  1. Great Q & As with Sir John, such a brilliant singer & performer.

    Not entirely a different audience, I was at the dress rehearsal of the Ring Cycle at the ROH that John rescued when Brynn pulled out and John's recent appearance at the ENO in Parsifal and I'll also be at the Minotaur on the 26th. Wagner was my entry to opera which does make branching out somewhat difficult but highlights have been Sir John in Love (Waghan Williams), Turn of the Screw (Britten) and The Tempest (Thomas Ades) Lowest point was Love and other Demons at Glyndebourne (I forget the composer) and Aida at the ENO.
