This is the end of the intendancy of the controversial (and quite lame, honestly) Andreas Homoki. (Personal hurrah from me, cuz his predecessor, Barrie Kosky, is fantastic!)
Placed on the last day of Komische Oper Festival and attended by some prominents of Berlin (including our Buergermeister Wowereit and his partner *wink*, who praised the production as 'komisch and represent the house' - BITCH, PLEASE!!!!)
It's either I was drunk or the production is just too complicated, it's failed to 'deliver the message'. I wasn't drunk, so... The changing human-animal head between scenes (even in scene, what's the point, man??), the spinning "rooms"/setting, and it's totally doesn't represent the 'fun & hip' spirit of the house. Too bad, from several of his productions they picked this one to close his duty in Berlin. Hhmmppphh...
Anyway, adieu Homoki and good luck in Zurich!
