Sometimes, it’s easier not to air your grievances verbally. The death stare is totally the better, harsher and more lasting option.
The ‘that’s not how we rehearsed it’ death stare
The desk-partner death stare
‘If you want to start playing, that’d be just great.’
The ‘they don’t know that you got lost in the cadenza’ death stare
'But I know what you did. I know.'
The mobile phone death stare
Put. It. On. Silent.
The page turner death stare
As perfected by Yuja Wang. Eek.
The Bernstein death stare
For anyone, really. But particularly José Carreras.
