OperaGold site update, and Grimes DVD review

Two items of news - neither, unfortunately, regarding our choice of opera next year! That won't be decided until October.

(1) I've updated the Opera Gold website with information about our Grimes performance back in June. If you have any photos or videos to add, email me.

(2) A new set of DVDs of Britten operas is out. One is of a 1969 BBC broadcast of Peter Grimes, conducted by Britten and with Peter Pears in the title role. There's a review of it on the Sky Arts website which is so good I could almost have written it myself.

Enjoy the summer break! Now we can start the nod-and-wink business of trying to guess what Nan has up her sleeve for our next production. Changing the subject completely, I'm just off for a haircut. And some orange juice. Haircut... orange juice... haircut... orange juice...
