Critics Award of the Day (CAD): Peter G. Davis wants sexy back

tristan_viola.jpgPeter G. Davis writes this dirty review of The Tristan Project for NY Mag, recently performed at Lincoln Center. When complaining of the lack of sexiness in Bill Viola‘s dour images, he writes…

“I’m not suggesting that he should’ve gone in the direction of soft porn. But surely something more erotic was needed than a rather mopey middle-aged couple with bad muscle tone stripping naked and undergoing a lot of tiresome fire-and-water purification rituals…”

At least there’s someone out there in classical la-la-land that isn’t afraid to ask for a little orgy with his opera.

It’s sad thinking this may be the last thing Davis writes for NY Mag. But he shouldn’t fret too much: He can always write for us!
