Opera Seaon: Milan, La Scala @ Leicester Phoenix

Sandwagon's support and admiration goes to Leicester's Phoenix Arts theatre for showing recordings from La Scala (Milan) Opera season. I hope this venture has been well supported by the city, because not only is La Scala one the world's most prized venues its season also deserves this level of mainstream Midlands exposure. Equally, we mere mortals this side of Europe deserve the chance to view world-renowned performances that only the rich, famous, fur collared and sharp suited Milanese are usually party to.

Good work Leicester Phoenix and good luck with this venture.

Sunday 20th April at 2.30pm is AIDA (which opened the 2006 season) by Giuseppe Verdi. Tickets £12.00 (much cheaper than the real thing)
