    Oh, Come On, It wasn’t THAT bad.

    Actually, I rather liked it when I saw it opening Night (I have a friend who is singing a leading role in the production…I won’t say who). Sure the concept could have used some work and the Giants were a BIT laughable, but on the whole the evening was a good one, There was excellent work from the pit, and Gordon Hawkins was really just excellent. Frighteningly good. I can’t wait to see him in PORGY next year in LA.

  2. I’m seeing this on April Fifth, and very, very afraid. It’s a shame that we’ve let pretentious critics badger the opera world into reimagining operas that were never meant to be so malleable. On the upside, Phillip Glass is doing a tribute to Allen Ginsburg, which may create a singularity of musical pretense so dense that all the critics get lost for good.
