After a, very brief, beta test, I have updated the site. The main reasons are:
1 To speed up load times - especially on slower connections. It tends to get a little "media heavy" around here and hopefully the new layout will help to counter this.
2 This is probably less a blog than a Wagner news source and I believe the new layout both better reflects this and makes browsing for information easier.
As I have said, I did briefly beta test this, and thanks to everyone that got in touch and gave highly relevant feedback. However, while I believe I have resolved the major issues, there may still be some that I am unaware of. If that is the case, please get in touch
Vecchio Chris - Richard Jones chose to set his 2009 production of Verdi’s Falstaff in Windsor in 1946. I suspect it’s driven by similar reasoning to Robert Carsen’s 1950s...
