A Quick Moan….
To the woman sat behind me this evening in the Royal Albert Hall – If you wanted to go to a classical concert and not have people cough, tap their fingers along to the fourth movement and share Wine Gums (without a single rustle I’ll have you know) throughout the second half performance of Shostakovitch’s Tenth, then DON’T buy a seat on the backrow of a Prom. In fact, DON’T get a ticket anywhere in the Hall. It’s a PROM. Looking at the totally “out-of-kilter with everybody else around you” dress you wore you are definitely in the wrong place and will be wanting a ticket to Vienna in the New Year.
