Last night we went to see a production of Carmen at His Majesty's in Aberdeen. I'm not a reviewer in any way, but I enjoyed it.
What interested me is the variety of people there. Opera is always supposed to be High Culture and not for the ordinary folk. I'm not sure this is true. The audience consisted mainly of average middle class types and students. Maybe this is because it was in Aberdeen. I expect the audience for an ENO production at Covent Garden might be different - or is that just perpetuating the prejudice?
