Seattle Opera to Address Imperialism and More with Community Events for MADAME BUTTERFLYSeattle Opera to Address Imperialism and More with Community Events for MADAME BUTTERFLY

by Richard Sasanow - Jun 5, 2017

Just after hearing the wonderfully well sung, semi-staged DAS RHEINGOLD at the NY Philharmonic, under departing Music Director Alan Gilbert, I saw the current Broadway revival of THE LITTLE FOXES. It seemed Richard Wagner's gods and Lillian Hellman's Hubbards had lots in common: The small-minded, self-serving gods of this production, at least, could have been friends and neighbors of the mendacious, corrupt Southerners in Hellman's play (or even of a would-be-royal family in Washington, DC).
