In good news, thadieu has finally arrived on this side of the ocean and the Alcina Adventure is on. Gray skies, thermos, waiting queue, here we come!
We started with an “Armide” last night that was scenically better than reviews let on, yet did not deliver on its own queer premise, but it was musically wholly engaging. #LesMagiciensDuLouvre (review forthcoming)
(Also, my fangirl review of “Alcina” is still under wraps because there are two paragraphs missing. Didn’t get to finish it this morning, because thadieu and I got drawn into a large Spiderman puzzle by the Valkyries. To no one’s surprise, we found ourselves doing the shoulder part without even trying to do so)
