“The bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni, playing Leporello in the Met’s recent Don Giovanni, asked for vegetable sausage, said James Blumenfeld, the Met property master. ‘It was the most disgusting thing I ever smelled,’ Mr. Blumenfeld said. He added that the bass-baritone James Morris is known for preferring bananas when he is playing Scarpia in the fatal meal scene of Verdi’s Tosca.” [New York Times] (Photo: Ken Howard)

    I heard that set for Hansel represents a blowjob that would be given to the entire Republican Congress at the same time…

      No no, Zinka! That’s not “to” the entire Republican Congress, it’s “by”
      the entire Rep Congress. More than they deserve in my view!

    I definitely know about the KFC! Back in the mid-90s, much of it often disappeared before the Giovanni banquet scene even began. Turns out a certain Donna Anna, after Non mi dir, helped herself to the Colonel’s crispy goodness… As troublesome as this was for the prop guys, it was far more so for the costumers, who routinely had to have her gowns cleaned of the resultant grease.
