The Pirates of Gérolstein (Gérolstein is landlocked, geddit?)
La La Grande-Duchesse de Penzance
Or perhaps more explicitly
Camilla, La Grande-Duchesse de Penzance. For years prevented from uniting with her true love by the evil machinations of Diana di Althropo. The alternative setting of this scenario, L'incoranazione di Camilla, has the innocent Diana set adrift in a boat on the Seine while the immoral Carlo di Gallia and Camila sing of their love.

I've made a diary note for the Glyndebourne "Billy Budd", Prom 60, Tues, 27 Aug with a starting time of 19.00 hrs. Hopefully, a DVD in due course. Any news of this, IGI?
So far I have visited 73 Suffolk mediaeval churches. About 260 still to go.
The (hopefully) inevitable studio recording will have to go straight on the shopping list.
Did anyone see George Benjamin's 'Written on Skin' live? (on R3 at the weekend).
I love the fact that the boat was hauled up on the beach for real. So unlike the usual limp rope wobbling away into the wings as the singers grunt manfully at a flimsy looking capstan.
Will you be there in your oilskins reviewing it, IGI?
