images  Victoria & Abdul.  Wonderful performances by Judi Dench and Ali Fazal but very disappointing in its portrayal of everything else.  I felt it was almost a parody of the British,  Pity.  Hats off to Consulata Boyle for her costume designing skills.  (Consulata is a friend of a friend)

rusalka  Rusalka by Antonin Dvorak       Two weeks ago I went to see the New York Metropolitan Opera live performance of Dvorak’s opera Rusalka – live that is at the cinema.  The Met at the cinema.  What a treat.

649x486_traviataThis week the New York Met live performance at the cinema was Verdi’s La Traviata.  Equally superb.

Opera Season at the cinema continues in 2 two weeks with Mozart’s Idemeneo.  I hope to go!
