Second whinge of 2014

I just realised that ROH’s Die Frau Ohne Schatten is directed by none other than Il Guth. What better time for a restricted view seat? It’s not like I’ll miss Johan Botha’s riveting stage antics.

Let me reaffirm my contempt for Guth’s so-called productions of Le nozze and Don Giovanni. Shite. More so because I really like Dorothea Roschmann, including the performances she turned in those productions. Yet you couldn’t get me to sit twice through either. Great job there, buddy.
