[The queer Shopping Cart-a Magna: Frank Castorf stages Gounod’s “Faust” at Staatsoper Stuttgart, delivers a genius evening on all accounts, and turns Siebel into a lady, too.

And as if this evening needed another reason: there is IRIS VERMILLION as Marthe (excuse me while I bite into my pillow and scream for a minute). ARTE, please get on this, in case I won’t make it to Stuttgart for one of the remaining three November dates (there are three more in January, though).
