Letter: Opinion preferred.
I WAS rather surprised at Ivor Wynne Jones' review of Il Trovatore.
It is,of course, a matter of opinion whether it was `probably the best performance' of the opera at Llandudno.
It was interesting enough to read of early productions. I remember being with a school party seeing the 1951 production at the old Astra cinema.
But the present production was drab and lacklustre. What did the reviewer think of the chorus, conductor,orchestra,baritone and tenor?
A review of the performance should have occupied most of the two half columns allocated. The history should be secondary.
