[Clearly, it is the autumn of chaises. And sopranos on chaises. Fate, what are trying to tell me? – Thank you, Deutsche Oper, for your Flickr slideshow of Meyerbeer’s “Les Huguenots”, starring Patrizia Ciofi (Marguerite) and Irene Roberts (Urbain), Berlin 2016 – Photo Credit: Bettina Stöß/Deutsche Oper Berlin]
As long as there are lady ‘stashes and pinstripes and classy Patrizia-Ciofi-lounging on chaises, I will not yet give up the world despite absurd current choices (absurd, not-classy-at-all choices).
Then again, faced with those choices and their outcome, perhaps the only appropriate on par is putting on our best evening gown and riding around the planet with an expression of royal judgment on a giant warhorse.
