Via GlassNotes, Wichita Vortex Sutra! One of my favorite Glass tunes. American Opera Theater, Georgetown University Program in Performing Arts:Okay but the thing is I don't like this production. I don't like their hip threads, I don't like their "dramatic" movements, I don't like staging this in front of a "country church" backdrop, as a "revival." Isn't it too easy? Doesn't the chorale in the piano part already put you in mind of a country church? Doesn't the poem already have the cadence of a sermon? How much more interesting would this be if it were staged as a cooking demonstration! Or a magic show! Or an anatomy class! Somebody give me money, I would stage this so awesome. Also, can I say this aagain, the sassy threads, the dramatic movements. Those dang boxes. Too cute! Literally! It gives me such an Up With People feeling, in a bad way. Or maybe Celebration Iowa:Hahaha and you thought nobody had a worse violinist than Belle & Sebastian. Wait what was I talking about. The End.
