      Dear Barbara

      There will be subtitles, and interval films going behind the scenes of the production.

      Best wishes

    Great news about the interval features! I had a bad experience driving several hundred miles to see Tosca a few years ago. It was literally broadcast from a computer (a Windows logo appeared on the cinema screen at one point) and was shown with no introduction and no interval! I hope you have a new distributor now. :-)
