A short post on Thomas Lis' outstanding performance of #Chopin at Westminster Cathedral Hall. One of the best performances I've seen so far this year. This in contrast to Matt Helders' woeful turn at King Tut's.
A fun part of the production has been assembling props - a 40s Woodbine astray, an old-fashioned bottle of scotch, a cigarette case and a whiff of 40s in the costume of the characters. And the cast - Anna Rogers, Matt Griffin and Ruari Johnson - have been extraordinarily successful at bringing Musset's characters to life in a faux-Fitzrovian setting.
