The Gran Teatre del Liceu has posted 70 clips from a variety of their opera productions over the last decade or so. Great singing and improbable regie: who could ask for anything more?

    It is a nice change to see Podles beautifully costumed as a lady, and it was beautifully sung, and obviously heartfelt-- but her thing of singing with eyes closed is annoying. Perhaps not a big deal in the house when you aren’t seeing closeups, but that kind of ‘in the moment’ stuff is for American Idol. On the other hand, perhaps she was told to do so by the crap director who thought it would be good for Sesto to distractingly clean his sword, as if a son would ignore such an outpouring of grief from his mother, as if a singer would ignore Podles while she is singing, as if the audience wants to have their focus stolen by some stage business put in by a director who is directing Handel even though he thinks Handel is so boring that not even Handel characters find it interesting… And that bit clutching the head was too stupid. So this is ‘Salome’ all of a sudden? Took me completely out of the moment and undermined all the work Madame had done up to that point. Fucking directors-- is there any wonder that Zeffirelli productions lumber on for 25 tired years? Whenever someone tells a lawyer joke, in my mind I replace lawyer with ‘director’.
