|Why we have to put on tie, and ladies the good jewel on accounts of jewelry, to go to the Liceu, if afterwards Ŕlex Rigola makes that gives him the hunger with Der fliegende Holländer? Wagner deserves a respect, to the less on the part of the gentlemen, and any lady or gentleman would go to an opera of Wagner without the anointing that shows the formal dresses; but Rigola, we will see it.|
I do not criticize the direction of Rigola, of the level of the excellent work that the orchestra, the choir and the six interpreters made, singularly Alan Titus in the role of the Dutchman. But people have to be very fearless to manipulate Wagner, and with the bad milk it is very easy to fall down in the impertinence typical of the youngster or of the teacher. We see, it is well to make go out a dog in the ship, or a sailor in bicycle, like a kind of humorous licenses which make rest the public with a smile after two hours followed by Wagnerian dialogs. And dancing a song of tavern of Wagner like a rap has its grace; it can be considered even an experiment interesting. However, żwhat devils paint the machine of cokes, the teen-agers doing their drunkenness and the pornographic witches in the storm?
Eugeni d'Ors said to a young teacher who showed a scientific experiment with champagne: "The experiments, with carbonated water". Wagner, Richard Wagner.
