Jim: Enjoyed your commentary on my friend Charles Schug's review of the
Miller Zauberflote at Santa Fe. Perhaps you could ecxplain why the two
items I have quoted are a "problem" - I always thought they simply
exemplified the ancient topos "things aren't always what they first
appear to be" - a concept one runs across constantly in art and
literature and certainly a favorite modern concept. Why should that be a
"problem" for a modern like Miller?
