Someone spaced the word for "supertitle," maybe?

Because otherwise it sounds as though they're using a libretto in Swedish, backtranslated.

Maybe they'll substitute American English, like "pharmacist" for "chemist"?

Ha. Saw the final dress rehearsal Wed night, and it was translated from English English to, well, English English with an occasional use of ellipses (i.e. " . . . ").

Details are forthcoming, just in case anyone is interested.

Your second term in the tweet seat!

I'm hoping to visit LA for Albert and the LACMA California design show.
