went to the lyric last night to see manon lescaut. well sung- the sets however.. eh, i've seen the lyric go balls out so this production lacked the splendor of say aida or their annual garage sale just before halloween. ah opera.. thankfully i am not a woman in manon's day or else i might expect to be jailed, raped, dragged, branded, deported to a barren land and left for dead. for barren land read brutal martian landscape of lousiana. for left for dead read flailing about for an entire act singing how darkness draws near. so many times i thought she had breathed her last when her form would twitch and belt out a few minutes more. in other words, fabulous.
