Ah, has anyone heard this? I FINALLY got my hands on a copy today, and I've been playing it ever since. I'm a philosophy geek, I admit it, and my first professor introduced me to this opera; I fell in love, and have been trying to get a copy for three years. Granted, it's all in German, but who cares? The musical artistry here is absolutely gorgeous, and the arias are spectacular.
I suppose it doesn't hurt that I'm a fanatic for Celtic legends and music, though...
The Weaver works in many ways, not all of them for the good... She binds in Silver and hunts in Black; She works in Sorrow and fights for Joy. She weaves the Dreams and draws Illusions; She heals the Mind and shattered Shells. Her mind is cunning, Her fingers quick, but never may you trust Her, for She works for neither Dark nor Light.
