The Guardian view on opera: still powerful, still relevant | Editorial

The V&A’s new exhibition, the first to be shown in its elegant, recently completed extension by architect Amanda Levete, is devoted to the gloriously extreme world of opera. The show, a collaboration with the Royal Opera House, tells a story that begins with the birth pangs of the artform amid the new sounds of Monteverdi’s Coronation of Poppaea in Venice in 1643, continues with the Handel-obsessed London of the early decades of the 18th century, and passes on to the shock of the premiere of The Marriage of Figaro in 1786, with its dangerous rhetoric of social equality. Eventually – via Nabucco in Milan, Tannhaüser in Paris and Salome in Dresden – it lands in Leningrad with Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. 27-09-17

Ramadan: What do you think about a Muslim women getting kicked out of a theatre for wearing a niqab in France? I am surprised that a niqab-wearing muslim woman and her male escort would even attend an opera in the first place, especially Giuseppe Verdi's 1850's 'La traviata" which when translated from the Italian means "The fallen woman". The plot is about a courtesan, i.e., a prostitute for the wealthy, who looks and acts the part in a very low-cut revealing dress. This opera involves a live performance with a bawdy plot, buxom women in low-cut dresses, music performed by an orchestra, singing, dancing, and a bedroom scene. Maybe the muslim couple should send the opera staff a thank you note for saving them from seeing an opera full of that which muslims would say is haram.
Have you ever been to the opera? Yes. I like opera. Today's "peasants" are fond of realities. I don't compare myself with them. Besides, it's not compulsory to like opera at all.
Is phantom of the opera all music? It’s not an opera - it’s set in an opera house. It’s a music heavy show, so you will need to pay attention to the songs. But yes, there are speaking roles.
Why is Baroque Opera (like Monteverdi's operas) looked down on in Opera circles?
What Will Happen Roy Moore Wins? Twenty Republicans so far have come out strongly against Roy Moore. 11/13/17 Every Republican senator who endorsed Moore has withdrawn, with the exception of Rand Paul, who has been out recovering from injury. Editorial board of the largest newspaper in Alabama says. . . Our View: Roy Moore grossly unfit for office If he wins it won't be good for the GOP. GOP senators may kick him out (yes, they can). If they do, it will further division in the GOP. It's a lose-lose situation for the GOP.

The Guardian view on Britain and the customs union: just do it | Editorial A form of words may still get the UK government over next week’s negotiating hurdle in Brussels. But the real answer is a change of policy In 2016, more than 17 million British people voted to leave the European Union. But – as the journalist to the 2016 Conservative conference . Later, they were included in the Mr Timothy lost his job .
The Guardian view on translation: an interpretative and creative act | Editorial Translation is always an interpretation: an act of creation that also, paradoxically, demands a fierce loyalty to the original text. Translators are our guides into other times and territories. The sonnet was a southern European form brought to England through Thomas Wyatt’s translations of Petrarch.
The Guardian view on the ANC’s new leader: a fresh start | Editorial With the election of Cyril Ramaphosa South Africa has a chance to recover its moral authority, which the rainbow nation gained in its birth but has been lost in the tawdry dealings of the present South Africa’s African National Congress has done the world a favour in state has been conspicuously failing . Contracts were awarded to cronies; 783 counts of corruption if she had won . Her victory would have paved the way for South Africa to become a hereditary kleptocracy. By contrast Mr Ramaphosa is the best chance for recovering the optimi
The Guardian view on Mugabe’s resignation: the end of an era in Zimbabwe | Editorial Zimbabweans cheered and sang as they learned that their president’s 37-year rule was over. But they understand the dangers ahead Robert Mugabe’s liberation hero to his people. When he lost their support he hung on by every means at his disposal. Now his brutal reign is over. But the hope is shaded this time by deep concern about what lies ahead. Forcing his resignation was hardly simple: it took much manoeuvring, a military intervention and the opening of impeachment proceedings before he had to bow to the inevitable. What comes next is mur
The Guardian view on ‘the mutineers’: protecting parliament | Editorial They are presented as a threat to democracy. But all MPs who challenge the government play a part in strengthening it The “mutineers”, the 15 Conservative MPs pictured on the front of Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph, looked more like new members of a golf club than a clique determined to undermine the will of the people. But this was not meant as a joke, and it had consequences that were not in the least amusing. The 15, all of them potential rebels against the government’s decision to write the EU exit date on to the face of the withdrawal
The Guardian view on the Brexit talks: no veto for the DUP | Editorial Britain, Ireland and the EU had agreed a form of words. The Democratic Unionist party may be playing to its gallery but it cannot be permitted to override the wishes of the people of these islands The former Irish taoiseach in Brussels on Monday was consistent with such cynicism, it also became clear that something must give on the British side if the multiple disaster of no-deal, still craved by the Tory party’s anti-European and deregulatory zealots, is to be avoided.
The Guardian view on the SNP conference: deals and ideals | Editorial It is a mistake to write off the Scottish National party on the basis of the 2017 election. But Nicola Sturgeon faces tough practical challenges on Brexit and the public finances The 2017 general election was
The Guardian view on the Reformation: justification through faith | Editorial Luther’s 95 Theses were supposedly nailed to a church door in Wittenberg 500 years ago on Tuesday. It is impossible to read Luther, for all his coarse vitality, as an apostle of common sense. The reformation was an argument within western Christianity, not a rejection of all that had gone before.
The Guardian view on the UK’s next census: counting what counts | Editorial The Office for National Statistics is trying to find an accurate way of measuring the number of trans Britons. It’s harder than it looks Britons have been describing themselves more or less honestly to government at 10-year intervals since 1801, producing each decade a mirror that reflects back the changing world: more populous, healthier, more diverse and (nowadays) getting older. Each time, a few people declare themselves conscientious objectors, and some
The Guardian view on Theresa May: struggling to survive | Editorial The prime minister’s authority is broken. Yet the Tory party has little confidence that anyone else would do the job better Tory party politics, says a leftwing character in James Graham’s new West End play, Labour of Love , consist largely of “posh squirrels fighting in a bag”. This week, the Conservatives look all set to provide spectacular proof of Graham’s character’s scathing comment. Theresa May has come to the party’s conference in Manchester with her authority broken. In June she squandered her majority in an election she
The Guardian view on terror in Egypt: airstrikes will not end the crisis | Editorial The devastating attack on the al-Radwa mosque in northern Sinai marks a dramatic escalation in the threat from Islamist radicalism in the peninsula. President Sisi’s vow of ‘brute force’ cannot solve it To describe Friday’s horrific gun and bomb assault on a Sufi mosque in the northern Sinai peninsula as the deadliest attack by armed militants (rather than the state) in Egypt’s modern history understates it. It is one of the worst to happen anywhere in recent years. Officials say which killed more than 300 people last month , it is a
The Guardian view on Syria: Putin tests the west | Editorial As a new round of talks gets under way in Geneva, Russia seeks to cement its military gains in favour of the Assad dictatorship by securing UN validation One lesson of history is that peace plans are forged by the victors. Almost exactly a year after Talks, sponsored by the United Nations, are expected in Geneva this week. That is to be welcomed, even though hopes of a breakthrough are slim. Since 2012, numerous rounds of negotiations have come and gone, all essentially fruitless. All too often it was Russian vetoes that hampered effective

