Regie off the port bow

Sometimes the simplest solutions are best, as Pat C. realized in identifying our previous Regie quiz as Samson et Dalila. This Victorian realization of the work was directed by Patrick Kinmonth for the Grand Théâtre de Genève. After a video glimpse at this staging, a change in mode of transportation will carry us to our next quiz.

    What an initially shocking view of the excerpts from the Kinmonth SAMSON. I wonder why nobody died in the shootings, It’s nice to see the ladies of the chorus dressed so nicely too. I hope they televise it in Berlin. Here are some scenes from the rehearsals:

    La Gioconda.

    1. The Act One rioters get ready to attack La Cieca.
    2. The beginning of Act Two.
    3. Still in Act Two, Barnaba enters for his fake sea chanty.

      rysanekfreak--You beat me to the punch! This definitely strikes me as Gioconda too. The middle photo sealed it for me.

  • Belfagor says:

    La belle Helene?

  • lucy brown says:

    I don’t know why it’s saying Orphee aux Enfers to me, but it is. It looks like it’s set in two different time periods (at least), and that middle scene could be the setting for Dormons Dormons. Looks awfully lugubrious for Offenbach, though.

    Back to the Samson -- when are they broadcasting it? Trailer sounds like a beautiufl performance.

  • Dave Yaney says:

    Sadko.
    1. Sadko finds solace among the mermaids.
    2. Sea-King and Volkhova make terrible storm to entrap Sadko.
    3. Sadko returns home to cheers of Novgorodniks.

    Oberon?
