White Shirt Monday: Mezzo on the Bounty

[How to make any military movie more interesting: cast a mezzo in uniform in the lead. Caution: count on personal Nelson moment: Tancredi Trafalgar. – Daniela Barcellona (Tancredi) in Rossini’s “Tancredi”, Valencia 2017. – in-house Clip with thanks to Dillon Hayes, through a hint from Agathe]

  1. that photo made me think of the new Tristan und Isolde production at the Met this season. And I thought, heck yes, please cast a mezzo as Tristan.


    1. Oh. OH!

      (But then I would start minding that Tristan dies. And what then happens to poor Brangaene who never gets to run off with Isolde? 😉 )



      1. [same] and [same]

        PS, Stray, I’ve been trying to leave comments on your blog but blogger apparently doesn’t love me anymore, even though I’m trying to comment with my blogger ID. Sigh.

            1. I’ve had the same issue a while back, but it’s been giving me trouble for years. Definitely not your fault, Stray.


    1. I don’t even find it hideous. And I would watch a lot more movies if they came with mezzos in uniform!



      1. You know what I think about uniforms, but this rosette thing looks like something I won at a vaulting contest aged 10 😀 (OK I had to look up “vaulting”)
