A Night at the English National Opera

I go to the theatre a lot. I see plays, musicals, ballet, gigs, cabarets, concerts and comedy. But something I very rarely do is go to the OPERA. It’s an art form I’ve never massively connected with, and if I’m brutally honest, one I’m slightly intimidated by.

Miss Saigon with TodayTix

Spending all my time underneath the arches in a fringe theatre venue at the moment (p.s the show is getting GREAT reviews come see us k thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks!) it was exceptionally lovely to get the opportunity to venture out once again into the West End for a night of big budget theatre. I stepped blinking out of rehearsals at The Union Theatre  and wandered over the river, into the hustle and bustle of Soho. And lemme just tell ya, as I sauntered past G.A.Y the happiest song in the world,  ...
