Listening to the live broadcast from the Royal Opera House last night was a total treat…especially when I’ll be there tomorrow evening. Surely a great antithesis to the dull and simply nonsensical Two Boys on Friday night (more on that soon!). The duets between Alice Coote and Joyce Didonato (who sang superbly despite a cold) were effervescent and simply beguiling. Ewa Podleś was hilarious over the radio I can only imagine how funny she will be on stage.
Roll on Monday night.
Till July 16th you can listen on BBC’s iPlayer and judge for yourselves!
