So is Jean, who is also French, in his fourth year and knows my mother and likes me very much. So much in fact that he should be getting me a free ticket to go and see Don Giovanni at the Coliseum on Wednesday. So, no, asrana, sorry, but I think I won't be free - I'm sure you understand, though. What with it being my favourite opera and all. Hurrah.
And, not lowering the tone in any way (because I stand fully behind Mr Lloyd-Webber for the things he's done well), I did watch Evita earlier and wept at how glorious it is. Just amazing, so grand-scale and stunning and, and, wow. Thank you, djm4 - what with that and Ultraviolet I think I now trust your judgement absolutely. ~g~
And now for Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Room 101. Which does lower the tone slightly, I suppose, but hey. ~s~
