Well, it has been quite a busy week. Last Monday I had a telephone interview with Janis Kelly to talk about her forthcoming role playing Christine in Intermezzo at Buxton (the article will be on the blog this coming Friday). Then on Tuesday were are at the British Museum to see the Royal Albert Museum and Art Gallery, Exeter, win the Art Fund Prize. Wednesday saw me travelling to Gatwick and back (the first time I've ever been to a gig on a train) for the press launch of the new Gatwick Express Tracks. Highly recommended if you have to travel down to Gatwick by train.
Wednesday evening we were at St. John's Smith Square for the last Rosenblatt Recital there, given by Sylvia Schwartz. Thursday was Prince of the Pagodas at Covent Garden, a ballet that I have always rather loved and it was nice to see it back in the Royal Ballet repertoire. Friday morning I had a long talk with Kate Flowers from Co-Opera Co. about their summer season (the article will be on the blog tomorrow). And then on Saturday I spent the best part of the day at the Southbank, seeing the Simon Bolivar Orchestra and Southwark Children's Orchestra and meeting people from In Harmony Lambeth (the first part of the post appeared this morning, the rest will be on Wednesday). Then Saturday evening we caught up with the new production of Billy Budd at the London Coliseum.
