Not Today's Links

Ann Williams

Recommended Posts

Not surprisingly, this   http://www.theguardian.com/music/2014/may/11/antonio-pappano-interview-elitist-label-tiresome-opera-visceral    fairly lengthy Observer Q & A yesterday with Sir Antonio Pappano, the ROH’s musical director, didn’t make it into today’s links  - it doesn’t  contain a single  reference to ballet, or even, indeed, mention the word at all. 


To be fair, Sir A probably had no editorial control over the piece and, true, it’s  purpose was to support an upcoming concert by the Orchestra & Chorus of Santa Cecilia  in Symphony Hall Birmingham. Still, it gives the unfortunate impression that the Opera House is for opera only and that opera is SirAnthony’s only interest, and that, as we know, is far from the truth.
