A Night at the Opera

Just back from a night at the opera. It was the RSAMD’s production of the Coronation of Poppea at the Traverse in Edinburgh. The Traverse made a better than expected venue for the piece which was beautifully sung. A pair of chattering harpsichords kept the dialogue going. The ensemble played well and the many soloists were excellent. Dreary Seneca was particularly good.

All credit to Virtue who (rather sadly) captured my heart more than either Love or Fortune, which is the very opposite of the message of the work.
