[The only version of “Twilight” I’ll ever watch: the one with the mezzo serenading underneath the balcony. #OutMontagued! – Marianne Crébassa (Fantasio) and Marie-Eve Munger (Elsbeth) in Offenbach’s “Fantasio”, Paris/TdC 2017]
The times call for some Offenbach and mezzos in trousers (the again, when do they not?), so this weekend, we’re finally liveblogging the recent “Fantasio” staged by Thomas Jolly at Théâtre du Châtelet, this Saturday, Mar. 25th, at 9 p.m. UTC+1.
All White Shirts and friends invited; I think the only thing we’re missing at this point is the champage. And the ice bucket, because you never know what happens when the stage lovechild of Spike and Drusilla happens to be able to sing.
