Yes, thanks volcanohunter, I want to see this if possible. Sounds very rare and should be very special if well-performed.

New York City Opera put on Platee about 5 years ago in a wonderful production staged by Mark Morris . It was delightful , very funny with a touch of cruelty

which somehow worked. Perhaps because the silly, vacuous diva is a travesty role sung by Jean-Paul Fouchecourt, a French high tenor rather than a soprano, we don't feel so guilty about laughing at her silly, vain antics.

Platee is a very unusual piece but is well worth seeing.

This just reminds me of how many wonderful events NYCO has presented. They have announced a 2010-2011 season but I won't take this further :off topic: by going into details.
