BASTA: O luce di quest’animus

BASTA: O luce di quest’animus “I said he could take his big bag of Bagatini, and his Caterina Parr, and shove them right up—” The night was wearing on at Ottolenghi’s Basement, an understated, warmly lit eatery on Madison Ave. Patrons—most loaded up on the specials du jour, truffle-anchovy crème fraiche on artisanal flatbread, wakame-infused roti in a coriander-shallot chimichurri sauce, cognac digestif—were now either opening their wallets or gathering their pelisses from the foyer.  ...

Less than hero

Less than hero

Family values

Family values

Family values An insecure leader hounded by hubris, his repressed, suppressed, and far-from-home younger wife, his tormented son whose own political life is hounded romance and tense alliances, a dangerously seductive third party set on bringing them all down, and a mysterious, threatening governing body that seems to be pulling the strings on the whole thing; a regular day in 2018 Washington, D.C., or Verdi’s Don Carlo?  Indeed, if Washington National Opera’s presentation of Don ...
