the magic flute
best production: the magic flute. shar's been hearing about the julie taymor production of the magic flute, so i sucked it up and got standing tickets for the met. 100 minutes of standing. good thing i got in my morning kula shot. the opera was thankfully abridged, but unfortunately in english. friends, opera in english just doesn't have soul. sorry! though i love me some mozart, i was here for the sets and costumes. ms. taymor delivered and brought me the chills i got when i first saw the lion king. giant puppets coupled with flowing fabrics and ribbons. gorgeous!
