No Peace, No Sex

For all that, Lysistrata is a serious, ambitious, and creatively generous piece of work that perhaps needs some retouching along with the luxury of having more time to sink in and stir an audience’s sensibilities. New American operas seldom get second chances like Adamo’s Little Women, only eight years old and already looking like a repertory piece. With luck, Lysistrata might well do the same, even when the world finds itself at peace again and can find the time to savor the opera’s ironic complexities.
