What the well-dressed Alexandrian will wear

“The courtesan’s entourage included dancing girls in filmy harem pants and bedazzled Afro wigs, and the hunky chorus boys pranced about in velour leggings, codpieces and nipple ornaments.” [New York Post]

    Just post the whole thing on YouTube, somebody, during the weekend when the art police aren’t looking.

    Sorry, I was referring to the Lohengrin, but if anybody would like to post footage of this Thais, I’d be more than thrilled.

    Did anyone hear the Thaïs bdcst today from São Carlos de Lisboa? I am listening to it now. I don’t know any of the singers, but I believe some of them have sung at Opera Holland Park, Grange Park Opera and Opera North -- terra incognita for me, but I am enjoying listening to these singers and this performance on my replay right now.
