That's why the early ones work as entertaining products of their time (ugly warts and all), but it's very hard for them to make a plausible new entry.

See also stuff (of less than the highest artistic quality) out of step with current mores enjoyable mainly as camp.

I guess I was wrongly assuming they were camp.

I guess at some point you run into Poe's Law.

Color is revealing
White is pure
But yields no true hue
Black is forever
But requires no forgiveness
The dove brings love
And the raven - fear
Sleep Warm

I guess I got really lucky with a cancellation (or something?) for Barbara Hannigan's Satie program at the Armory.

 

It was, like, great, I loved it, fantastic... but what was up with the staging/production? Hannigan walking around waving her arms dramatically wasn't really a great fit for the music.

 

I think I saw her joking about it with someone who was in the audience as we were leaving, actually.

Thaïs would make a lot more sense if it actually explained at some point that Thaïs had been baptized as a child, or something.

 

Okay, no, it'd still make no sense, but it'd be slightly less nonsensical.

Wait, no, that still doesn't make any sense, because Athanaël had no way to know that.

Aquanetta was a wild show last night. Impressive work all around.

Loved it.  Just loved it.

My friend was the production stage manager so he gave us a tour of the "room".  Absolutely wild to see all of those mechanics up close and how they made the logistics work.
