The sublime and the ridiculous January 7, 2008

Posted by Jeff in French, Netrebko and Villazón, Opera, Theater.

At the Vienna Opera Ball on February 15, 2007, a hilarious contrast between the alpha and omega of contemporary standards of beauty.

Anna Netrebko, the classiest and most beautiful opera singer working today (and she looks good too!), performs from Act III of Massenet’s Manon. Note the bored occupant of the left side of the VIP box, about fifteen seconds from the end of the video. Je suis toujours tout étourdie, indeed.
