Apropos of nothing

On the ARTS network Sumi Jo in the role of Oscar in Ballo in Maschera is going around drinking the leftover wine on the master’s table.

This reminds me of Germany. When we were doing Die Fledermaus, we drank real champagne on the stage. This may be because it’s hard to fake, or it may be because certain members of the company could be seen pouring their “wine” out onto the stage when it wasn’t the real thing. My son Chris, then 9, would come on the stage after the performance and drink everything left in the glasses.

Es lebe champagne der Erste!!
