    Booking tickets at ROH gives me nightmares!

    If you're on Twitter & you saw the problems people were having when the public booking opened yesterday you would see the sort of thing I mean.

    oh, I see. I'm not on Twitter and I book erratically, for better or worse. Booking for Glyndebourne was a bit funny, but I thought it was the slow connection at work...

    does that mean that although you have improved, you haven't matured yet?

    I hope you enjoy it. I saw this in the house.

    It's an unusual production (won't say more) but I loved it. Looking forward to seeing it on TV in UK this Friday.

    when I said my next opera was The Flying Dutchman this Saturday coming, it was an enormous fib, as I've just returned from seeing Carmen

    Meh

    From what I could gather the main problem was people putting tickets in their basket & when they went to pay those seats had disappeared. And when they tried again, the seats had gone.

    Siegfried at the Met on Saturday.
    Then, more importantly, my significant other in the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera's double bill of Pagliacci and Gianni Schicchi on Sunday.

    I just bought a ticket to a semi staged Cosi fan Tutte, Frans Brüggen conducting the orchestra of the 18th century in Eindhoven.

    Here is a link:

    I'm very excited about this ! It's my first concert opera performance.
