  1. Deborah Bull on Alessandra Ferri, on World at One today, at approximately 23 minutes in: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00021qt
  2. I'm a huge fan of Desert Island Discs and have been exploring some of the back log episodes as most are available online. I was really happy to stumble across this episode with Margot but unfortunately it's only a five minute clip as the BBC seem to have lost a lot of the original sound clips. What a shame! Anyway, I'm putting on here for those, like me, who have never heard this before. I especially love how she says she likes dancing in 'the new Romeo & Juliet'...! https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p009y468
  3. A thread for any thoughts arising from the BBC's "Proms" season this year: archive recordings until a couple of weeks before the end of the season, by which time we should be getting some live concerts, even if their current programmes are as yet unspecified. My first, rather random, thought: is Rossini's overture to Semiramide as reminiscent of the music for La Sylphide as I thought it was on Wednesday?
  4. Confined to bed with some virus I have v much enjoyed watching The Snow Queen- it has some lovely sets and costumes, very good use of music, and an engrossing spectacle. I especially liked the market scene, the bandit camp ( reminiscent of Two Pigeons!), the wolves ( reminiscent of M Bourne's Swans!) and the strong female roles, particularly well danced I thought by the Snow Queen herself. This would be a great Christmas outing. I don't think they should have had the knife threat moments though. Has anyone else seen it?
  5. Putting this together from a variety of sources and contributors (to whom thanks very much, particularly RMM1 and Janite) just so we have everything more or less in one place.
