Certainly, it is important to mention puppetry in this production. It was a great decision to use puppets as their appearance, movements and the overall presentation matched that particular part of the opera, underlined the tenderness of the music, and was generally touching and sincere, although ballet dancers are used for this episode in some other productions. After the performance, I spoke with a few audience members and several of them particularly told me that they liked the puppets. I can only nod to puppetry director Chris Pirie and to the puppeteers Taylor Bibat, Sean Garratt, Tom Lee and Amy Rose, for whom the participation in this production became their Lyric debut.

Adult ads also received significantly more online traffic than other categories—for example, as of May 2011, ads in the jobs section had approximately 2 million page views. Meanwhile, adult ads boasted over one billion. … [Read more...] about Backpage Is Bad. Banning It Would Be Worse.
