No singing today, but some white shirt ballet vibes that I picked up on my recent trip to Stuttgart: this is the college-crowd advertisement postcard of the Stuttgart Staats Theatres, and I feel so called out.

      1. After her Ginevra, I have complete faith that she would be a Mélisande with agency (and hair). I see this and I see the wig department on overtime for three months, cursing and cursing and cursing the concept…

          1. what IS this?
            (they should have kissed at the end, or Rapunzel-Mélisande should have emptied a bucket of water over their heads. Or both.)

          2. Try to replace those two with Prina and JDD as Polinesso and Ariodante lamenting over Ginevra.

          5. “High in her tower she sits by the hour
            Maintaining her hair
            Blithe and becoming and frequently humming
            A light-hearted air
            Ahahahahahahahahahhhhh
            Agony, far more painful than yours
            When you know she would go with you
            If there only were doors…”
