A night at the opera,(well next best thing, live stream from Royal Opera House Covent Garden to the local cinema).

Venera Gimadieva's Violetta Vallery - La Traviata was sublime, the girl can sing. Enchanted.

Her duet with her beau's father Girgio I remember from last watching seemed to be more than I took in at the time. Tonight the accusations by him of her fallenness and unworthiness as an ex courtesan being transformed by her virtue and moral purity was beautiful. It not only saved him from his vain pride, she saved us all. Grace, humble, serving and free.

Shame she died from singing too much at the end.
