Traviata at the ROH

It’s first night of the second run of Traviatas this season and I’m in my dressing room all made up as the Baron and typing this brief blog. This time round it’s Angela Gheorghiu as Violetta and James Valenti as Alfredo. I have a scratchy moustache for this role which gets stuck on and invariably ends up by poking hairs up my nose and into my mouth…not very comfortable, I can tell you – and it often makes me want to sneeze!!!

I was meant to be going home tomorrow to see my boys but they are both full of colds and so, much to my distress, my wife and I have decided that it would be best if I waited a few days until they are not infectious…it would be awful to have to cancel shows due to a summer cold. So I will continue to be in London for the next week, complete the run of Traviatas and then head for home.

The beautiful sunshine continues (no-one can complain that we didn’t get a summer this year) and I am wondering what my allotment will look like when I return home… full of weeds I am guessing!!

Magic Flute at Welsh National Opera is next on the radar and I’ve spent this week memorising it in preparation for the start of rehearsals.

All for now…
