    The Culture Vulture Thread

    I watched this version of Mozart's most famous opera for the 3rd time tonight.



    The dusky russkie playing Susanna, trying to evade the lusty clutches of the count in the convoluted chicanery, is a knockout and the imaginative choreography distinguishes this production

    Ildebrando D'Arcangelo is the greatest Figaro of all time

    I first encountered him in this earlier version, which has double subs (English + Italian) which makes it easier to sing along karaoke style during the more famous arias



    I also found a new version has popped up on the tubes a year ago so I shall give it a spin. The Figaro Adam Maxey does not seem to shine very brightly on a first quick flick through the highlights but the svelte dark skinned Susanna is a cutie

    I'd have thought 'cosi fan tutte' would be the favourite for the TD male members....

    ...I think Pagliacci would be more appropriate...

    Anything Mozart in your life is making things better.

    In the previously normal world, did anyone do the Van Gogh/Gauguin tour in Amsterdam (the hour or two when you weren't off your kite)?

    Fascinating stuff.

    Here's a taster when Gauguin wasn't toasted and they weren't trying to kill each other:
