  •  Thanks for the tip on this new opera. (4+ / 0-)

    Although I didn't know about this opera, I can well visualize Renee Fleming as Stella.  

    One comment really stood out for me :  

    "when you dare to take on a masterpiece of drama, there are usually just two options. Either you really have something to say about the work that can come through only with music, or you boldly appropriate the play, change it at will and make it your own.
    I could also apply visually to the filmmakers who appropriate great works of fiction and bring them to the screen.  

    It's the Supreme Court, stupid!
