Second, the title of the opera probably translates nicely into "She's Gotta Have It," or "Women are Just Like That." The supertitles had a very modern flavor (references to Seattle neighborhoods, a "personal assistant" instead of a "maid," use of the word "hippy," Beatles quotes) and made for a lot of laughter.
Third: what happens when you lose your boyfriend? Well, according to Mozart, it looks like you turn into a goth. Our bereft heroines returned from receiving their sad news completely dressed in black, and one of them ordered the maid to close the windows. "I hate life! I hate the fresh air and sunshine!" (She really said this.) Then she said, "Oh, my existence is so wretched! I should just die rather than suffer this way." Seriously, I was expecting them to cue up 9 Inch Nails or something, it seemed so stereotypical - most amusing when you consider it was written in, what, 1790. Mary Shelley was just around the corner, culturally speaking!
