, but I wouldn’t mind if she did. Even if she has to work a little on her knotting technique (her pick-up lines clearly seem to work…).

Also, when a soprano wearing Those Glasses shoots you That Look, you take your jacket OFF, and don’t put it on:

    Mit uns freut euch! Bäume, säuselt alle!
    Maienglöckchen, klinget drein!

    1. thank you for the warm welcome back – time’s still an issue, but at least I don’t think neither Garanca nor I will quite end up with the same predicament ever agan.

      I’ll try my best to keep up (especially with the Maienglöckchen).
