    Anyway a few points about the two performances. For the first time ever I sat at the very front, first night (27th May) slightly to the right of Pappano, last night slightly to his left. One thing I wasn't expecting was how fascinating it would be to watch Pappano at work. He grunts & snorts & snuffles

    Never been to a rehearsal before so didn't know what to expect. I thought it would be 'stop start' but not a bit of it. This was so like a performance, if the orchestra hadn't been in Tshirts & tracky bottoms you'd think it was the real thing. Sometimes the singers 'marked' to conserve their voices but that didn't spoil it.

    My seat was in the Amphitheatre which was a first for me & although the view was a bit restricted, the sound was excellent.
