Interesting... [In reply to] Can't Post

... how personal tastes for opera can vary. I'm more of a "never mind the stage setting" type of person. If it's nicely done that's fine with me. If it isn't I'm free to close my eyes and enjoy the music. Still I don't feel like I missed anything. I guess you could say I don't really go to the opera because of the adaption but because of the music. That's also one of the reasons why I never bothered with our local opera back when I lived in a smaller town. They just never really managed the same type of rock-solid quality the State Opera has here.

Anyway... back to topic. I vote for elves and istari without looking at the person in question. They simply have such a long life to look back on... they really should have a story or two or twenty to tell.
