Jonas and Bryn in La Damnation de Faust. What more could a woman want?
Well, for starters, a production that was not this weird: Hawking walks and snails mate in mawkish opera
That’s Stephen Hawking they are talking about. Let’s hope he got royalties. The actor playing him looks like an old Alan Rickman. The caged dancers wear Hanes-style undies.
Could someone explain the whole mess, please?
Jonas Kaufmann (Faust),
Bryn Terfel (Méphistophélès),
Sophie Koch (Marguerite),
Edwin Crossley-Mercer (Brander)
Conductor: Philippe Jordan
Best to close your eyes and enjoy the singing.
I hope Bryn & Jonas each got paid enough to pay off the mortgage and put the kids through college.
