Here's something to do while you're stuffing the turkey. A reminder that BBC2 will be broadcasting the Royal Opera House's recent Tsarina's Slippers on 24 December at 2.20pm.
It should be available on the iPlayer shortly afterwards - here.
“A performance with not a single original idea...”
“What a yawn...”
“Isn’t likely to knock The Nutcracker off its Christmas pedestal...”
“Little magic [...] feeble, unimaginative production, "
“Decidedly bland and singularly unfunny"
“Charming if insubstantial"
“Daft but diverting divertissement...”
“Tedious...[...] A staging that doesn’t deliver enough of the fantasy and magic that the piece requires."
"One lead had such a raucous voice and poor intonation, it's hard to think that the invitation to perform wasn't sent to the wrong address. [...] I thank God [...] that I didn't have to sit through [it] with a child by my side

I missed the beginning - devastated, as it was superbly colourful and engaging - brilliant for Christmas TV - such a refreshing change from the dross. Anyone record it?
