Our place in Europe

Filed under: Europe, Music, Scotland — derryvickers @ 3:57 pm

Last night we saw, in Edinburgh, Ariodante an opera by Handel a German with a libretto by Ariosto an Italian, produced by Scottish Opera with a Scottish Conductor, a heroine, Sarah Tynan, from London and only the hero, Caitlin Hulcup, from outside Europe, Australia.

And we are asked to vote on leaving the Europe in June. Civilisation as we know it has borne in Europe; whether in Athens or at Skara Brae(that’s in Orkney) it is our heritage and one doesn’t give that up easily.

By the way the production of Ariodante was excellent.
