Oh this sounds like a dream! Have a wonderful wonderful time!


If you are in Paris for that long (lucky you) why not hop on the Eurostar to London and take in a performance of new David McVicar production of Medea at ENO? It might be your only chance to see it. According to tweet by Sarah Connolly today, it is not likely to be filmed for DVD - booh! :(


SO tempted to do exactly that - I've had all the performances marked in my calendar for months - but the dates are difficult, as most clash directly with Walküre. Or with the WNO Butterfly, which is the other thing I was thinking about hopping over to the UK for. It's a conspiracy!


Ah, life is so tough ...;)

Just saw walkure Sunday matinee at Bastille. Totally besotted with Stuart Skelton and incredible performance. Stunning! And he was clearly the darling of the audience despite the other superb singers. I hope he knows that. We had great seats and you could feel the audience reaction as well as hear it. First thing this morning I googled his name and got your blog. Can't wait to see him sing again. Wonderful, blissful afternoon/evening. The opera was just too short! Now going to look for some CDs of his. Wow.


Thank you for this lovely comment! It's been a really great season of Walküre and the audiences have been SO fantastic. I hope we're back in town again soon.
