You could have knocked me over with a feather when I read that around 15 hundred of the fans attending the annual Proms concerts at Royal Albert Hall each summer -- are STANDING! (I don’t mean “Hope and Glory” standing, I mean from start to finish) That seems to be the new wave in opera, according to this report in “The Toronto Star.”
I’m trying to imagine the sound of people balancing on inflatable cushions at the back of each house section. How would you manage a three hour opera on your own two feet?
