Ken Russell opera and theatre

"Opera is just like the musicals, only the music is better, and if they're produced properly, they're much more exciting.  I've always tried to make opera a human story so that people feel emotionally involved.  It mustn't be unbelievable because people need to relate to the characters."  Ken Russell, 1987.
