Cher Public

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.

  • Perles75

    It has a taste of Così fan Tutte but I cannot place the beer in the first photo…

  • MontyNostry

    Penthesilea?

  • gingerromatica

    I is Pirates of the Caribbean the Opera

  • This is the new Christopher Columbus mash-up, with different acts taken by operas from Felicien David, Alberto Franchetti and Darius Milhaud (or FeliFranchaud, as the trio are affectionately known.)

  • guy pacifica

    Perhaps an especially rowdy rendition of Candide?

    1) the casino scene
    2) crossing the Atlantic with the three kings
    3) the auto de fe scene.

  • Camille

    Der Fliegende Holländer.

    Dont ask why.

  • For a moment, I also got a scent of Cosi, Obviously, it looks too much like Pirates of Pensance or PMS Pinafore, sot it would be too obvious.

  • louannd

    Ship, sailors, storm, pirates -- Rossini’s “L’italiana in Algeri?” Doesn’t explain #1 though.

  • Entführung aus dem Serail

  • Krunoslav

    TRISTAN, obviously.

  • Quanto Painy Fakor

    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:

  • rysanekfreak

    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.

    • Sheldon

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

  • Belfagor

    La belle Helene?

  • lucy brown

    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.

  • phoenix

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

  • Dave Yaney

    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.

  • Sir Ferris

    Oberon?
