Phaedra 2009

Very operatic. Fabulous vocal work. Surprised that the physicality of much of the cast was so limited. Mirren was very expressive with her body of course but I thought the male & female ingenues needed to liven up from the neck down ( minus the arms flapping). Sensational scenery. Lighting was inconsistent. Many times a speaker was in the dark for too long. Overall, a beautiful production that could have used more physical energy.

To quote Johnny Rocco…

“I want more!”
More content: Gorgeous production of unparalleled theater. Is it any wonder I want more? understand that the theater releases must make money, but I want them at home, too. It won’t put a penny of NT money at risk because when I can go to a theater I will still buy tickets because the big screen is an even more amazing experience. Am I the only one who wants to watch a play more than one time? When Patrick Stewart’s Macbeth was on Broadway my wife and I had such a great time we bought tix for the next night and had even more fun.
More insight: I’m in my 60’s and quietly geeking out over Shakespeare (many thankis BTW to Ehrin Ziegler’s Chop Bard podcast). Could we get a few thousand hours of behind-the-scenes with the dramaturgs, designers, producers, etc? I’d love to see the raw confusion of a cast’s first reading, pre-rehearsal - and for as many shows as possible. How do the initial themes that the director has in mind when prepping for rehearsal evolve or wither away? How do directing styles differ from show to show? And if we could have a compare/contrast of NT’s many Hamlets over the years!!!! Or Midsummer, or…
SO grateful NT has begun this effort. If only there were something I could do to make this site nearly as iconic as the theater itself.

Ive aways wanted to write something about amadeus ever sense i saw it the first time. I do want to say that was the most amazing performance i have ever seen in my life and i feel like i wont be able to see such truthful acting ever With every word spoken and body gesture is truthful and with the music aswell it was extraordinary it was brilliant when i saw that you guys had the website to watch it from home because of covid i was sooo happy because im from the US so thank you so much for having it available at home I hope maybe one day i will be able to see it again in person the recording is amazing as well but the night i went was even that much better thank you again
