Thursday’s Something Else (Bizet)

tseBusy week for me so I needed a short-ish opera. I’ve clearly not listened to it today, as I’m off to Glyndebourne. I listened to it on Monday, with a head full of sand after a row of night shifts (when else can you get a kick out of writing in the past from the past but as if from the future which would then be the present 😉 ). For all these reasons, enter Bizet’s Les Pêcheurs de Perles. I’m not a French opera aficionado, so most of them’s new to me. Anyway, I liked it; good choruses and the performances were very easy on the ear. I can see myself listening to it again.
