The soprano had a padded jacket, (you thought she was "hefty" at least), and a cap which hid her hair for most of the opera. At the end when all was revealed, she took off her cap and jacket. The sets and scenery was brilliant, from San Francisco. The backdrop was a blue sky/ocean. When she took off her hat , she had long blond hair, and the jacket removal revealed a svelte "blond babe". It was SO hilarious, and perfect for Californians. The "prison" walls fell "in" on itself, around the cast.

Hehe, I'm not sure if you realise it, but I am Eastern European, as in from an ex-communist state Big Grin

When I was a kid we had this book called A History of Opera, with the librettos, a bit of history/background and some info on the music of all important operas. I would read it all the time... And today this, coupled with a huge book of Ancient Greek myths I would also read over and over, allows me to come off as much smarter than I actually am Wink

Before I get scolded for derailing threads - while I haven't actually seen the whole of it, Kubrick should be ashamed of his Clockwork Orange - for an American to base it on the American version of the book, sans the last chapter, might have been understandable, but for a Brit No The book is great, though (esp. if you speak Russian, than it works on both the English and the Russian level).
