L’amour de loin at the Met: first review
December 2, 2016 by norman lebrecht
On ZealNYC, first out of the traps:
Have you ever seen a really, really cute puppy sitting in a tiny, tiny crate? All full of trapped youthful life, love, joy and potential? All ready to just pop out? To be just, really fantastic?
And have you ever watched this fantastic joyful trapped puppy in this tiny, tiny crate for two and a half hours?
Well I took in Robert Lepage’s new Metropolitan Opera production of Kaija Saariaho’s haunting L’Amour de Loin tonight….
