The Kosky-pensiero

Very illuminating the way Kosky explains the difference between doing opera productions in Germany/Austria and Australia. On the collective good of having a public, in Mitteleuropa, who has gone through 34 Don Giovanni or 16 Carmen. On 8 Euro tickets for students, and singers who do not need to have their career truncated just by one nasty critic. On the craftsmen power of big opera houses, and many of them. And why after Wagner a shower is necessary, since all that Tristan is not so kosher. It can be deadly, actually*.

*let’s not exaggerate, it appears that Ludwig Schnorr, the first Tristan, died of meningitis, not singing Wagner.
