Every night when OC goes to bed in Eres lace and linen Bellora, she says a little prayer that one day David Lynch will bring his avant-garde ideas (and hair) to opera. We always said that he'd be a perfect fit, especially after his The Air is On Fire exhibition that we caught in Milan a while back.
Recently, the American genius was in Catania, Italy for a local benefit and wanted to visit the city's opera house after hearing that it was one of the most gorgeous in Italy.
During the informal visit to Catania's Teatro Massimo Bellini, Lynch told intendant Rita Gari Cinquegrana (above), "When I decided to direct an opera, I'd really like to do it in this theater."
As OC wrote a while back, we'd love to see a Lynchian Shostakovich's Lady Macbeth. And there's this: "Opera Chic doesn't see why a smart, cool opera house should not commission him an opera staging."
