All Traviata'd out

Amongst my in-tray awaiting my return from holiday was the latest Royal Opera, Covent Garden booking. Now I know that I ought to find David McVicar's new production of Salome, Parsifal with Christopher Ventris, John Tomlinson, Petra Lang, Willard White and Bernard Haitink, Eugene Onegin with Gerald Finlay, exciting. But some how, I feel as if I've seen rather too many. Perhaps my tastes are changing and the current slant on the ROH repertoire is not what I want.

I think that I've definitely reached a plateau with Wagner and can't see many visits to his operas on the horizon. Similarly, I am only really tempted by the more unusual Strauss operas. Yep. I think I'm definitely getting jaded.
