  • Where's Runnicles: ETO's Fantastic Mr Fox, or The Vexed Question of Opera for Children
    are shorter than a normal Meeting for Worship which include programmed elements a theme activities etc where a normal meeting would simply involve all present waiting in gathered stillness with ministry coming if anybody is moved to speak I have usually felt that such Children s Meetings give a very misleading idea of what Quaker worship is actually like Similarly I came out of this feeling that it was going to give a child experiencing opera for the first time a very imperfect idea of what the art form is really like Alternatively it may in fact be that Tobias Picker and Donald Sturrock have simply written a not very good opera explaining why until Opera Holland Park revived a reduced version in 2010 it had not been performed since the original LA premiere 13 years ago and a greater work in itself would reveal these issues to be less problemmatic than they appeared as a consequence of this evening s performance These questions do matter very much Although audiences have been notably younger at least in the gods at Covent Garden and the Coliseum there is still a definite age problem for the opera and classical music world I grew up in an opera loving household but that is probably not common Newspaper headlines are constantly announcing reductions in opportunities for the teaching of music in schools or the opportunity to learn a musical instrument Given these circumstances ETO does deserve credit for this exercise in educational outreach and community involvement for trying to access a new audience But I cannot get away ultimately from a feeling that this particular attempt was a serious case of talking down to your audience and a feeling on some level that I would prefer that we tried for Opera for All not Opera for Families It might have been an interesting enterprise to take a sample group of children to ETO s Gianni Schicchi no longer than the first half of Fox and filled with physical comedy and on stage silliness and then to Fox and poll them on their reactions Labels 2010 11 Season Finn Opera Reviews No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Search Where s Runnicles Loading Where s

  • Where's Runnicles: The Royal Opera House, 2011-12 Season
    turn up The Richard Eyre Traviata returns for three blocks of performances with a couple of promising castings if only Keenlyside and Netrebko were in the same run and is well worth a look if you haven t seen it That leaves us with Bellini s La sonnambula about both work and singers I am utterly ignorant another revival of Donizetti s La Fille du regiment which again I think was done in 2009 10 but I believe is good fun and might be worth catching for Patrizia Ciofi who was a very good Gilda in last season s Rigoletto revival and La Boheme which has the attractions of Barbara Frittoli who I again last heard in the EIF Mackerras Maria Stuarda and the conducting of Semyon Bychkov As with directors there are two conspicuous omissions from the roster of conductors which I hope future Royal Opera seasons are going to rectify You will obviously expect me to complain once again at the failure to try to lure Donald Runnicles to Covent Garden but it may be that with his existing commitments it just isn t at present possible Far more baffling is the failure to give a return match to Dan Ettinger who made a blazing debut with last season s Rigoletto revival So how does this season measure up as a whole I have to agree with other commentators who have suggested a slight lack of excitement about it though I think this has a lot to do with the apparent inability of our opera houses to discuss repertoire with one another one doesn t necessarily want to see three performances of even so great a work as Meistersinger in quick succession some joint planning would be no bad thing Staging Les Troyens is a bold decision and new commissions are always to be welcomed but there are some big absences no Janacek no Britten no Handel still nothing from the major Russians does the Royal Opera even have in rep productions of Khovanschina War and Peace or The Love for Three Oranges or any intention of putting them on and a repetitive quality overall to the revivals It will be interesting to see if the arrival of a new head of opera can begin to remedy some of these gaps Labels 2011 12 Season Features Finn Royal Opera House 4 comments Vecchio John 21 April 2011 at 09 21 I agree with you about Russian works although given some of the picky reviews of the Tsar s Bride the ROH may not be encouraged to add to that repertoire Also agree about rarer Strauss but anything other than Salome Ariadne and Rosenkavalier counts as that in London these days Did you see the SO Intermezzo I made a rare trip north of the border to see it Quite enjoyable but could not help thinking how more memorable it would have been with a stronger soprano lead and more finesse from the orchestra Reply Delete Finn Pollard 21 April 2011 at 10 09 Vecchio John what baffles me about the ROH and Russian opera under the present regime is their choices a whole series of little known works and there seem to be generally good reasons why they re little known while the best are neglected Am now based in Lincoln so couldn t manage to fit in the SO Intermezzo Interested to hear your comments Really excited about seeing Die Frau at the EIF though Reply Delete Vecchio John 21 April 2011 at 10 28 I envy you the EIF Frosch but I can t make the dates The only thing that worries me is the lack of cast information as I have had bad experiences with the Mariinsky seemingly picking a cast an hour or two before the performance or at least that s how they performed Reply Delete Finn Pollard 21 April 2011 at 11 02 John Agree the casting is a potential pitfall and the decision to perform on three consecutive nights Reply Delete Add comment Load more Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Search Where s Runnicles Loading Where s Runnicles Photos where s Runnicles on

  • Where's Runnicles: Monday Night Film Club - Space Geek Fortnight
    on each of the manned Apollo missions with a couple of extras thrown in This broadly works though it doesn t always seem to be the story I want In some cases that s very wise it would have been a mistake to try and remake Apollo 13 there s nothing to improve on and with less money and less time you d only embarrass yourself Instead we never even see the inside of the capsule and get a story about how the media reacted At other times though I get the nagging sense that something is missing NASA flight director Gene Kranz a key figure in the Apollo 13 mission superbly played by Ed Harris in the film and elsewhere in the programme barely appears This is baffling However at its best it is quite superb Episode two which focuses on the aftermath of the tragic fire that killed Gus Grissom Ed White and Roger Chaffee in a test for Apollo 1 is especially harrowing Spider the story of the design and construction of the LEM is fascinating doubtless even if you re not an engineer like me Similarly the penultimate part which focuses on the toll taken on the astronauts wives makes for an interesting and fresh insight Elsewhere it s a little less successful The series would be immeasurably improved by cutting Hanks cheesy narration that opens each episode with some guff leading up to the words from the earth to the moon Perhaps these would be less annoying if the episodes weren t in rapid succession on a DVD I d say he should stick to acting except that the final episode which he penned is really rather good There are some other slightly odd choices for example I m not sure why some much of 1968 the first voyage to the moon made by Apollo 8 was filmed in black and white Similarly the decision to blend in archive footage which doesn t always quite mesh seamlessly in the manner of say Goodnight and Good Luck More generally the effects good but not great Comparison to the fantastic visuals of Apollo 13 is a little disappointing particularly in the rocket launch scenes Elsewhere it is better The sets for example appear to have been constructed in superb and meticulous detail The biggest problem is the moon itself True they ve built a vast set and using a clever effect with a bunch of lights and a giant mirror got an effect remarkably like the light source that is the sun But compared to the actual footage of astronauts bouncing around in In the Shadow of the Moon despite the tens of millions spent it just looks well fake This is especially true of the rover scenes which look very safe in comparision While the score is generally pretty good the quality of the sound recording is disappointing Still in terms of factual accuracy it seems pretty bang on and even though I consider myself fairly knowledgeable on the subject it taught me plenty I didn t know I d still rank it as an absolute must purchase if not having quite the perfection of that later Hanks HBO collaboration Band of Brothers but since that has no space geekery it is a subject for another time Labels Film Reviews Tam No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Search Where s Runnicles Loading Where s Runnicles Photos where s
