Up and running



The first week of the season is nearly completed. My blog filling duties have been neglected but given the last minute rush of it all I can hardly be blamed (can I?)

It has been quite a week. The theatre looks beautiful and has been universally acclaimed for both the acoustics and the comfort. So mission accomplished there then.
I think this blog needs to come to a close since a) it was all about the run up (which we have run past) and b) I am so rubbish at keeping it up to date.

It has been fun doing this blog, if nothing else to help me order thoughts and keep things in perspective. Thanks for reading.

Ciao, and see you at OHP.

Simply sumptuous.

I was wondering if the 2008 season has been decided upon yet and if there are any spot for a girls seasoned in Purcell? (particularly Dido and King Arthur)

Thanks you for such a beautiful addition to the London arts, I look forward to auditioning.

Yes, we have decided it although I guess it is always possible we might change it!

Il trovatore
Fille du regiment
Tosca
Flute
Gioconda
Iolanta

All sounds splendid!

I love Iolanta - saw WNO do it a couple of years ago. Gioconda is also excellent.

And as the only person in London who didn't like the ROH's production of La fille du regiment, I'm looking forward to a new approach!
