Constance is having an intensely Operatic weekend. This morning we trotted up to Sidney’s Star Cinema, for the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD presentation of Rigoletto. It was a spectacular production set in a 1960’s Las Vegas Casino – a very amusing setting for a very tragic story.
It was not a performance for the faint of heart, or the staid…peppered with cabaret dancers, striptease artists, neon signs, and Gilda gasping (warbling) her last breath in the trunk of a vintage Cadillac. We enjoyed the whole thing and especially liked the evil Sparafucile, as he slicked back his greasy hair. More Opera tomorrow!
