Well that was actually a pretty good weekend. Aims achieved, and no nagging. Sometimes things seem to work out pretty well after all ;-)

Went to the opera at the RNCM on Saturday to see The Rake's Progress. I have to admit I was pretty apprehensive as it's by Stravinsky with a libretto by W.H. Auden and Chester Kallman, but can happily report that it was actually fantastic - great score, really dense story that (of course) made no sense at all, but at least you got the feeling that things were moving along pretty satisfactorily. The production was itself very good. These guys obviously have no money and are only at the start of their careers but it was altogether a bit of a triumph - very very impressive.
