Correct and it doesn't mean that we don't respect or we'll forget our

Will anybody who worship Walter Gropius, live in Gropiusstadt?


Tem­pi pas­sa­ti!

Don't get me wrong, if I would watch an opera, I don't like stagings
where an old story is adapted to modern times regarding to costumes and
set design. Any heterosexual man who wants to see the chubby opera
singer in a leather mini and fishnets? That's simply bad taste, she
could look cute, wearing clothes that fit to her. Are aesthetics gone?
OTOH it's good that Karajan and Bernstein aren't making music any more
and we get new interpretation of the music. They also didn't preserve
the "original" music, but coloured it and I don't like to hear their
style again and again and again.

Just my taste.
