Sparks - The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman

The tickets for the Sparks operetta "The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman", featuring Ann Magnuson and Guy Maddin, just went on sale this morning at 10 AM. Tickets are only $18, they're going to go FAST, and I can't see a better way to spend your June 25 evening.

Wish i could visit the States for the premiere, but had chance the other year to see them perform in London. The clip you've chosen is surely the apotheosis of the whole operetta. Haunting beautiful. And I thought it really was Garbo singing at first. Ron and Russell's magnum opera is some kind of genre-defying, but try anyway, techno- chamber glam-pop operetta. Undefinable genius and imagination. The achievement of never bothering to pay attention to trends or fashions in music simply doing your own thing musically pays off big time here.

I'll report on it, but rejoice because my understanding is there's a movie Guy Maddin will make based on it. So you will have a chance to see it. The record is fantastic.
