(Mostly) French Operas Online at Culturebox

A pair of Py productions:

Hamlet at the Theatre Royal de la Monnaie
Through June 17, 2014

Dialogues des Carmelites at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées
Through June 22, 2014

French impressions of exotic lands:

Les Indes Galantes  at the Opéra National de Bordeaux
Through August 26, 2014

and An American in Paris:

Einstein on the Beach at the Théâtre du Châtelet
Through July 4, 2014


  1. I don't see that Indes Galantes coming to the Met any time soon.

  2. I can't imagine the Met EVER programming anything by Rameau, but I know that's not what you meant. Three thoughts went through my mind during the prologue:
    1. How charming is this? (not particularly sexy with what one reviewer called the "jiggly bits" but way charming)
    2. Only in Europe...
    3. It would only take some flesh-coloured* leotards to make it safe for prime time. I confess I haven't gotten through the entire thing, but I've really enjoyed all I've heard and seen of this performance.

    *Canadian spelling in your honour.
