Concert!

I've been singularly lucky, I feel! 

A few days ago I searched Alice Coote on internet. It appeared she was going to perform Schubert's Winterreise in London, on 26th and 28th. I was not very hopeful, concert not far away and ticket-prices should be high for a star like her. But oh! There were a few tickets left and I could get one next to the stage for only £18! Am I lucky, or not?

I became a fan of Alice Coote because of watching three of her opera appearances, where she seemed to be wallowing in singing men-roles and she was simply marvellous at that.

Winterreise is entirely something else of course, very sad and just her and a pinanist (or so I believe). I've been to Winterreise when I was in my twenties and was deeply touched. From what I could see so far, Alice Coote is great in bringing emotions across...so I'm so hopeful this is going to be an experience never to forget.

Thursday at 5.30 I'll step into the bus in front of our house, have myself transported to Central London, and all the way shiver in anticipation. :)
