Sunday 7 May 2006

We were at Götterdämmerung last night at Covent Garden, the final performance of the run. Musically it was pretty good and surprisingly engrossing considering it started at 4pm and finished at 10.15pm, though thankfully Pappano's speeds were pretty quick (Prologue and Act1 came in at 2hours 5 minutes). I'll write more on it anon.

I went through the programme for this summer's Proms and found very little to drool over. There are normally a handful of items which we can't wait to see but this summer, with the concentration on Mozart, the number of really desirable concerts is running pretty low. Not sure whether that's a statement about the Proms programming or our tastes in music.
