On the Regie again

Indeed those were Cretan windmills seen in the most recent Regie quiz, and once that fact was established, manou and MontyNostry quickly closed the case: the opera is indeed Idomeneo, as performed at the Tiroler Landestheater in a production by Peer Boysen. You’ll find more to puzzle over after the jump.

What work is this, cher public?

    ANDREA CHENIER
    1. Act One — “Un di all’azzurro” — the trailer metamorphises from the party to illustrate Chenier’s sympathy for poorer folk (this is a subtle production). . . Gerard’s mother and the others soon after come out of the trailer
    2. Act Three — “Nemico della Patria”… with the jurors behind
    3. Act Two — “Ora soave, sublime ora d’amore!”. This staging is repeated in Act Four --”Vicino a te” except there they are not interrupted so they get totally naked.

    Duke Bluebeard’s Trailer (including a scene that opens it up, showing us what’s behind door #2).

  • BillysBuddy says:

    It has an inchoate Parsifal vibe to me, maybe because the sickly gent in #2 seems to be favoring a wound in his right side.

      But, upon further consideration, Götterdämmerung: Siegfried after his Winnebago-am-Rheinreise; Siegfried welcomed to the Gibichung hall; Gutrune and Siegfried get it awn.
