Town & Country and a bit of Culture

A visit to Shrewsbury's new theatre was a mixed blessing. Friends P and J and I went to the opera: Rossini's  "The Barber Of Seville", a jolly romp with a lot of well known tunes. P and I are old opera hands, J is a newcomer to the art form. 

All I can say is: don't go. The performance was rather poor, the singing lacking vigour and musicality, the band was thin and hesitant.

I have one fault to find with the building itself: we saw  only one staircase and it took ages to reach the street.
