This is our last week at this primary school where Tycho started school back in January 1995 followed by Edith in 1997, Leo joining the nursery in 1998 and Agatha in 2001. Agatha sent us off in good style by taking the role of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

We are feeling very proud of all our children:

lotsa op'ra

Suddenly lots of opera. First I take Edith to the Gate Cinema to see the live relay of La Traviata from Covent Garden. Renee Fleming glorious, Richard Eyre's production just amazing.
Then it's off to Garsington yesterday...on a madly hot day, to see a sparky and witty modern setting of Rossini's La Cenerentola.
What a pity the average age of opera audiences is so high.
