From The House of Janacek

Its been a mad month of opera going - From the House of the Dead at La Scala at the beginning of March, Mefistofele here in Roma in the middle and last week it was down to Napoli's San Carlo for Maria Stuarda on Tuesday and up to La Scala again for Tannhauser on Saturday. And April 1st brings a new Tosca here at Teatro dell'Opera Roma. I recall there were times in my life when one live performance a year was a treat. Now its seems to be an unending goodie basket!

A few of my thoughts and opinions on some of these outings will be appearing on Opera Britanna, a website devoted mainly to opera and concerts in the United Kingdom but with excursions to North America and Europe.

A click on the La Scala poster will take you to my view on Janacek's From the House of the Dead as presented in Milan on March 4.
