Went to the dress rehearsal of Demasy's Jesus of Nazareth. Since Demasy is first and foremost a Jew and his writing treats exclusively biblical subjects, I was very interested to see what he would make of Christ. But I was unable to reach any conclusion about this as I had to leave halfway through - the rehearsal dragged on interminably. Demasy is not very original, but he does have some well-thought-out moments. The music, of which there was a lot, was very tiring to listen to: each of the eight scenes was preceded by an overture or similar piece by Wagner or Franck. A particularly crass idea was the overture to Lohengrin, which is all about the Middle Ages - but when the curtain rises, you find yourself in Judea!
