Opera Review: Raves from a Low-Brow for SF Opera Die Walkure

By John A. McMullen II
Monday June 28, 2010 - 06:02:00 PM
Mark Delavan (Wotan) and Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde)

What?Four and half hours at the Opera!Wagner?The Anti-Semite?Nazi music with the corny parody of the Fat Lady with the Horned Helmet? How many cappuccini would I have to drink to stay awake?What could keep my attention for that long?How about an octet of sopranos parachuting onto the stage?How about lightning strikes and roiling thunderclouds on the diorama?Maybe a real ring of fire!You get it all at the War Memorial Opera House, and the voices are as spectacular as the stagecraft. -more-


Theatre Review: SPEECH & DEBATE at Aurora

By John A. McMullen II.
Tuesday June 29, 2010 - 10:47:00 AM
Maro Guevara) Jayne Deely, and Jason Frank take a dance break in SPEECH & DEBATE.

Please O please O please, people!There is a reason for the theatrical convention of two acts separated by an intermission.When half of your audience has white hair and tricky bladders, you have a little break after about 55 minutes for a little potty time, a little drinky-poo, a cookie, a chat, then back in for another 45. Unless you are going to deliver a chock-a-block thrilling ninety minutes tops, dispense with the NO INTERMISSION FOR AN HOUR AND FORTY FIVE MINUTES which is how long this pointless play runs. -more-
