    Opera Lively Facebook

    I've started posting some photos on to our Facebook page & will add more as soon as I can. These were taken during a trip in July 2010, photography was allowed & they are all my own so no problems with copyright.

    One of my favourites is the photo of the letter to Régine Crespin from Otto Klemperer. Straight to the point!

    Dear Madame Crespin, I am writing to tell you that the last scene of Lohengrin will be made without cut. I have no doubt that you knew it already. But just in case I am mistaken please study it.
    I look forward to work with you and to greet you here in London.
    With best regards, I am, yours sincerely, Otto Klemperer

    I have some crazy friends (the one with the greyhound is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology ) but never mind them where's your 'like'?

    Sorry, I have only my false-name account with one "friend", I don't think my likes from it would serve our prestige.

    Well, Aramis, once you write your first opera and become world famous and filthy rich, your "like" will be useful for our prestige. We'll say - do you know that famous Polish composer? He likes our facebook page!!!
