Royal Opera House at Covent Garden

The day after going to see the Terracotta warriors, I went to see Simon Keenlyside singing as Papageno in the Magic Flute. Here's an extract. He was brilliant. What a staging and singing and acting and music. To tell the truth, it puts the operas that come to Dublin to shame, makes them seem amateur. I'm spoiled for opera now.
We went back stage after, which took a little of the magic away and added more intrigue and food for thought.
