A Twitter timeline can offer beautiful (in)sights.
What’s also beautiful: the full review over at Ôlyrix.
And you know what must also be beautiful? To be an ‘opera power couple’ and have breakfast conversations like this:
“Oh, where would we like to spend some time together, among the world’s most beautiful opera places?”
“I heard Drottningholm is lovely that time of year!”
“I am sure the Musiciens will agree. – How about we make it a whole da Ponte trilogy?”
Meanwhile, my line is: “How about Dorttningholm (Or the Opéra Royal, or the Musiciens du Louvre) organize a broadcast of this? Or how about the while trilogy?” Because I will line up for Minkowski and the Musiciens du Louvre playing Mozart (or anything, really, whom am I kidding. But Mozart!)
Meanwhile, another beautiful thing: the Pirate!Elvira fanfic plots that are conjured up now like Barbosa zombie minions at midnight (possibly also staring Antonacci from that Vienna decor shipwreck, or some added Southern California Dreaming).
