Subject: 	Ades/Oakes Operatic Version of "The Tempest"

Elliott Stone's recommendation of 'all 524 pages of Ted Hughes' 
"Shakespeare and the
Goddess of Complete Being" ' seems excessive. It is one of the great 
bores of recent Shakespearean criticism. Indeed, with its presentation 
of the avenging Boar as 'a sort of uterus on the loose . . . a mobile 
tub entirely made of female sexual parts, a woman-sized, multiple udder 
on trotters' it becomes ultimately ludicrous.

For its American premier, the new "Tempest" could hardly have found a 
more stimulating setting.  From the Santa Fe Opera, without straining 
necks or scrambling for opera glasses, patrons see Pueblo lands as well 
as, not far away in the thin air, the lights of Los Alamos.

Best,
