Lou Harrison must be one of the composers with the most beautiful handwriting out there... although this is not the only interesting thing about this score of course 🧐

Zeffirelli won the battle, not the war. Even as he stuck stubbornly to a set-is-all, traditionalist style — and a swath of the Met’s audience was stuck there, too — opera was moving on without him.

Informative article by on a sensitive pianist who plays on Tuesday. Uchida’s Schubert got me through the darkest moments of my injury; I listened obsessively to the sensitivity of her chords. I am forever grateful for the strength she gave me.

"I’ve lately been more than reconciled to the Zeffirelli, the age and familiarity of which have added a poignancy that enhances the piece — that, in some sense, completes it."

"Critics sometimes reproached Mr. Zeffirelli’s opera stagings for a flamboyant glamour more typical of Hollywood’s golden era, while Hollywood sometimes disparaged his films as too highbrow. But his success with audiences was undeniable."

"Zeffirelli began to concentrate more on the décor than the action because, unable to supervise every revival personally, he wanted to create a structure that could survive any cast, any night — and, more poignantly, himself."

Near the end, the a cappella section “Earth Seen From Above” was simply exquisite, the ensemble making a softly hovering, kaleidoscopically shifting drone as an image of our planet, wrapped around the sphere, filled in with color.
