We're off the the Tete a Tete opera festival at the Riverside Studios again on Thursday for another stimulating evening. The on Friday to Glyndebourne for their new staging of Bach's St. Matthew Passion. This has got rather mixed reviews, some critics like it, some don't (Opera Magazine describes it as dreary), so I'll report back.

Whilst at the Proms on Saturday we succumbed to their marketing campaign and bought tickets for the Nov. 11th performance of John Foulds World Requiem given by BBC forces under Leon Bottstein. The strong cast includes Jeanne-Michele Charbonnet, Catherine Wyn-Rogers, Stuart Skelton and Gerald Finley. As the performance starts at 6.30pm does this mean that the work is mammoth in length as well as scale?
