[It’s been a week. White Shirt plans for the future: plotting and protesting and having each other’s backs while looking fabulous in white shirts and practicing the ‘judging you!’ eyebrow rise of Geschwitz. – Brenda Rae (Lulu) and Sarah Connolly (Countess Geschwitz) in Berg’s “Lulu”, London/ENO 2016.

If your plans for the rest of the week don’t include being at ENO for the remaining two performances of the Kentridge-staged “Lulu” (tonight and on Sat 19, respectively), how about a liveblog get-together on something completely different?
We still have the Rennes “Traviata” on our “to watch” list, and since I doubt anyone can make it to Papatanasiu’s live take on “Traviata” in Athens this weekend on such short notice, we could do the virtual alternative event and liveblog the Rennes one.
I don’t know about you, but I am dire need of honest opera and your company.
Meanwhile, in fun notes of Twitter and to lounge in style for the event: “how to dress like Cencic without breaking the bank”, via forumopera. As long as the world doesn’t tout army coat chic to go with its dire outlooks at the moment, there is still hope. And flowers.
