Busy Day in London Town....

A productive day: breakfast meeting at the Dorchester Hotel with Maestro Lorin Maazel talking through our plans for next year's Castleton Festival.

Last night I attended a fantastic concert he gave with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall.

Mahler's 9th Symphony. What can I say?

....Bloody brilliant.

& then this afternoon, off in the rain to Hackney Road, Shoreditch, for a meeting with designer Tom Rogers about our new production at Guildhall Britten's Albert Herring. The production opens in London on June 9th 2010.

Here are a just a few images from the outstanding work Tom has produced for me since we first worked together on a new production of Britten's Let's Make an Opera at the Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh.

Oh, and yes - the final one really is a monster computer mouse (!) from our 2007 production of Magic Flute:
