ClydeMay 8Liked by Opera DailyWhat a poorly written and hackish thought, that it is the dominance of male composers that’s behind the portrayal of mothers as villains. Could it be that a maternal villain is simply more interesting and melodramatic given that it is so against the type of the caring and self-sacrificing mother?I agree that most endeavors of the world would be very much improved had women and people of color had the same rights and opportunities as the privileged.2Reply
Daniel P QuinnWrites ArtsPR views by Daniel P Quinn ·May 8Liked by Opera DailyMama Lucia was a Sicilian peasant; Susan B Anthony a progressive; Mother Superior a victim of the French Revolution—-I saw all the Saints statues guiloteened in St John’s Cathedral in Lyon, France and NEVER repaired even after 200 years. I saw and felt the fury of the French Revolution on that spot in that Church. Unforgettable. They were oppressed too.2ReplyDelete
