London Coliseum to see English National Opera's bum-numbing five and a half hour long Wagner opus Parsifal.
In our seats for a 5pm prompt curtain up we were awestruck from the first note.
As some guy also at the performance on Twitter wrote: "Well, Parsifal at the ENO was marvellous. I'm all tear-stained. John Tomlinson surely the greatest singer we have. What a performance."
And I couldn't agree more. JT was brilliant. The whole kit and kabudle was brilliant actually.
The set was a masterpiece of invention (even the big revolving rock got a mention in the programme.) The orchestra was sublime and the singers superb.
Wagner at it's best.
