Suddenly opera for the people is gloriously in vogue again. Raymond Gubbay's Savoy Operas may have fallen at the first hurdle, but the Royal Opera and the English National Opera press on undaunted. The Royal Opera will be relaying a performance to CenterParcs. The ENO will stage the third act of The Valkyrie at Glastonbury. That will go down a treat because great music will reach a new and enthusiastic audience in a memorable setting. Forget about the tortuous reason in the ENO press release, which says that Glastonbury is the perfect setting for Wagner's legends as the English countryside "resounds with the echoes of Britain's comparable legend of King Arthur".
