[Curtain call for Handel’s “Alcina” at Vienna Staatsoper last night – Vienna, 2016.]
Yes, this blog will eventually be less monothematic and more coherent again, but not today (sorry about the lack of White Shirt Monday this week).
But perhaps Blue Skirt Monday can be a one-time exception?
It’s a testimony to the abysmal press treatment of this re-release by the Staatsoper that there is not a single press photo to find that I could have posted with this note. But thankfully, thadieu has last night’s curtain call covered, so I took a cap from there.
And for everyone not present in the house last night: yes, it was magical.
