UPDATE: David Alden‘s manager Angela Maria Blasi confirms that he resides in London and has no home in Beverly Hills. What a pity: how La Cieca imagines David striding to the very lip of that brutalist fireplace and holding forth on the halcyon days of the ENO Mazeppa!

EARLIER: La Cieca discovered a blog post on curbed.com entitled PoMo Opera Director’s Wood and Concrete in Beverly Park, describing a listing for a $25 million mansion that “belongs to director David Alden, who’s known for his dark and political opera stagings.”
