There was a wren in the garden this morning!

Went to see Opera North's Figaro last night, which was excellent- go if it comes to your city and you like opera at all, lovely set design/staging, funny (the "This is my mother? Oh God, really?" scene was excellent), good acting, good singing, a great time all round. Reminded of how much I love the trios and quartets.

There was a televised Figaro in English in the nineties which was fun, with the Count as a nasty Tory MEP, which I was pleased to find on youtube when i came home and wanted to see the opera all over again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPV2Ac7S6-A (I must admit I slightly want to get Mark off of Mark Does Stuff to watch it to see him getting agitated about what a privileged git the Count is!)
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQmL6ki6yE8 from Glydebourne, in Italian, with subtitles)

I finally browsed through this year's Yuletide fics; here are the ones I liked enough to keep.
fairly long list )
