Thanks for the sloppy New Years kiss NYT.
“In Daniel Fish’s spare staging, the mood remained steadily ambiguous and haunting. Refusing to make the expected, easy political points, “The Source” ended up being a beautiful, sad, altogether crucial reflection on our time.”
and from the original review:
“…a chilling production by the director Daniel Fish and the designer Jim Findlay at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, “The Source” prompts dinner-table debates and lingers in the mind. It offers a fresh model of how opera and music theater can successfully tackle contemporary issues: not with documentary realism — television and film have that covered — but with ambiguity, obliquity, even sheer confusion.”
