Out and About

To Oxford on Friday to visit the newly upgraded Fitzwilliam Museum - mildly disappointing, some of the galleries were closed and the general atmosphere still retains something of the froideur of the old museum. Still the newly cleaned polychrome entrance hall was quite stunning.

In the evening we took in English Touring Opera's new production of Maria Stuarda A full report will appear in due course. The production was stunning for the dramatic commitment of the cast and exemplary way that they put the English text over, in a small theatre like the Cambridge Arts Theatre this made for wonderful communication with the enthusiastic audience. Such a pity that the theatre was not full.

Staying with friends over the weekend we had lunch at the Leaping Hare, at Wyken Vineyard near Bury St. Edmunds. Delicious food with the addition of the lovely, is it/isn't sort of discussion that we all have when spotting potential celebrities. In our case, Jeremy Isaacs and Lesley Garrett, who were performing that evening at the Theatre Royal, Bury St. Edmunds.
