  •  Your Warner is a lot like our Strand in Rockland. (8+ / 0-)

    I really love what the Met is doing with the simulcasts and the many lovingly restored old theatres that help make his possible.

    People might not realize this, but opera is a lot more popular than many people think, and it's also cheaper than a Red Sox or Yankee's game.

      on the act; last time Mr. Scribe and I were at the Century Great Mall (last December when they had the Lord of the Rings Marathon -- all three films in one day) I noticed a poster for the Met Opera Simulcast at 9:30 am on Saturdays. Now that you've mentioned The Nose, sounds like a hoot...maybe I'll look into that one, we need more culture.

        a dysfunctional society and political system, dressed as fantasy in order to get past the censors. Just imagine whiny little Teddy "Bear" Cruz or any leading GOPosaur with mustard up his nose in the title role. That makes the Sharkstakovitch music totally in character, especially if you can't "bear" to listen to it otherwise. That's certainly the effect Cruz has on me.

        The scene that summed it all up for me is when the character who has lost his nose meets it in the street dressed as a fairly high-ranking Tsarist civil servant, and it refuses to acknowledge his existence. Yes, it is that level of fantasy and snark both.
