Rameau's 'Les Paladins' -
'... a wealth of fine singing.'
Rameau wrote Les Paladins when 76. I am two years older but feel fifty
years younger after experiencing this DVD. I have been careering about the house,
shooting arms and legs out in all directions, wiggling my bottom suggestively,
leering over the banisters with the quivering nostrils of an inquisitive rabbit,
crossing the landing in one direction as a lumbering elephant, returning with the
lolloping gait of a camel. Emerging from the bathroom, I have tried a bit of
frontal nudity as long as there were sufficient people about. In other words,
Opus Arte has inspired my 2006 to an abandonment of all inhibitions.
