@matt_cav_ Looking forward to some note-comparing on your return. We were only there a couple of nights—twixt the Sibillini mountains &Lazio
@markravenhill @Postcards_Gods @theatremagazine As I typed that description I realise I made it sound crap. But it really was fabulous.
@Postcards_Gods @theatremagazine Richard Jones did a pretty good one at ENO years ago, with suicide-bomber disco-dancing Trojan women.
@Postcards_Gods @theatremagazine Your review of part two by the way is HILARIOUS. Reminded me of so many unreflexive opera prods I've seen.
@Postcards_Gods @theatremagazine True! Well the myths are always malleable... & heroines in 19C opera (nearly) always end up dead/mad
@Postcards_Gods @theatremagazine Presumably the cue comes in fact from Aeschylus.
@Postcards_Gods @theatremagazine V nice! Cassandra-as-heroine is Boulez's invention. A tragic woman to balance Dido. She's barely in Virgil.
