This weekend's opera...

The First Emperor by Tan Dun. Um, I might give it another chance some day. Kinda interesting mix of "Western" and Peking opera styles, but also a little boring at times. I mean, yeah, the yin yang master was interesting, but he tended to ramble. Everyone did, for that matter, and then a whole bunch of them die and have to come sing an aria as a ghost at the very end. Oh yay! why couldn't you have been that emotional before now? oh, I'm just cranky today.
