Snark Spot. Be arts savvy with William’s dashed off opinions.

Elektra. Sydney opera house, March 2014.
Huge, expanded Sydney Symph Orchestrs — Wagner horns, the lot. Concert performance, but the singers acted, and this Greek stuff doesn’t require much staging anyway. Sydney Opera House Concert Hall sounds better than the Opera Theatre anyway. Bizarre intrusive director stuff (always is some in Sydney): a Troupe of eight modern dancers in pastel costumes disporting themselves energetically behind the singers…. Sigh. Sophocles meets the Wiggles.
