It’s (nearly) out.
Though really, Sony, if you try for a *dramatical* release in early November and it’s “Don Giovanni”, you know that it has to be Nov. 2nd. Communion with those beyond the grave and all. #HistorianProblems
(yes I’d also be excited about this if it weren’t for the female cast (but Gauvin and Papatanasiu, come on!))
There are five kinds of wrong going on with this review (starting with “Giovanni’s women are…” – excuse me, did I miss the property tags?), but least it gets the excitement thing right.
God, I hope it’s not sexist wallowing. Well, at least I don’t expect there to be much wallowing. And in need of antidotes, there is always this recent feminist panel to rejoice in (and if you want more Bonnie Gordon after that (or after this), check out her Monteverdi book).
So I guess this will go as mp3 download onto the mobile device for my weekend conference – I guess I won’t need that much caffeine to keep me awake.
