Paris is next, I hope

I have been sick for over 2 weeks and I am still coughing. Now is the time to rid my body of the last of the infection. Cough the illness away! 

Trying to go work tomorrow. Il trovatore in Paris is my goal.

Once again and it is Jose Cura as Otello. This time in Wiesbaden.

He was great and this time one could understand why Otello behave as he does because this time we have a Jago who you can see how other people could trust hime. He is a villain, no doubt about that and nothing good is in him.

A great cast. Amazing Otello, Desdemona and Jago. All the other roles was also well. And we have Bianca.

The person-regie was amazing, all the details was there. I really did not like all the sexing and alll that, men are are brutes, women are whores. So cheap to go that way. 

So some love and some meh!
