Spoleto 2013

So much could be said about the June 7 performance of Spoleto’s double bill Mese Mariano/Le Villi. I usually focus on the singing aspect of things, but here I’ll simply say that Neil Patel’s innovative set design was breathtaking in Le Villi. Jilted maidens were presented as disturbed asylum inmates in Act II and peeled off a periwinkle floral backdrop to reveal padded walls. It was both brilliant and eerie!
