laying low, staying out of sight
ain’t no compass, brother, there ain’t no map

keep walking and you don’t look back

    Agreed. Audra is backup singer to precisely nobody, in my world. And I bet she’d be pretty awesome as Persephone.

    I love this opera. You can hear the tin cups and trashcan fires in their voices.

    I fucking adore this folk opera (but I’d personally prefer Audra McDonald as Persephone, thanks).
