Salome, Material Girl
I really enjoyed this at the Met last night. An utterly batshit opera filled with dreadful people doing perverse things. Karita Mattila is quite good, in a role which would seem to be impossibly hard. But the Dance of the Seven Veils looked like Madonna's "Material Girl" video from the early eighties. And that kinda took me out of the experience. And I know that they're supposed to be the Angel of Death...but what's with all the creepy looking ducks upstage left?
