Good morning, Rosalía

Acabo de oír a Debbie Reynolds decir que la canción Good Morning del musical Singin’ in the rain, sencillamente, “te hace sentir bien”. Punto. Por eso triunfó. Y se me ha ocurrido pensar en qué es lo que me ha hecho hoy sentir bien. Ahí va.

Rosalía Gómez acaba de ser nombrada Directora Artística de la Bienal de Sevilla. Hoy se ha hecho público. Por primera vez, una mujer que coge a este toro por los cuernos. Eso ya es para alegrarse, porque siempre es un gran triunfo para nosotras que una fémina ocupe terreno masculino, aunque sólo sea para variar un poco; además, se da la circunstancia de que ella es una mujer con criterio. Rosalía es periodista y filóloga; tiene una cultura teatral de tirarte contra la pared y sabe mucho de flamenco y de danza.

Con permiso, voy a seguir sintiéndome bien. Empieza A Night at the Opera. Y la escena en que Harpo esconde la partitura de Take me out to the ball game entre las páginas de la obertura de Il Trovatore me mata de la risa.

I just heard Debbie Reynolds saying that the song Good Morning from the musical Singin’ in the rain, “makes you feel good.” Tha’s it. The reason for being a hit. And I’ve started to think what made me feel good today. Here it goes.

Rosalía Gomez has just been appointed Artistic Director of the Bienal de Sevilla. Today it was official and published everywhere. For the first time, a woman takes this bull by the horns. That is something that makes us very happy, because it is always a triumph for us when a woman steps on a male territory, if only for a change; moreover, there is the fact that she is a woman with sound judgment. Rosalía is both journalist and linguist, has a huge culture on theatre and arts, and knows a lot about flamenco and dance.

With you permission, I will continue feeling good. A Night at the Opera is about to start. And I love that part when Harpo puts the score of Take me out to the ball game among Il Trovatore‘s overture.
