Crushing Mice: Leonora, #23
One of the rare Mice Art originals dedicated to the start of the season at Lyric Opera of Chicago. Leonora and I are excited beyond measure about “Rheingold” which is playing tonight (and we are listening to it on the radio because I am so insane that I can’t go to premieres — I get too anxious about things going wrong even if I am not the performer:)
There are 9 easter eggs planted here which allude to the Ring Cycle for fellow Wagnerites, and the background is done really badly, but I hope by this point it goes without saying that we love mice art not for skillful execution and artistry.
