Did You Know?


Opera singer Gillian Booth refers to conductor Philip Reinhardt [actor Julian Sands] as "my Siegfried," an adoring reference to the hero of composer Richard Wagner's epic opera-cycle "Der Ring Des Nibelungen." Coincidentally, Sands appeared in the film _Ring of the Nibelungs (2004) (TV)_ - not as Siegfried, but in a villainous role. Sands also portrayed Wagner's father-in-law, composer Franz Liszt, in the film _Impromptu (1991)_. See more »

Sands, Krige Give Good Guest Performances
1 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Julian Sands really puts on a great guest performance here as the extremely-arrogant "Philip Reinhardt." He was fantastic to watch, very believable and so intense he "chewed the scenery," as the old cliché goes.

Alice Krige also was good as "Gillian Booth," another off-the-wall character in this operatic (literally) episode. What "Gillian" did in this story certainly qualifies her for off-the-wall status.

The crime story revolves around a violinist working an opera, who is killed during an intermission break. Who would kill her and why? That's what Chris Noth ("Det. Mike Logan) and Annabella Sciorra ("Det. Carolyn Barak) attempt to figure out. Sciorra finally is given some funny lines and Noth is excellent in here. Also, Leslie Hendrix adds to this show, as she always has, as the medical examiner. She usually has something interesting to say.

In fact, the show ended with a very profound statement by "Det. Logan," who puts things right in case we viewers were tempted to feel sorry for "Gillian." Logan reminds us about how often we forget about the real victims.
