Mozart retained a special fondness for Idomeneo, an opera that grew out of an especially difficult period of his life.
Thwarted professionally by the Prince Archbishop, in pain from his first broken love affair and the death of his mother, Mozart was ready to pour his soul into this masterpiece of 10th- century opera seria. Idomeneo , Re Di Greta deals with the issues of making a fatal vow — and having to live with the consequences. He makes it, only to encounter his son, Idamante, Idomeneo avoids fulfilling his end of the bargain, which annoys Neptune, resulting in storms and a sea monster. Elettra, daughter of Agamemnon, has her own agenda — namely, wanting to marry Idamante. Believe it. Musically, this is not Mozart's most accessible work, though it is rich with passion and beauty.
The characters are enhanced — even defined — by Mozart's score. San Francisco Opera's production features a fine cast of performers that takes the raw mat erial and hones it into the cohesive alloy it is meant to be. Singing the title role, Wieslaw Ochman starts slowly but by Act 2 builds to a solid performance. Idamante is portrayed by Hans Peter Blochwitz in his U. Personally, I favor the use of a tenor in the interest of credibility, and Blochwitz more than fills the bill. He sings excellently, and is a credible actor. Her soprano is burnished and intense, as is her stage persona.
William Lewis as Arbace is good. Audience reaction to John Pritchard's conducting seemed less good-natured. True, Pritchard made a hash of the overture, and the first two acts were ponderously deliberate. But the music flowed seamlessly for the final act, and he deserves some praise for that, as well as for his competent harpsichord continuo. The opening, with broken gold and turquoise columns suspended by rope and pulley, was a bit heavy-handed for pie, but a realistic seascape added greatly to the effect. Idomeneo will be performed Wednesday, Oct. The movie should have been made for television and sponsored by a sugar company.

Masterson comes out for a visit, and they all get so thick you'll think Woods and Close are going to adopt her. Masterson is a pleasant surprise, holding her own with her co-stars. She doesn't quite have all the physical moves of a pregnant woman down, but emotionally she's perfect.
Even Dillon gives a thoroughly respectable performance. The boomer-baiting soundtrack is annoying. The Fabulous Baker Boys comes as dose as any to being the exception that proves the rule. Steve Kloves' second produced screenplay the first was Racing with the Moon and his first Film as director success fullv applies an '80s sensibility to a story that could have been told in the '30s with Clark Gable, Jean Harlow and William Powell. The anal-retentive Frank Beau takes care of business — and most of the patter — for the act; he really seems to believe in every hokey minute of it.
Jack Jeff is the strong, silent type, a frustrated jazz pianist trapped in the body of half a lounge act. When even those gigs start falling through, the boys realize it's time to jazz up the act by adding a vocalist. They audition 37 no-talent women before Michelle Pfeiffer stumbles in, an hour and a half late with gum on her lip.
There's no question that she can sell a song, as long as you can see her doing it. Close your eyes and you've got the sexy purr of an actress who can play a singer but can't really sing. It's not a question of if but when, and they tease each other—and us — a bit too long; but we all enjoy it. Your high school ' ring is safe.
