Geherheimnis

“Since no opera company in the U.S. has quite got up the courage to present a Herheim production, this webcast offers us a chance to sample this director’s unique style of Regie: it’s simultaneously brainy and exuberant, somehow balancing strict intellectual rigor and the brashest theatricality. It’s a bit like hearing a treatise from TDR performed by Lypsinka.” Our Own JJ returns to the pages of Musical America with his latest Rough and Regie column. (Thanks to Likely Impossibilities for the very handy neologism in the headline!)
