The Icarus idea was good but all else is garbage I saw it in   House

The Icarus thing is a  wonderful metaphor for Riccardo in the  
opera...brought down by his  "risky behavior" or hubris...as was the case 
for  
Icarus...flew too  close to the sun!


Hi, Y'all!  
Not living in New York, I have not, of course,  seen the Alden  
production--that will have to wait for the HD.  But I agree   with Dan, 
here:  the 
metaphor, per se, does indeed seem apt.   But  let's also remember:  
without 
men exactly like Icarus,  there could  have been no Orville or Wilbur 
Wright.  
And, by  extension, without men  exactly like Riccardo, there could have 
been  
no Franklin Delano Roosevelt, no  Winston Churchill, no Mahatma  Gandhi.  
"Risky behavior" isn't always as  foolish as it might  seem on the face of 
things.  
Cheers, 
Dennis Ryan
