The staged production looked fine, with some very impressive images, the augmented ENO chorus was in fine fettle and the soloists were good, although soprano Emma Bell's towering, elaborate coiffure looked a bit strange for a traumatised witness to the miseries of war. (It was just the dress rehearsal, though, she may tone it down a bit for the shows.) I quite liked the baritone Roderick Williams, a nice heartfelt, plangent sound.
Afterwards, I shuffled over to the NPG for the photographic portraits show. It was fairly dull. as usual, especially the winners. I entered the 'Choose your favourite' competition to win a Leica.
There was a good crowd of people at Parliament Square demanding another referendum. Fingers crossed...It might just be a possibility, now, with all the carrying on,cabinet resignations, etc.
