Joys of blighty

I just did a BIG ART RANT - on the art blog

and can't be bothered writing more.

Have I written about the joys of my hosts flatmate - who practices opera during the day at home? she only does trouser roles... (operatic drag kings... how damn cool)

No, will you please? I went to the opera on a whim and a super cheap ticket recently to see alcina - a handel opera all about love and illusions and smoke and mirrors and of course there were lots of castrati roles so there were a lot of drag kings on stage, in addition to the old 'my boyfriend's fallen in love with a nother woman quick i have to dress up as a man to win him back' plot device which seemed to be quite a favourite back then.
