Nabucco

I recommend the following to anyone who can attend. It sounds marvellous, though the production is a bit of a turn-off.

I recommend it because I feel like singing Va Pensiero myself – being held captive by the Babylonians is a little like dealing with Cwm Taf health board. Not that I would describe Commissarina Williams as being in any like Nabucco. I mean, when he assumed the mantle of God he was punished for it by being driven mad. And who would be Abigaille?

Sadly, what with the necessary gender-swapping,  in this drama I think I am more of a Fenena.
