A knight at the opera.

IT may be more pleasing on the eye for opera fans to turn out smartly dressed. But most people go to look at what is happening on the stage not at the audience.

So does it matter if an opera lover wears a singlet, a pair of shorts and a smelly pair of trainers?

Royal Opera House chairman Sir Colin Southgate thinks it does and says he wouldn't sit next to someone in such an outfit.

We know what he means but deplore the way he said it. So we would not blame opera-goers if from now on they were to be more choosy about who is beside them.

WOULD YOU WANT TO RUB ELBOWS WITH SOMEONE AS INSENSITIVE AS SIR COLIN?
