On Opera

Fun with fear and failure

Horrors wrestled into being

April in London has a number of operatic things that look kind of fun

In true bel canto, the only important thing is the voice, the song

Rusalka, Royal Opera House

Opera North and English Touring Opera have plied an honourable trade without trying to gain kudos

Children are always unwelcome in Opera, except in The Magic Flute

Having the hots for Tosca

A summer of ecstatic, eccentric and not-so-operatic audiences at opera fringe

A powerful, moving adaptation of Puccini
