8-bit Regie

Even if no one guessed the correct opera on our most recent Regie quiz, Our Own Batty Masetto did the next best or perhaps even better thing by devising the silliest scenario. And it’s not like it was easy, either, since the work in question was Auber’s Le Cheval de bronze, as directed by Frank Hilbrich for the Komische Oper. We remain (apparently) in the exotic East for our next quiz, after the jump.

    2-Elektra in her crazed fury has turned into Godzilla, and that is Orest coming home who is being recognized by her: insert Godzilla noise here.

    3-Orest in his final ritual murder costume before he goes in and does the murderous deeds
