Sex and the City

Pretend you read Italian and get involved with this recasting of Sex and the City as an opera. What diva loves outfits more than Anna Netrebko, but they are rejecting her because she isn't a blond. See Marilyn outfit.

Italian is not difficult. Just let your brain go blank, and the meaning will appear.

Actually, I'm not rejecting her because she's not a blond, I'm just saying she wouldn't be good for Carrie's role as she hasn't got a face like a horse (erm...) like Sarah Jessica Parker does (we're "casting" singers with an oblong face for the role, FYI...)... ;)

Aww, c'mon, it's just a joke anyway! :)

Then switch her with Angela. Meow.

Someone suggested Anna as Samantha: discuss.

I decided not to do a whole thing on this. Samantha seems to scream Renee Fleming. I still see Anna as Carrie. If she isn't in the main part, she will upstage everyone else.

For personality and style though not for looks Charlotte is Angela Gheorghiu. Anna will upstage Angela and huge fights will break out.

I propose Natalie Dessay as Miranda. We can't have all lyric sopranos.

Hmm... I find Natalie Dessay would be too delicate to portray Miranda... but maybe it's just me. I'll add her to the list, though. :)

A sudden flash of insight leads me to say Susan Graham as Miranda. Why not a mezzo?

Giorgia said...

Indeed, why not a mezzo? And in fact we have Joyce DiDonato in the list as Miranda, too... :)