The Guardian view on refugees and migrants: solidarity, not fear | Editorial The world’s steps towards a humane and constructive response are slow and faltering. But people in flight need help and sympathy, not rejection The scale of Rohingya Muslims , forced to flee Myanmar to grim camps in neighbouring Bangladesh. A fortnight ago, other reporters’ graphic accounts of the scale of the trade. The impact of the CNN report drew unflattering attention to the EU-backed programme run by Libya to detain and repatriate migrants in order to prevent them attempting the Mediterranean crossing into Italy or Spain. This is Afri
The Guardian view on Brexit and the Bank: the challenge of populism | Editorial It is 20 years since the Bank of England gained independence. It may not survive the nationalist pressures of leaving the EU Bank of England independence, announced just five days after Labour’s 1997 landslide victory, was a tightly kept secret of the kind that Gordon Brown made his trademark. Yet it was almost at once accepted as the last, critical piece of a framework to protect the UK economy from the inflationary tendencies of weak governments on a par with joining the European Community 25 years previously. Today, at a conference marking

The Guardian view on the Kurdish referendum: a fair question | Editorial The vote by Iraqi Kurds on their desire for independence, due to take place on Monday, poses real risks in an unstable region. But their case deserves to be heard If not now, when? This is the obvious and reasonable question of Iraqi Kurds seeking to exercise the right to self-determination – enshrined by the UN charter, though often ignored – in a referendum on Monday . They already enjoy a high degree of autonomy. They believe their key role in the fight against Islamic State demands recognition, giving them leverage over western powers;
The Guardian view on white nationalism: a rising danger | Editorial Almost a century after the end of ‘the war to end all wars’, Europe is in danger of forgetting lessons from the 20th century In Britain, 11 November is known as Armistice Day, but in Poland the same anniversary of the end of the first world war is remembered as Independence Day. In the west it is a memory of triumph , although one that would be followed by still more crushing Eastern Europe was to be freed from the multinational empires that had ruled it from Vienna and St Petersburg, and in their place would rise a host of little nations f
The Guardian view on Brexit transition: Mrs May must stand firm | Editorial The prime minister must stop indulging those Tories who would push her towards the EU exit without a deal There is no concealing divisions within the cabinet on Brexit but there is consensus that Theresa May’s speech in Florence three weeks ago is the basis from which talks should proceed. That is less impressive than it sounds, since there is no consensus on what Mrs May actually said in Italy. The main point of confusion, made apparent at the Conservative party conference last week, is the form of an “implementation” phase to begin on 2
The Guardian view on North Korea and the US: shouting into the wind | Editorial The insults traded between Washington and Pyongyang tend to induce despair or laughter. We need to take them more seriously The escalating rhetoric of both North Korea and the US president is prone to polarise its audience, resulting in two contradictory and equally imprudent strains of reaction. The first is panic. As the Trumpian tweets and blasts of Pyongyang propaganda grow more extreme, the spectre of war coalesces in the public mind. But it is still a spectre, and the most likely outcome is that the immediate crisis will pass as
The Guardian view on Theresa May and Russia: keep pouring the sunshine | Editorial The prime minister’s annual speech on foreign affairs might have highlighted Brexit or the disruptive effect of Trump. But it was vital to call out Russia’s propaganda war too Britain’s prime minister makes the most striking lines of the speech, Mrs May said: “I have a very simple message for Russia. We know what you are doing.”

The Guardian view on Yemen: a catastrophe that shames Britain | Editorial The world’s worst humanitarian crisis is deteriorating as a Saudi blockade prevents desperately needed food, fuel and medicine from entering the country. London’s unstinting support for Riyadh makes the UK complicit Twenty years ago, Tony Blair acknowledged the British government’s responsibility for the Irish famine that killed one million people: a healing gesture needed because, even after a century and a half, pain and anger endured and the responsibility of another famine – perhaps the worst for decades, millions are on the brink
