The return of The Omniscient Mussel to the Met stage inspired composer-critic Russell Platt, editor of the New Yorker's classical listings, to devise the following supplemental list (in league with Peter Kolkay):
The Curious Bivalve (Die Liebe der Danae)
The Frisky Seahorse (Intermezzo)
The Nefarious Monkfish (Guntram)
The Epileptic Squid (Feuersnot)
The Incontinent Mollusk (Die schweigsame Frau)
I'm reminded of the Jellyfish in Spew's Gazebo of Ecstasy.
