[Fine. Yes. I would watch that entire “Figaro” just for the facial expressions of Diana Damrau. (and for some other reasons, too, none of which necessarily would include the staging concept) – Golda Schultz (Susanna), Marianne Crébassa (Cherubino) and Diana Damrau (Countess) in Mozart’s “Le nozze di Figaro” as staged by Frederic Wake-Walker, Milan 2016. – Photo Credit: Marco Brescia/Rudy Amisano for La Scala]
So… if I click my heels three times in those slippers, will I magically end up in between two sopranos?
I’m still not quite sure how I feel about Pornstachebino Goldilocks as a visual concept, but my media standards these days, when it comes to visuals, basically amount to “for the love of God, no orange” (which does not at all mean the Susanna outfit), so I think we are fine. Including that Contessa dress that vaguely reminds me of an oversized sea mollusk turned inside out and come to life. Again, not the worst kind of mollusk that has recently crawled out from their rocks and taken on far too much space (with apology to all mollusks).
