High School Musical

Heidi Waleson bitch-slaps the Gotham Chamber Opera‘s production of Piazzolla’s “Maria de Beunos Aires” in her Water Sports Journal review. basically saying that it reminded her of the 1995 Mercy High School production of “South Pacific.” She’s particularly spiky regarding the performance of the orchestra.

Too bad, cuz Gotham is like, one of the few companies that I think is capable of reconfiguring perceptions of opera. I like immediately that they keep it small, which is refreshing, but probably upsetting to all the opera fanatic size queens.
