Quick Der Rosenkavalier note

Just got back from Glyndebourne. Sunny but very breezy day and excellent company (I went with two of my opera buddies).

The show: briefly put it was cute, colourful and light-hearted (I know it’s a comedy but some Marschallins get a bit too moody. Not this one.) For those who have been thinking about catching the live stream on Sunday – there’s lots of lively making out. Did I mention cute? Very cute. Also excellent interactions between the 4 mains, really well done Act II, which is not always the case.

There were cameras all over the place, so I’m hoping for a DVD.

I’m busy tomorrow all day so I won’t be able to post a proper run-down until Saturday.
