It was a Warlikowski production and mice are back! This opera has been staged 
several times around Europe and seems to be returning to prominence it had in 
the 1920s. The staging pros and cons in the audience seemed to be trying to 
outshout each other at the end. 
When I first saw it in Amsterdam in 2009, I spoke with a member of the chorus at 
the "after" party. That production had chorus members in frequent overt erotic 
embrace with their counterparts and I wondered if any of that continued outside 
the theater. He smiled but said that Amsterdam is somewhat of a "small town" and 
everybody knew everybody. No hanky-panky. 
The next opera opening, last night's Die Frau, is also a Warlikowski production.
