Green Aria - the reviews are in
Green Aria Scent Opera played to full houses at New York City's Guggenheim Museum this past weekend, 31 May 2009 and 1 June 2009.
Here is what the New York Times had to say, and it made me wistfully laughing to imagine hearing the voice from backstage telling the audience of who was replacing whom during the evening's performance.
In case you worried we were growing too staid in our fragrant likes, the evening's loudest ovation went to Funky Green Imposter, from all accounts exuding a faintly sulfurous odor. Is there anything faint about sulfur?
And, James Kohl would remind us that natural redheads drive people crazy in lust due to their exuding more sulfur. You can read his work in The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor in Human Sexuality. Jim presented some of his work in the 1980's at seminars I put together in Las Vegas, Nevada; originally meeting him while a guest at a Mensa Toastmasters.
I toss a fragrant bouquet to all involved in the innovative click Green Aria and hope you make it to Los Angeles, California, USA.
