OPERA AT JOHN'S HOUSE

Here they are, the pictures of the famous opera "Die Flabberpuss" staged at John's Halloween party. Photos courtesy of renowned stage photographer Marlo Meekins.

Here (above) the young shepherd boy discovers a beautiful forest nymph (Marlo) asleep on the branch of a tree. The lad feels something peculiar stirring within him but he's on a quest and must not dilly-dally.

Here (above) the idealistic young shepherd boy encounters Katilda (Katie), the beautiful siren of the forest. She entices him to sup with her in her cave beneath a gnarly, mist-enshrouded tree. Once again the lad feels peculiar longings but he remembers his quest and bolts into the woods. Running through the dense forest the boy hears screams behind him. Curious, he climbs a tree and sees Fabberpuss (above), the towering, mushroom-covered, evil, girl-eating troll menacing three quivering fairies (Kali, Katie, and Marlo). Well, there's no time to tell the whole story. Maybe I'll continue this later. Thanks Marlo for letting me swipe these photos from your blog!

Halloween is not a cultural thing in America, either, except in the vicinity of Uncle Eddie!

Not only is Marlo a brilliant caricaturist, but apparently she's an elvish impersonator too! As for Eddie - he sort of looks like the offspring of Elton John and The Nutty Professor.

It was more of a ballet than an opera. I can attest that the audience was enthralled.

Genius! Bravo!
