Petra von Kant

We went to see the premiere of Gerald Barry's new opera Petra von Kant at the London Coliseum on Friday. My review for Music and Vision is here.

The audience was distressingly thin, especially as this was the first night of the new season and the premiere of a new opera by a popular composer. Whilst I did not enjoy the opera as much as some of the other reviewers, Sean Doran's season is full of good things and it would be a shame if further goodies were jeopardised by poor audience. So we must hope that attendance picks up; there were a significant number of people there who were very enthusiastic at the end.
