    Well, let’s just start by getting the ‘more idiomatic than Kozena’ gags out of the way…

    That is ACE. And I have a new favourite tag.

    • Podlesmania

      Hahahaha!!! you just killed me! “more idiomatic than Kozena”. Genius!

  • armerjacquino

    Not bad when he’s being less kunst, either…

  • oedipe

    Great diction!

  • I love it, thank you La Cieca

  • Camille

    Kewl Kewl Kewl Kewl Kewl

    If I live to be 100 I will still never understand where and how La Cieca comes up with all this studs. Stuff.

    Maestro Wenarto had better watch his tiara….

  • This has left me in a deep state of shock and ecstasy.

  • Hippolyte

    Werner Schroeter lives!

  • …und das ist auch gut so.

    I did enjoy this too -- wonderful oneiric sequences. More on YouTube (also a “the making of…” clip).

    And not badly sung at all, to boot, and oui -- irreproachable French

    Hi tech indeed! Much more interesting than Kozena, Garanca or any number of current crop of Camencitas. Here’s “THE MAKING OF” video

      Too bad that the pianist with the ball gag didn’t get more play in the final cut. Yes, Wenarto had better apply for an NEA grant to compete with these new contenders. The credits are here:

    If my brain weren’t so overloaded by trying to keep up with Joss&Main, T&Lo, and a multitude of other Kewl internet stuff, I am sure I would be dazzled.

  • Quanto Painy Fakor

    She had better stop trying to sound like Deborah Voit!

    • justanothertenor

      Who is this woman singing L’Amero and Done Lieta?

  • Constantine A. Papas

    This is a masterpiece; and it can beat Las Vegas’ Rigoletto. Parody can be intellectually redeeming for the intellectually fatigued.

  • This video is kind of fabulous, isn’t it?

  • casualoperafan

    Looks to me for all the world like the Met competition….

  • Regina delle fate

    It looks like a Christoph Marthaler production…

  • Rowna

    I loved the Carmen. It is a complete work of art. This guy is a complete artist. Also, his singing of Tamino’s aria is just lovely. Thanks to LA for bringing him to our attention.
