Cher Public

Today’s secret word is Regie

Perhaps La Cieca did not quite play fair with you on the most recent Regie quiz, cher public, because the work depicted is a relatively new one, from 2007 in fact. It’s Die Schatzinsel, an “Abenteueroper” by Frank Schwemmer and Michael Frowin presented by the Opernhaus Zürich. The production is by Nadja Loschky.   Take a look at the trailer for this arrrrguably obscure piece, and after that the next Regie quiz, after the jump.  

Now, cher public, what’s up with this production? Remember, if you recognize the staging, hush while others make their educated guesses!

    Looks very commedia dell’arte -- Love for Three Oranges or Tote Stadt?

    Cosi fan tutte --
    1]Dorabella, Fiordiligi and Don Alfonso — Soave sia il vento as a laff riot

    2]Ferrando and Guglielmo when they are singing about their attributes

    3]Don Alfonso at the end having been proven right

      I tend to think that all Regie quizzes are Cosi.

      • Rowna

        I always think they are Lohengrin or Goetterdaemmerung

    • Believe it or not, you took the words out of my mouth.

  • Vanette

      The *odds* are in your favor. Would be my guess as well. :)

    The second picture looks like someone is being visited with a prophetic dream, and that he doesn’t like it. So I will go with Dido and Aeneas.

  • Anna Mills

    2. Wounded Prince Andrei- delirious

    Clearly, this is Andrea Breth’s wonderous new Luisa Miller from Brussels:

    Photo One -- The Duchess Frederika revels over her pursuit of Rodolfo, as Luisa despairs

    Photo Two -- Wurm recounts the murder of Count Waldner’s brother, as the Count tries to pretend it’s all a bad dream
