Four almost down and three (including Fantastic Mr Fox) to go. Forza and Francesca are not exactly small though and in their own ways all three of the final operas upon which we are now embarked are possibly the most challenging in our history but each is a mouthwatering prospect.
It has been a startlingly consistent season thus far and that counts for much in this business. The return of Fidelio has been uplifting and Don Giovanni has given me pause for thought with regard to my opinion of Mozartian opera (only a pause mind you). Audiences have been enraptured by the both and the house is packed to the gunnels. No complaints there then.
