Yesterday, I rather oddly decided to buy a ticket at the cinema to watch live opera. No, I'm not actually off my tiny little rocker (well, no more so than is my custom!) - Cineworld in Falkirk are putting on a live broadcast in HD of the Met Opera in New York tomorrow night, so I will spend 3hrs in a comfy seat, with popcorn available, watching the Damnation of Faust by Berlioz. I'll be interested to see how the experience compares with the live operas I've attended. Makes a change from the the football! And will doubtless be as spectacularly costumed as "Strictly Come Dancing", with blokes as tubby as John Sargeant!
