Met helenraven at the Coli for Glass' THE PERFECT AMERICAN, and motodraconis joined us in the box at the interval. It doesn't have quite the musical power of some of the earlier operas, like my fave, AKHENATEN. but as music theatre it was riveting. Director Phelim McDermott and designer Dan Potra gave it a very impressive 'look', which, of course, included some animation. This study of Walt Disney's last days had a hauntingly dreamy, melancholy quality that I think will stick with me. I'd known virtually nothing about him except that he was Not A Nice Man,disliked Women, Blacks, Jews, Liberals, etc.etc., overworked and underpaid his staff, and was maybe (or maybe not!) cyrogenically preserved at Disneyland.
This made me want to see if I can find a good (non-authorised!) biography. Damn good show, all in all, and if you're in London, you should try and go.
