Katherine Jenkins: 'I'm hooked on Downton Abbey and Homeland'
Cultural Life: The singer on her favourite music, film, tv and theatre picks
Wednesday 11 December 2013
I saw Le Nozze Di Figaro at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. Not only is Mozart one of my favourite opera composers but one of my best friends from the Royal Academy of Music was playing the lead role. It was amazing to be there to support her and I loved the young, fresh, funny performance.
I watched a film called Untouchable which is a French film about an unlikely friendship between two men. It’s an amazing story, incredibly heart-warming, funny with great music by Ludovico Einaudi.
I have several books on the go, one of them is a thriller called Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and the other is a lifestyle book called The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman which is all about communication.
I am hooked on Scandal, Homeland, Downton Abbey and Broadchurch. I also have recently got into Game of Thrones. I tend to get box sets for my travels.
I recently went to the Monet exhibition at l’Orangerie Museum in Paris to see the large Water Lilies. I love Impressionism.
