Since that rather disappointing Rosenkavalier back on 10 December, it’s been a rather arid month for all events musical, hence a bit of radio silence on this blog.  And perhaps this contributes to a rather unfestive-feeling Christmas period, which thus far has been characterised by a lot of driving and EDF Energy managing to make a full five-act tragic Grand Opéra (in the rather overblown French manner, appropriately enough) out of the simple act of fixing our heating supply.  No matter:  2010 is just around the corner and, if it starts with a bit of populist frippery in Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake and ROH’s Bohème, we soon hit the real deal with Elektra at the Barbican.  Onwards and upwards.  Happy New Year.
